Trekstor WinPhone 5 pops up in the German Microsoft Store

It looks like another Windows phone is about to hit the market, this time in Germany with a mid-range B2B option from Trekstor.

It's not often that we see new Windows phones hit the market nowadays, but the occasional model still pops up. The latest Windows 10 Mobile-powered device to hit the scene is the WinPhone 5 from Trekstor, which has been spotted by German blog WindowsUnited.de over on the German Microsoft Store as the WinPhone LTE — though it's not on sale just yet.

According to WindowsUnited, the Trekstor WinPhone 5 was first shown off at IFA 2017 as a mid-range Windows phone based on a licensed design from Chinese manufacturer Coship. At a target price of €300, Trekstor is targeting the business to business (B2B) market in a similar strategy to Wileyfox, which also had a middling Windows phone on display at IFA 2017.

As for specs, the device packs 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor, 3GB of RAM, and a 2250 mAh battery. The display is a 5-inch 720p panel, and camera come in at 5MP on the front and 13MP on the rear. Those certainly aren't blowing any socks off in 2017, but that may not be the intention is the WinPhone 5 is targeted at the B2B market.

In any case, the phone's appearance on the German Microsoft Store is a little undercut by the fact that you can't actually buy it yet. Clicking "Buy now" on the Store page simply points to a placeholder Amazon listing for a different Trekstor Windows phone based on the Yezz Billy 4.7. Still, it's appearance should indicate it will be available soon, at least in Germany.
