Two WP8.1-running K-Touch Phones Announced

In WP-land the Lumia line has over 95% market share, but Microsoft has as many as 30 partners that are making Windows Phone handsets and one of them is K-Touch. The company unveiled two recent devices with the catchy names K-Touch 5705A (mid-range model) and the K-Touch 5703A (an entry-level model).

K-Touch 5705A

This model has a 5" IPS Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) with 720p resolution (that's 294ppi) and dual-SIM, dual-standby connectivity. It runs Windows Phone 8.1 on a Snapdragon 200 chipset (quad-core processor at 1.2GHz) with 1GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) and 8GB of storage, expandable via microSD cards.

With an 8MP main capturing camera and a 2MP front-facing shooter, it won't quite challenge the Lumia 830 or the Lumia 730 for dominance.

Anyway, the 1,950mAh battery promises up to 10 hours of talk time. The first SIM slot accepts microSIMs, while the second slot uses the bigger miniSIM format. The K-Touch 5705A tops out at 3G connectivity.

K-Touch 5703A

This one is closer to the Lumia 630 with a 4.5" IPS Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) with 480 x 854px resolution (221ppi). The specs claim ClearBlack, though that's a tradeimprint of Nokia so we're suspicious about this one.

Anyway, the K-Touch 5703A is powered by the same Snapdragon 200 chipset, but only has 512Mega Bytes (MB) of RAM. Storage is the same at 8GB with an expansion slot. The 5MP capturing camera on the back is fine for 720p video.

Both K-Touch phones are expected to launch in China in the next few weeks. Note that these are basically identical to the BLU Win HD and BLU Win Jr.
