While much attention is being focused on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5 release date, latest reports have suggested Samsung is set to launch a new Windows Phone powered handset.
With Samsung has remained a bit part player on the Windows Phone scene as Nokia continues as the market’s leading force, new reports have claimed that the Korean manufacturer has a new WP8 powered device in the works, one that could take a number of pointers from the Samsung Galaxy S4.
According to the Twitter-based serial tech tipster @evleaks, the new Samsung Windows Phone handset will be unveiled shortly, with a US network having already teased the device.
“Samsung SM-W750V will be a Windows Phone on Verizon. Codenamed Huron, it looks very similar to a late model Galaxy S,” an @evleaks Tweet teased.
Although Samsung has as yet failed to offer any indications as to if or when it will renew its Windows Phone efforts, with MWC 2014 less than three weeks away, the mobile show looks like a likely launch venue for the company’s new phone.
While specs for the company’s new Windows Phone handset still remain shrouded in mystery, it is believed that the Samsung Galaxy S4 influenced handset could boast a similar array of innards to the former flagship phone, just with a newer Snapdragon 800 CPU in tow in a bid to better rival the latest models.
With a 5-inch Full HD display one of many S4 features expected to be brought across to the Samsung SM-W750V Windows Phone device, a 13-megapixel rear-mounted camera and 2GB of RAM have also been tipped for inclusion.
