Ucall's Windows Phone leaks, 5in display and a delicious price

While they are not the largest known company in the world, a French vendor called Ucall is set to release a new Windows Phone and the specs have leaked out.

The phone, which will be targeted at the entry level, will cost 139 Euros ( $191.00) without a contract will sport a 5in display, 8 megapixel rear camera, 3 megapixel front facing camera, 2300 mAh battery, dual SIM support, 4GB of onboard storage, 1 GB of RAM, and a 1.2 Ghz processor.

The specs clearly show that the device is targeted at the bottom end of the spectrum but at 139 Euros off contract, that’s not a bad deal.

The device appears to be clad in plastic and does look a bit like Nokia’s entry level models as well. The device will be called the Redmond 5 which calls homage to Microsoft’s corporate campus in Redmond, Washington and the number 5 in the name indicates the 5in display. There is also another Windows Phone device in the works, according to the source, that will be slightly smaller than the Redmond 5; the other device is expected to have a 4.5 in display.

The Redmond 5 is expected to arrive in late June.

It's not officially dead. It's now optional and up to the OEMs to put it.

What I think is, the lower-end devices won't have it and the higher-end devices will. But again, depends on the OEM. I can see Nokia doing this.

Romero said,
5", but what's the resolution? Also is this going to have 8.1?

It should have 8.1 but I don't know about the res, it could be 480x800 though, 720p would be nice but for the price odds are low.

It has to be noted that in France, prices are VAT included, that means that you should expect 139€ to be something close to 139$ in US before taxes.

It seems like we're in for more 4.5" and 5" devices this time around, that seems to be the range that the majority of users like overall.
