An unknown new device running Windows OS recently received Bluetooth certification for North America, signaling it may be launching soon.
Little is known about the mystery gadget, but documents reveal it has a 5-inch display with 1080 x 1920 QHD resolution. It also appears to support VoLTE and LTE connectivity.
This suggests it could be a Windows-powered smartphone designed for the North American market. However, the certification provides no other details about the device’s specifications or features.
Microsoft has struggled to gain traction in the smartphone hardware market, lagging far behind Android and iOS. The company has partnered with vendors to release Windows phones in the past with limited success.
This latest Bluetooth certification could point to an upcoming Windows phone headed for North America. But with no further information available, it’s unclear whether this is a major new device or just an incremental update to test the market.
Nonetheless, it’s a sign that despite its setbacks, Microsoft hasn’t completely abandoned Windows on mobile devices. More details would be needed to assess the prospects and potential of this mysterious certified gadget. For now, it remains an intriguing data point for Microsoft’s mobile efforts.
