These are two of the first Windows 10 smartphones that should be launched this year

While Windows 10 for PCs and tablets will be available starting June 29, Windows 10 for smartphones will arrive a bit later. Naturally, Microsoft will be among the first to release handsets running Windows 10 out of the box (new Lumias, of course), but there are also little-known companies that will join the party. One of these companies is Cherry Mobile, a top smartphone maker in the Philippines.

Cherry Mobile this week announced that it's getting ready to launch two Windows 10 handsets: Alpha Prime 5, and Alpha Prime 4. Both will be powered by 1.1 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 210 processors, featuring LTE and 2 MP front-facing cameras. The Alpha Prime 5 (pictured above) will sport a 5-inch display of unknown resolution, also offering an 8 MP rear camera, 1 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of storage space. The Alpha Prime 4 (which probably looks a lot like the Prime 5) will feature a 4-inch display, 512 MB of RAM, and 4 GB of internal memory.

Cherry Mobile didn't say exactly when it's going to start selling its Windows 10 smartphones, and neither for what prices. In any case, this is the first company (besides Microsoft) to announce Windows 10 handsets.
