Microsoft Canada launches the Yezz Billy 4.7 for $199 off-contract

At CTIA in Las Vegas this past fall, Miami-based Yezz showed off the Billy 4.7, a budget smartphone running Windows Phone 8.1. Already available on Amazon.com (though not through Amazon.ca), the Billy is on its way to Microsoft Canada soon.

Microsoft Canada’s website has a product page up for the device with a ‘coming soon’ tag accompanying the specs. When it does launch, the Billy will be priced at $199, significantly less than the $230-or-so USD it costs through Amazon.com.

As its name suggests, the Yezz Billy 4.7 packs a 4.7-inch display with a 1280 x 720 pixel resolution, a 1.2Ghz quad-core Snapdragon 200, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of integrated storage (expandable up to 128GB via MicroSD), an 8MP camera in the back, a 2MP camera in the front, a 1780mAh battery, and dual-SIM support.

Update: The Yezz Billy 4.7 is now available through Microsoft for the $199 and includes shipping.
