Samsung’s greatest success was due to the emergence of Android. When we talk about the Samsung Galaxy S series, no other series of any other company can beat its thumping success. Sales as well as popularity of this series are awesome by any standards. But, in the shadow of Android-powered Samsung devices, people forget that Samsung too produces a couple of Windows Phone handsets. This is mainly because of the lacklustre sales of the Ativ series of Samsung’s Windows Phone 8 devices.
However, things might change very soon. According to reports by WPCentral, Samsung is preparing a new Windows Phone handset with a 5-inch screen and this handset is going to release this year itself. With its release, the Windows Phone market share, which has been stolen by Nokia, might trickle a bit in Samsung’s bucket too.
This new device has not been officially reported anywhere, only one thing is known about it and that is its product code – SM–W750V. Nothing much is known by the product code, but we know that this smartphone would carry a 5-inch 1080p display screen and run on the Windows Phone platform thanks to Samsung’s and Bluetooth SIG’s website.
This is going to be a high-end smartphone, as the reports say, but the features and specifications would remain unknown till we get an official word about it. Some guesses have been made though, the device would include the Windows Phone 8 Update 3 and the Snapdragon 800 SoC, along with LTE connectivity, would drive the processing power of this handset.
Previously, Samsung has produced Ativ S and Ativ S Neo under the line-up of Windows Phone smartphones. These phones came with Snapdragon S4 processor, clocked at a frequency of 1.5 GHz and a 4.8 inch 720p display screen along with an 8 megapixel rear facing camera. So, as a progression, Samsung is bound to produce a better Windows smartphone with improved features.
Whether the device would be successful or not cannot be determined at this stage, the best we can do is to wait for the launch.
