There aren’t many users who expect new Windows Phones to come to the market in the near future after Microsoft itself admitted that the operating system is currently in maintenance mode.

Despite that, one of the last supporters of Microsoft’s mobile platform is HP and the company recently admitted how it is not interested in Windows 10 Mobile anymore.

Experiments for launching mid-range Windows 10 Mobile handsets are in the works

WhartonBrooks is a US-based company that started an Indiegogo campaign to launch a mid-range Windows 10 Mobile handset called the Cerulean Moment which ended in failure.

Other companies tried to do the same thing, one of them being the German company Trekstor, who recently launched a brand new Indiegogo campaign for the its WinPhone 5.0, another mid-range Windows 10 Mobile handset that has the potential to be quite appealing to many users.

The WinPhone 5.0 is a better version than WinPhone 4.7

Trekstor’s opinion is that WinPhone 5.0 is a much better version of the previously released WinPhone 4.7. The company already presented this new handset at IFA 2017.

The device comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 CPU, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and a 13MP primary camera. The Alcatel Idol 4S is quite similar to this device and Windows Phone fans would probably prefer it because it features much better specs.

Windows Phone users are migrating towards other platforms

We will have to wait some more to see how this experiment will work in the future because while there are still some Windows Phone users left, a big part of them are moving to other devices.

For instance, Android is currently the most viable platform for phone manufacturers, so it remains to be seen how all this works out.
