Cherry Mobile Alpha Prime

Philippines-based phone and tablet maker Cherry Mobile teased us last weekend that it would reveal some big Microsoft-related news at this week's Computex 2015 trade show in Taiwan. Today, the company came through, revealing plans to launch two smartphones, the Cherry Mobile Alpha Prime 4 and 5, that will be sold with Windows 10 Mobile pre-installed.

Gadgetpilipinas.net has the bare-bones hardware specs for both smartphones, but we suspect that the "Snapdragon 8909" mentioned on both phones is in fact a misprint and is supposed to be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor. Update: One of our commentators also mentions that 9809 might be a reference to the Snapdragon 210 processor. We will try to contact Cherry Mobile for clarification.

Alpha Prime 4 Specs:

  • Snapdragon 210 (MSM8909)
  • 1.1Ghz Quad Core
  • 4-inch Screen
  • WCDMA 900/2100
  • FDD-LTE B1/B3/B5/B7
  • 5mp Main Camera
  • 2mp Front Camera
  • 4gb ROM
  • 512mb RAM

Alpha Prime 5 Specs:

  • Snapdragon 210 (MSM8909)
  • 1.1Ghz Quad Core
  • 5-inch Screen
  • WCDMA 900/2100
  • FDD-LTE B1/B3/B5/B7
  • 8mp Main Camera
  • 2mp Front Camera
  • 8gb ROM
  • 1gb RAM

Cherry Mobile has not announced a launch date or prices for the Alpha Prime 4 and 5 and it's likely that neither phone will be ready until sometime this fall at the earliest. That's likely when Microsoft will officially launch Windows 10 Mobile itself.

Thanks to Kenneth for the tip!
