First Windows Phone 8.1 handset from Prestigio pictured
Earlier this year, Microsoft announced new Windows Phone hardware partners, and one of them was Prestigio. Headquarted in Cyprus, Prestigio isn’t well-know in western markets, as it concentrate its business in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.

While Prestigio has yet to officially announce its first Windows Phone handset, this appeared in a few renders recently, alongside a list of specs.

Reportedly called Prestigio MultiPhone PAP5507 DUO, the new handset obviously runs the latest Windows Phone 8.1, and doesn’t look bad at all. According to Russian website Hi-tech, the smartphone features dual SIM support, a 5-inch 720p IPS display, HSPA+, 8MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of expandable internal memory. The processor that’s powering the MultiPhone PAP5507 DUO seems to be a quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400.

The Prestigio MultiPhone PAP5507 DUO should be available starting July in Russia and other European markets. Its price isn’t known, but we’re expecting the handset to be quite affordable.
