Microsoft’s partners have announced a lot of Windows 10 devices at IFA 2017 in Berlin. From Windows Phones to laptops, notebooks and now a Pocket PC. Ockel demoed the new Sirius A with Windows 10.
A phone running Windows 10 Mobile with Continuum support could be turned into a PC with keyboard, mouse. However, if you want to keep a full version of Windows 10 in your pocket, Ockel Sirius A might be your best bet.
Back in 2016, Ockel announced the smartphone/phablet and it has already raised over $640,251 funds. Today at IFA 2017, Ockel confirmed that the Ockel Sirius A and Sirius A Pro will be shipped out to the backers first.
“This year we were also part of the IFA ShowStoppers event. We met with press from all over the world and the amount of positive reactions was mind boggling. Everyone got their chance to play with the Ockel Sirius A,” Jesper Baumgarten said.
Powered by Intel Atom x7 Z8750, Ockel Sirius A runs Windows 10 Home (64-bit) and delivers a powerful experience. It also comes with Intel HD Graphics 405 and 4GB RAM, 64GB of internal storage. It has microSD slot, 2x USB 3.0, DisplayPort, HDMI, USB Type-C and LAN. Unfortunately, it has only 3000mAh battery which is apparently not enough to run full Windows 10.
The Ockel Sirius A features a 6-inch full HD display with 1920 x 1080px resolution. The device even has the front facing camera, speakers and as well as microphone. Just like any smartphone, the Sirius A also comes with Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Magnetometer sensors.
Ockel Sirius A is a thick device because it has many USB ports. The phablet will be available in a choice of three colors; Meteor Grey, Venus Gold and Moon Silver.
