But don’t expect them in western markets

Lenovo is said to be working on Windows 10 phones, which should launch in China later this year. 

The announcement was made late yesterday, in a statement talking about Windows 10 and piracy concerns in the Chinese market.

Reuters reports that Lenovo’s upcoming Windows phones will be available through China Mobile later this year. Details are still sketchy, but we still don’t expect to see Lenovo phones in western markets, which is a pity since the company has a lot of good mid-range devices.

That is not all. Microsoft also announced that it working with Xiaomi to bring Windows to some of its devices. Like Lenovo, Xiaomi is a force to be reckoned with in the Chinese mobile market, which is dominated by domestic brands.

On another note, Lenovo is confident that Windows 10 will help curb piracy in China. The company said it would upgrade “all qualified PCs, genuine and non-genuine, to Windows 10”.
