According tomedia reports, Microsoft’s mobile OS experiment ends in January 2020, and the last wave of Windows mobile devices will not receive any updates or feature patches or security improvements. While Windows’ journey on the phone is officially over, Emperion, a British company, says it has developed a prototype of a Windows 10 on ARM phone that supports Android apps.
Emperion says it fits Windows 10 on ARM into a phone-sized device that can run Android apps, require no simulator, or start Windows with Android duals.
Windows 10 on ARM is essentially a full version of the SnapDragon SoC desktop operating system. ARM-enabled Windows 10 devices can run desktop applications through the simulation layer.
For Nebulus, it uses an overclocked SnapDragon 845 processor and is compatible with Windows 10 on ARM.
While Nebulus can also run Android apps directly, Emperion doesn’t know how its Windows 10 phones will run Android apps. It looks like this device running Windows 10 on ARM has made some mobile-friendly adjustments and may be able to run Google apps through virtualization.
Microsoft also helped them with their development efforts, according to Emperion.
The company says the Nebulus is equipped with two 13-megapixel AI rear cameras and a 10.5-megapixel front-facing camera. It also has a 6.19-inch Cosmos display, 6000mAh battery, 128GB of storage (up to 2TB), and front-facing 1CM Dolby speaker. In addition, it will be equipped with 8GB of RAM, WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC and even 4G LTE support.
ARM version of Windows does not support phones, which means that the ability to make calls over the cellular network will not appear.
According to the manufacturer, the project is still in the prototype stage.
It was also learned that the UK-based company was working with a Chinese wireless carrier to develop a SIM-free and unlocked version. As for the equipment, the reservation will begin soon.
