First Windows Phone 8.1 handset from Prestigio pictured

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.

I think the back texture looks alright but that front doesn't look great. I am glad to see more mfg on WP though

You got five guys on here getting free facials daily from MS, a few hiding under Nokia guises. You'll never win the argument, even though 96% of the world knows the truth that WP is literally a gold-plated turd if it isn't running on Nokia hardware. Sorry, off topic...

That Gold plated turd has influence smartphones design language without Nokia's help, it is a trendsetter within the software realm just as Nokia is on the hardware side, they go great together. The haters are getting free daily facials from Google and Apple after all it is a WP related article. Great to see more and more OEM's adopt the newly free license OS.

Blah, blah, blah. No single OS preference for me, but I do dislike me some fanbois. I'm an equal opportunity truth teller. Truth is, 4%. Good luck increasing that without Nokia. Good to see four out of the five said MS fankids have gone all butt-hurt here. LOL.

Please Microsoft, demand all OEMs to bring back the dedicated camera shutter button. Thank you! :D

I don't think it will happen. MS wants manufacturers to be able to easily put either WP8 or Android on the same device. That's why they removed the requirement for the camera button and the capacitive buttons.

No, not demanding that they do anything is the point.. That's how MS got 15 manufacturers on board with WP this year... Up from like 4!!... MS is in no position to demand anything.

hmm the screen on it is not to show the maximum amount of tiles Windows 8.1 allows a user to use. looks like a windows 7/8 screen. it does look like a device for people on a budget. that is not a bad thing some smart phones cost more than they should any how. it's the monthly pay plans that hurt your pocket more than the cost of a smart phone some times

If you are talking about contracts, yes ; but what you are doing is paying the device every month..

MultiPhone? Almost sounds like a multi-boot device :D

WP is still way behind both Android and iOS. I hope Microsoft would get rid of that weird flat Tile UI in next Windows 9.

In WP 8.1 you can add any background in the world... Flat is optional now.. So, no need to complain about that ever again..
