TREKSTOR launches crowdfunding campaign for the €249 WinPhone 5.0
WinPhone 5.0 estimated launch is March 2018
The popular electronic manufacturer based in Germany, TREKSTOR, is launching a crowdfunding campaign for its WinPhone 5.0 – a mid-range Windows 10 smartphone for €249.
TREKSTOR will try something in which others already failed, but unlike the NuAns Neo and the Celurean Moment, the Winphone 5.0 may have a better chance to see the daylight. It’s a mid-range device with a retail price of €249. You could buy the phone for just €209 if you were among the first 50 backers, but this perk has been sold out for just a few hours. Another perk, for €229, is going to be sold out soon, as 45 out of 100 has been claimed at the time of writing.
The company hopes to raise €500,000 for a month, and if the campaign is successful, the phone will be shipped to backers in March 2018.
Trekstor Winphone 5.0 has a 5-inch HD screen and an octa-core Snapdragon 617 with 3GB of RAM. The internal storage of the phone is 32GB, and there is a MicroSD slot as well. It’s a beautifully designed smartphone, with a glass back and a metal band around the sides. The Winphone 5.0 looks stylish, in the vein of the Lumia 650 but with better specs.
The phone has a 13mp camera on the back, and a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter, which is ok for a mid-ranger (Windows Phone). It weighs 150 grams, and has a thickness of just 7.6mm.
TREKSTOR promises to update the winphone 5.0 to the latest version released by Microsoft, with possible cumulative updates even beyond 2019.
