Another Continuum phone: the COSHIP 'MOly W6' announced

Published by at

So, admittedly we're getting a bit tired in the UK of new Windows 10 Mobile hardware being announced somewhere else in the world and then never even getting to see it in the flesh, but hey, another manufacturer latching onto Continuum with some thought as to possible use cases has got to be good thing. In this case it's the Chinese made COSHIP 'MOly W6' (sic) phablet, details below.

From the MSPU story:

The full specs of the Moly PCPhone W6 include:

  • Display: 6-inch FullHD display, Gorilla Glass 3
  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 617
  • RAM: 3 GB
  • Memory: 32 GB, expandable via MicroSD card
  • Camera: 13 megapixel with LED flash, front camera: 5 megapixels
  • Connectivity: Wi-Fi ac, Dual SIM
  • Battery: 3900 mAh, not replaceable
  • Dimensions 160 x 82.3 mm 7.9
  • Other: USB Type-C

The handset is currently listed on Coship’s website but not available for pre-order yet. It’s not know how far it will be distributed, but presumably areas which have access to the current Moly handset will also have a chance at the latest version.

It's significant that this is labelled as a 'PCPhone', with headline use cases:

  • Walking into a meeting with just your smartphone for seamlessly projecting Office apps presentation to a larger screen and when having your call the work will can still be done on the screen.
  • ​A girl is browsing Reddit on Monitor and her boyfriend is browsing emails on the Moly W6 at the same time. The boy gets a phone call and steps into the kitchen for a while to talk and the whole time the girl is browsing Edge like nothing changed.

Well, they've got the idea anyway. A Snapdragon 617 and 3GB of RAM does seem the minimum spec to run Continuum, with USB Type C here helping make the process smoother.

The phablet/handset itself is pictured below, just don't expect to see it in the West in a shop anytime soon, though it does seem as though you CAN preorder now.
