Microsoft revealed new Windows Phone-based devices at Computex
Contrary to what Microsoft already owns Nokia, the company is not going to stop cooperation with other manufacturers of devices with Windows Phone. Yesterday at Computex Microsoft showed the device from Blu, Prestigio and Yezz.
Company Blu has a strong market presence in South America. They produced two models with Windows Phone, but information about them is almost there. The device will be offered in different body colours. In addition, one of the models will offer a 5-inch display, while the second smartphone has a 4-inch screen. The latter is also equipped with a Snapdragon 400 processor, 512 MB RAM, 8 GB permanent memory and a 3.2-Megapixel camera. The device will appear in the USA and South America later this year.
Phones from Prestigio look exactly like the images that appeared online about a month ago. MultiPhone 8500 DUO is equipped with a Quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 5-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1280 x 768 pixels, 1 GB of RAM and dual cameras, the main of which has a resolution of 8-MP. The device also supports two SIM-cards. Sales in Europe will start from next month at a price of $ 235.
The second device from Prestigio is the name of MultiPhone 8400 DUO. This model has a 4-inch IPS display with a resolution of 480×800 pixels, a Quad-core processor with a frequency of 1.2 GHz, 0.3-Megapixel and 8-Megapixel cameras and the ability to work with two SIM-cards. The beginning of sales is planned for August at a price of $ 115.
The third manufacturer, which showed the device with WP, called Yezz. The first smartphone of this company called Billy 4.7. He was named in honor of bill gates. The device comes with a Quad-core processor, 13.1-Megapixel camera and a 4.7” IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1280 x 768 pixels. The thickness of the Billy 4.7 is just 7.2 mm making it even thinner than the iPhone 5s. The phone will appear very soon at a price of 250 dollars or 230 euros in Europe, South America and the USA.
Yezz will offer a smaller model, called the Billy 4.0 and has a 4-inch display, 8-Megapixel camera and a Quad core processor. The cost will be $ 139 or 129 euros. Both models from Yezz will be sold exclusively through Amazon.
It is worth noting that many manufacturers showed interest in the mobile platform from Microsoft just after the company offered free Windows licenses for devices with screens less than 9 inches.
