Microsoft’s Windows Phone division couldn’t be happier than this as world’s largest smartphone-maker Samsung will be launching its Windows Phone 8.1 handset soon, that too for Verizon Wireless in US.
Popular gadget leakster @Evleaks posted a new photo, which looks like a typical Samsung Galaxy device but with a physical homekey with the Windows logo on it. The new Windows Phone device from Samsung will be named as “Huron” and the model number is SM-W750V.
According to the recent leaked information at wap.samsungmobile.com, Samsung’s next generation SM-W750V device will be come with a 5-inch full HD display with 1,080 x 1,920 resolution, LTE support, single SIM support and running on latest Windows Phone 8.1 OS. And from an application at bluetooth.org, we could say that it has Bluetooth 3.0. Nothing more than these details revealed yet.
That means, Samsung could launch its next flagship Windows Phone device with features similar to that of the high-end Android smartphones. We expect to see this device in this month’s MWC 2014 Barcelona event along with its other Android handsets.
The funniest thing to note here is – While “Android-king” Samsung is on the way to launch its Windows Phone device, the “WP-king” Nokia is already set to launch its first Android handset – Nokia X (previously codenamed as “Normandy”). Hence, there could be a big transformation happening in this year’s Mobile World Congress event – stay tuned!
