Microsoft’s mobile OS experiment ended in January 2020 and the last wave of Windows Mobile devices won’t receive any more updates or patches with features or security improvements.
While the journey of Windows on phones has officially ended, a UK-based company said they have prototyped a phone that runs Windows 10 on ARM with Android apps support.
Emperion claims it packed Windows 10 on ARM into a phone-sized device called ‘Nebulus’, and the phone can run Android apps without an emulator or dual-booting Windows with Android.
Windows 10 on ARM is essentially a full version of the desktop operating system for Snapdragon system-on-chip (SoC), which is the processor used in Android phones and tablets. ARM-powered Windows 10 devices can run desktop apps via an emulation layer if the apps were complied in 32-bit.
According to Emperion, Microsoft also helped the startup with the development of its smartphone.
The company says Nebulus comes with two 13MP AI rear camera and a 10.5MP front camera. It has a 6.19-inch Cosmos display, 6000mAh battery, 128GB storage (expandable up to 2TB), and front-firing 1CM speakers with Dolby.
According to the manufacturer, the project is little more than a prototype brick at the moment.
Emperion was not clear on how its Windows 10 phone will run Android, but the company says that it will start taking pre-orders for the device soon.
