The Computex 2015 became a platform for the Philippines-based phone maker Cherry Mobile, to announce two smartphones that will be known for being the first to run the upcoming Windows 10 Mobile OS. This is a little known company, and is clinging on to Windows Mobile, although the OS is not one many other brands are using, except for the OS maker Microsoft.
These are low-end devices, and nothing except the fact that they will be the first to ship with Windows 10 Mobile pre-installed, is interesting about them. Named as Alpha Prime 4 and Alpha Prime 5, these two smartphones are coming with 4-inch and 5-inch screens.
Both the phones are supposedly going to run the Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor clocking at 1.1 GHz, and with that, you already know how much to expect when it comes to performance. The Alpha Prime 4 with the 4-inch screen has a 512MB RAM and 4GB internal storage, while the camera combination is 5MP rear and a 2MP front-facing camera. On the other side, the Prime 5 has a 8MP camera on the back, and a 2MP one on the front.
On the connectivity side, the phones will support FDD LTE apart from the other standard options. The good thing about these phones would be that, although the power looks too less, Microsoft has made Windows 10 Mobile easy on it and optimization is done to make the Windows 10 Mobile OS work well on low memory devices as well.
The phones aren’t getting launched anytime soon, and that is understandable, because you won’t be seeing a phone running an OS that is not released to the public. Probably this fall, Microsoft might announce the Windows 10 Mobile OS and then Cherry Mobile might swiftly release the device for sale, with an attractive price.
