After releasing the Windows 10 Mobile build for Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL on Feb 24, Microsoft now announced its plans to offer the Windows 10 Mobile ROM for the OnePlus 2 and the recently launched Xiaomi Mi 5.

This isn’t the first time where Windows 10 coming on an Android device. In December, Microsoft teamed up with Xiaomi to test Windows 10 Mobile on its Mi 4. Xiaomi tested Microsoft's mobile operating system internally, and made the ROM available for users using the Chinese version of Mi 4.
What’s interesting though, is that both the devices; The Mi 5 and OnePlus 2, sport a USB Type-C connector. Now there hasn’t been any news with respect to continuum being available on these devices, but considering the presence of USB Type-C, it seems highly likely.
