Last September pre-orders launched for a new handset with a funny name: the Yezz Billy 4.7 Windows Phone. Far from just a silly name, the hardware packed punch, so at CES the manufacturer unveiled its Yezz Billy 5S LTE phone, a worthy successor under the hood and above it.
Unlike its predecessor the Billy 4.7, the Billy 5S is capable of 4G LTE due to its integrated Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor. And while Yezz showed a Windows Phone, Android phone and even a Firefox OS-based phone, the company gives a little extra attention to its Windows Phone history by showing other manufacturers how WP can be done.
We saw the Windows Phone version at CES Unveiled and loved every ounce of it. Not that there are many ounces therein, mind you. The Yezz Billy 5S LTE is incredibly sleek and lightweight, with its curved lines making it seem even smaller. Its new ergonomics also include the rumored soft-touch panels on the back cover of Yezz Billy 5S LTE.
Under the hood, the Yezz Billy 5S LTE has a 1.2 GHz Quad Core Processor and a 13 MP rear camera with flash and a 5 MP front camera. Going back to the appearance for a moment, it also has a 5-inch HD display. The Yezz Billy 5S LTE comes equipped with dual SIM technology and will feature Windows 10. Remember that “little extra attention” to Microsoft mentioned above? Yezz is all over it, and in a great way.
Windows 10 has substantial updates, all of which are on display in the Yezz Billy 5S LTE, including app synchronization through various devices and increased app compatibility.
Yezz’s partnerships with Qualcomm and Microsoft have been key in the development of the Billy 5S LTE, not to mention to the company’s rapid growth. We can’t wait to get our hands on the Yezz Billy 5S LTE for a longer period as it gets closer to release.
