Trekstor's Windows phone

Remember when we revealed that Trekstor and Wileyfox announced that they would be launching Windows 10 Mobile-powered handsets? And that the Windows phone market would be resuscitated? Well, you can forget about one of them, as Trekstor doesn’t intend to sell its device yet.

Trekstor and Wileyfox were supposed to launch new Windows 10 Mobile devices

Wileyfox’s device was seen as a cynical cash-grab at first while Trekstor’s handset really seemed like a decent effort to brighten up the dying Windows phone market. Trekstor’s device appeared to offer a much better value for its money and device, WinPhone 5.0, was said to be running on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 CPU (which is Continuum capable.)

The device was supposed to sport 3GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage and a 5-inch 720P IPS screen. It was said to be priced somewhere around $350. The device’s style reminded us somehow of the Lumia 830 as it also included a glass back. The handset looked extremely attractive with its price point.

Trekstor doesn’t plan to sell its handset yet

If it came out to the market, the handset would have managed to be a decent low-mid range phone. The good thing is that this device is not just fiction but exists, but the company doesn’t want to sell it just yet. It looks like the reports about its sale and its price tag and pricing strategy were due to a misunderstanding.

All in all, the phone will not be coming to the market and Trekstor doesn’t have any concrete plans to change this for now. Windows 10 Mobile is still walking on egg shells — and this is probably one reason for which all of this is happening.
