ARP Mobile unveils the XC01Q - a new Windows 10 Mobile handset that we've seen before

Japanese device brand ARP Mobile has announced a new Windows 10 Mobile handset, the forgettably-named XC01Q.

The device is launching imminently for business customers, although as Windows Central notes, pricing was not revealed in the company's press release (PDF).

The XC01Q bears a remarkable resemblance to the Funker W5.5 Pro unveiled in February, which is in turn based on the X1 hardware reference design from Coship. In addition to selling devices under its own brand, Coship is also an original design manufacturer (ODM) that sells 'white-label' devices to other companies that can be customized and branded as their own.

The ARP XC01Q appears closer in design to the Funker than the Moly-branded device, with the same thin silver band below the display that is absent on the X1. The ARP handset also has 32GB of storage - twice that of the W5.5 Pro or X1 - and its spec sheet states that it is a tiny bit heavier, and slightly thicker too, at 7.6mm rather than 6.9mm.

The rest of its key specs are otherwise identical to the Funker and Moly devices:

  • 5.5-inch display with HD (1280x720px) resolution
  • Quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor
  • 2GB RAM
  • 32GB storage (plus microSD card support up to 64GB)
  • 2600mAh battery
  • 13MP rear camera with dual-flash
  • 5MP front-facing camera
  • Bluetooth 4.0 A2DP/HFP/OPP
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
  • 4G LTE connectivity
  • 154.8 x 78.6 x 7.6mm; 137g

The ARP device is shown in blue and gold/cream variants, but it's not yet clear if the company plans to offer it in other colors.
