If you're one of the few remaining on Microsoft's all but dead mobile platform that is Windows 10 Mobile, we have some good news for you. Trekstor is now crowdfunding a new mid-range Windows 10 Mobile handset for release in 2018 that's packing a Snapdragon 617 with 3GB RAM and 32GB of on-board storage. All for just €249.
Known as the WinPhone 5.0, Trekstor is looking for €500,000 to complete its funding goal, and has around a month left before that goal needs to be reached. Trekstor says its looking to release the device in March 2018, as long as its goal of €500,000 is reached.
The full spec-sheet is as follows:
Trekstor WinPhone 5.0 Specifications
|Display||5.0-inch 1280x720 IPS Gorilla Glass 3 Display|
|Processor||Qualcomm Snapdragon 617|
|Camera||13MP rear-facing camera
5MP front-facing camera
|Ports||3.5mm headphone jack
|Dimensions||71.6 x7.6 x 142.4 mm|
This device fits comfortably in the mid-range arena, and for the price of 249 you're getting an okay deal. The biggest problem with this device for most people is the fact that it's running Windows 10 Mobile, which outside of dedicated fans, isn't enough for most people these days.
If however, Windows 10 Mobile is fine for you and you are interested in this device, you're going to have to help Trekstor reach its goal of 500,000 before a month is up, because if it doesn't reach said goal, the device will not be funded and as such, won't be released.
