Microsoft Windows 10 OS has not been released yet. However, several OEMs are already building their handsets featuring the aforesaid OS version. Notably, the new Chinese smartphone named "Yezz Billy 5S LTE" is an affordable handset that runs on the upcoming Windows 10. It is worth noting that, Microsoft will reportedly demo the unified Windows platform sometime in January.

Moving on to the Yezz Billy 5S LTE features, the handset will reportedly come with a 5.0-inch IPS display, complemented by 720p resolution. Under the hood, the device will run on either one of the two choices of chipsets namely Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 or Snapdragon 400, depending on the region of release. While the Snapdragon 400 SoC offers a quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7 processor and Adreno 305 GPU, the 64-bit Snapdragon 410 comes with quad-core Cortex-A53 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz and Adreno 306 GPU. In both the cases, the device will be backed by 1 GB of RAM, says GSM Arena.

Irrespective of the processor choice, the Yezz Billy 5S LTE will support dual-SIM and LTE connectivity options, along with Bluetooth v4.0 and GPS support. When it comes to the camera configuration, the smartphone will reportedly sport a solid 13 MP rear-facing unit, in addition to a surprisingly good 5 MP shooter at the front for selfies.

As far as the memory goes, there will reportedly be 8 GB of internal storage capacity and microSD card support for further expansion. Moving on to the release date, the Yezz Billy 5S LTE will be made available for the Chinese New Year in February. Adding a cherry on top, the Snapdragon 410-powered variant will be heading to the U.S. following the debut in China. On the other hand, markets in Asia could be getting the Snapdragon 400-powered variant with Windows Phone 8.1 on board. However, the OS version will eventually be updated to Windows 10, says the same site.

What do you think of the first Windows 10 powered handset? Upon making the handset available in the U.S., will you buy one? Or will you wait for Microsoft to release its Lumia devices? Feel free to leave a comment.
