Funker W6.0 enriches the offer of 10 Windows Mobile smartphone with support for Continuum mode. A mid-range product, based on the Snapdragon processor 617.
The selection of terminals based on Windows Mobile operating system 10 grows with the arrival of W6.0 Pro 2, marketed by Spanish Funker who recently it entered at the official website. It is a device Windows 10 Mobile worthy of mention because it enriches the offer (not so large) of W10M midrange devices that support Continuum mode, which is the native function of Microsoft’s mobile operating system that enables you to turn your smartphone into a mini-PC.
The product is equipped with a large display 6 “FullHD, is positioned in the category of the phablet and integrates the SoC Snapdragon 617, which is the main chipset-end media certificate to provide the power needed to handle Continuum. As found in other terminals designed for that last job, the hardware configuration is completed by 3GB of RAM, associated with Type-C USB connector, suitable for connection to any docking station.
Detailed technical characteristics of the product include:
- Display 6 “1080p with glass Gorilla Glass 3
- SoC Snapdragon 617 octa-core 1.4 GHz with Adreno 415 GPU
- 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage
- 13 MP front camera and 5MP front
- 3900 mAh battery
- Bluetooth 4.0
- WiFi 802.11 a / b / g / n / ac
- 4G LTE connectivity
- Type-C USB connector with support Continuum
- Dimensions: 160 x 82.3 x 7.9 mm

Funker W6 Pro 2 is proposed at the price of 379,90 euro at the company’s online store. Price from medium to high-end device, justified by an allocation of sufficiently rich series and the significant plus of Continuum. It is not known at the time, if the distribution of the product will exceed the boundaries of the Spanish market, provided that the interesting users may want to consider buying online.
Products such as Funker W6 Pro 2, at this stage, are important for understanding the projects of individual companies engaged in the marketing of Windows 10 Mobile smartphone. After the position taken by Microsoft, which confirmed to postpone to 2017 the production in person to further W10M smartphone, the task of expanding the ecosystem is up to the partners. The market shares of 10 Windows Mobile devices, unfortunately, remain scarce but some features, such as Continuum, could allow to capture specific market niches. The fact that companies like Funker continue to invest in the sector is therefore encouraging.
