Hisense joining the Windows Phone arena with the MIRA6

After Microsoft dropped licensing fees for mobile phones for Windows Phone OS, Indian and now Chinese phone makers are starting to make use of the alternate operating system.

Qingdao’s, Hisense electronics company have decided to be one of the first to introduce a Windows-based phone for the local market.. The MIRA6 will feature a 5-inch screen, possibly a 720p unit, a 1.2GHz Qualcomm quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal memory which of course will be expandable. It will also support dual SIM cards and even 4G TD-LTE. An 8 mega pixel rear camera and 5 mega pixel front take up positions on the exterior of the 7.18mm thin body.

Hisense unfortunately did not reveal the price of the MIRA6, but judging be the hardware and previous Hisense phones we don’t expect it to be expensive. International customers will likely have to wait however, as the phone appears to only support networks in China for now.

    Hopefully Hisense will follow good tradition among Chinese phone makers and their next Windows 8.1 phone will be larger: 7″ phablet with 3GB Ram, USB 3.0, 2K screen and HDMI.

      That would indeed be an amazing set up. They could even realize that with a full blown Windows installation and not the mobile variant. Just imagine, having a phone with Windows on it, and if needed you put it in a dock, attach screen, mouse and keyboard to it and have a full blown office PC.

        Hi Christopher, just like the Asus Transformer TF700T, but instead with Windows and a 7-8″ screen. As a Dutch I want also my phablet to support productivity and efficiency.

    this (dropping licensing fees for mobile phones for Windows Phone OS) could be the smartest marketing and market growth that MS has done it in the last 10 years.
    Let’s wait and see what is going to happen! Will WP OS gonna be an serios adversary for Droid?
