After almost a year, the Cherry Mobile Alpha Prime 5 is now officially available! Just to refresh everyone’s memory, Cherry Mobile’s Windows Phone was announced at last year’s Computex event in Taiwan. Then last month, the Alpha Prime 5 debuted at CeBIT. How come it took them this long?
From what I know and heard, Microsoft did not release Windows 10 because it was not ready yet. Come to think of it, the first Windows 10 Mobile handsets released were the Microsoft Lumia 950 and 950 XL late last year as well as the Acer Liquid Jade Primo. Well, better late than never.
Here are the Cherry Mobile Alpha Prime 5 Specs:
|OS:||Windows 10 Mobile|
|Processor:||1.1 GHz Qualcomm MSM8909 QuaD-Core Processor | Adreno 304|
|Display:||720 x 1280 5" HD IPS Display|
|Wireless Connections:||LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi b/g/n, GPS|
|Memory:||8 GB Internal Storage expandable with a Micro SD Card up to 32GB, 1GB RAM|
|Cameras:||8 Megapixels (Main), 2 Megapixels (Front)|
|SIM Card Slots:||2x Micro SIM Card required|
The Alpha Prime 5 is now available nationwide and has an SRP of P3,999.
I was already sent a review unit a few days ago and currently evaluating it. I’ll be posting my review hopefully by next week.
