China-based phone maker Coship has announced plans to launch a new high-end Windows 10 Mobile device, the Moly PcPhone W6.  The new device is a 6-inch phone and is expected to launch later in 2016 for a price of $399.

The company has previously released other Windows 10 devices, including the Moly X1, as well as the Mouse Computer MADOSMA Q601 (which is only sold in Japan). Just like the Moly X1, however, the new Windows 10 Mobile device is expected to be available for purchase in the U.S.

In the company’s pre-order page for the device, Coship is listing that the Moly PcPhone can is both “like a PC, Like a Phone.” This would make sense, because as reported by Microsoft Insider, the device itself packs a very large 6 inch 1920 x 1080 display, and is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of onboard storage, and a 3900 mAh battery.

The dual-sim device also sports a 12 MP rear camera and a 5MP front-facing camera. Of course, the large screen Windows 10 Mobile device will also support Continuum, which will allow the phone to be used as a PC when attached to a device like the Microsoft Display Dock.
