NuAns, a Japanese manufacturer has launched a new Windows 10 Mobile smartphone, NuAns Neo. The device seems quite interesting: unique materials, highly customizable and looks inspired from Lumia fabula design language. This is also the first launched Windows 10 Mobile device running on Octa-Core Snapdragon 617 processor and Adreno 405 processor, though we have earlier reported one such device from GFXBench. NuAns Neo also features USB C support.

It also seems that NuAns Neo supports cool features like Continuum for Phones and Quick charging that allows about 80% charging in one hour. As seen on official page,

NEO’s battery is about 1.5 to 1.8 times bigger than that of normal smartphones; giving the NEO life for about 2 days. However, because of the larger battery, charging takes a little longer. To combat this, NEO is equipped with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0, which increases the voltage for a quicker charge; charging about 80% in about an hour.

Here is one demo of Continuum for Phones on NuAns Neo. So, now it seems more processors will support Continuum. The NuAns Neo has a special Continuum accessory that doubles as a Table lamp too.
