Feels a little odd writing about all the new Windows 10 Mobile handsets that are set to launch, like this Funker W6.0 Pro 2 smartphone that comes with support for the Continuum feature.
Odd because, the Lumia lineup has pretty much dried up.
Microsoft is said to be working on the Surface Phone, and has passed the mantle of new devices to OEM partners. Like this Spanish smartphone maker with a funky name. Funker is preparing to follow up their W5.5 Pro with the W6.0 Pro 2.
And the smartphone has been silently listed on its website for preorder, with an expected delivery date set for August 29.
A look at the specifications of this midrange handset:
- Display: 6-inch 1080p with Gorilla Glass 3
- RAM: 3GB
- Storage: 32 GB
- Processor: 1.4 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 octa-core
- GPU: Adreno 415
- Cameras: 13 MP rear-facing, 5 MP front-facing
- Battery: 3,900mAh battery
- Connectivity: Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11, 4G LTE
- Others: USB Type C, Continuum support
- Dimensions: 160 x 82.3 x 7.9mm
- Weight: 176g
As you can see, this phone is one of the first to use the Snapdragon 617 chip, which is the most affordable solution from Qualcomm that offers support for the Continuum feature.
This Windows 10 Mobile powered handset is priced at €379.90 on the website above, which is quite a bit more than the €239.90 price tag that as attached to its predecessor, the W5.5 Pro. However, the internals have also been upgraded to justify the increase in cost.
All things considered, the Funker W6.0 Pro 2 will be another addition to the Continuum ecosystem, with some notable specifications.
Including a decent-sized battery and large capacious screen.
