NuAns is back with Neo Reloaded, but it’s Android-powered

Back in 2015, Japanese company NuAns showed off its Windows 10-powered Neo smartphone for the first time. It’s selling point was the TWOTONE interchangeable covers for its back. The phone debuted at CES 2016, post which the company announced its plans for the device’s global launch through a Kickstarter campaign.

The campaign, however, failed.

Then earlier this month, it came to light that the company is coming back with a new version of the phone. And indeed, they are back, with a phone named Neo Reloaded. The key difference here is that the company has ditched Windows 10 Mobile in favor of Android (Nougat).

Spec-wise, the new device is powered by Snapdragon 625 SoC, and sports a 5.2-inch full-HD display. RAM is 3GB, and a 3,450mAh battery is there to keep the lights on. The handset features a fingerprint sensor, and the interchangeable covers functionality is there as well.

It carries a JPY 49,800 price tag (around $440). As for availability, it’s set to be launched on May 31, 2017.
