HiSense announces NaNa: first Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 device




Probably the smartest move Microsoft made since it announced its partnership with Nokia a few years ago was to make it possible for OEM phone manufacturers to jump on the Windows Phone wagon.

After Microsoft updated it Windows Phone OS to make it compatible with most existing Android hardware in the market and also introducing free licensing to use Windows Phone software, OEMs have flocked to the platform and the Windows Phone platform is expanding faster than ever.

The latest Windows Phone launched is the NaNa by Chinese phone manufacturer; HiSense comes preloaded with the latest WP8.1 Update 1. Update 1 hasn’t officially begun rolling out but you can get it with Microsoft’s Preview for Developer app, its main feature being the Live Folders.

The NaNa is also the first Dual SIM windows Phone with both CDMA and GSM are supported.

HiSense NaNaOther Specs include:

a 1.2GHz Dual-Core Qualcomm CPU

with 5-inch 854×480 resolution

512mb RAM

4GB internal storage memory

MicroSD slot with up to 32GB

2000mAh battery


The Phone has hardware capacitive buttons, Android navigation buttons to be exact, which is the huge benefit Microsoft gains after they updated the OS to be compatible with any hardware. Another benefit of that is the upcoming HTC One W8,  a Windows Phone version of the M8, hope we get a windows phone version of the Galaxy S5, Note 4…
