Elephone isn’t a household name in most of the world, but the Chinese company already makes some pretty interesting smartphones. It’s latest device, called the Vowney, is no exception, offering high-end hardware and the option to choose between Windows 10 or Android 5.0 Lollipop software.

The device packs a 5.5-inch Quad HD display, a quad-core Intel processor, a 20-megapixel rear camera, a 4200mAh battery, 64GB of storage, 3GB of RAM and a fingerprint reader in back. It comes in grey, white or gold and costs just $299. There’s also a second version of the Elephone Vowney that only runs Android and packs an octa-core Mediatek chip.

The Android-only version of the device is available to order, though it won’t actually arrive until September 30. As for the dual-booting variant, it won’t be available until October 10.

By then Microsoft’s first Windows 10 smartphones should already be official. The company is expected to reveal two new handsets at an event set for October 6, but if you’re looking for a powerful phone that can run both Windows and Android, the Elephone Vowney is probably still your best bet.
