Another Android handset spotted running Windows 10 - this time from ZTE

We recently reported on a project by Microsoft to develop a special ROM for Android devices allowing them to run Windows 10 for phones. Xiaomi, which is partnering with Microsoft on the program, recently showed off its flagship Mi 4 device running the new operating system.

But it seems that Xiaomi may not be the only company to support the project, as the new OS has recently been seen running on the ZTE Nubia 9, an unannounced Android smartphone.

Spotted at the WinHEC conference in China by, the Nubia Z9 features a 5.2-inch full HD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset, and an Adreno 430 GPU. 32 GB of internal storage is provided for users, with 3 GB of RAM. It also comes with a 16-megapixel rear camera with OIS (optical image stabilization), and an 8-megapixel front shooter for selfie-lovers. While ZTE has not yet announced the device, it was widely believed that it would be released with Android 5.0 Lollipop on board.

Xiaomi and ZTE are not the only companies to have experimented with the Windows Phone operating system for their Android handsets. Back in August last year, HTC launched a Windows Phone version of their One M8 Android flagship smartphone. Moreover, a company called "Wei Yan" in China is also rumored to launch the Sofia, a device that dual boots both Windows 10 for phones and Android 5.0 Lollipop.
