Samsung rumored to be working on a 5-inch 1080p Windows Phone handset
The Windows Phone market is currently dominated by Nokia, whose devices and services will come under the supervision of the Redmond giant itself in the coming months. HTC and Samsung did launch their own Windows Phone handsets, but it’s been a while since we saw a handset powered by Microsoft’s operating system. Well, it seems things might be different in the future, at least for the Korean OEM, who is reportedly working on a Windows Phone 8 handset. Jump in to find out more details about the purported handset.
Let’s start. Recently, a mysterious Samsung handset popped up on the Bluetooth SIG with a model number SM-W750V. I know this isn’t anything interesting as it could be any Samsung device. Interestingly, the same handset was also spotted in a user-agent profile on the official Samsung website, which clearly lists “Windows Mobile Lab. Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.” under the organization title with Internet Explorer as its default browser, so it’s pretty safe to assume that we’re looking at a Windows Phone handset.
What’s even more interesting are the specifications mentioned in the UA profile. They are scarce, but it clearly lists that the device rocks a 5-inch display sporting a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels with LTE connectivity.
Well, let’s just take this as a rumor as there’s no official word from Samsung about the launch of a Windows Phone 8 handset, but you never know. Until then, let’s just take this news with a pinch of salt, we’re hopeful we’ll see more information about this mysterious device in the future.Further reading: Samsung, Windows Phone
