Samsung already took a stab at the Windows Phone 8 market with the ATIV assortment, and is now back with a larger, badder design for Windows Phone 8.1. Baseding on a breeze published by the ever-reliable Evleaks Twitter deal with, the device is codenamed “”Huron”( version SM-W750V), and along with looking significantly like the Galaxy S4 (as the ATIV S instead did the Galaxy S3), it will certainly also be carried by Verizon Wireless in the Usa.

It’s been a complete year considering that the Korean outfit came via with the ATIV Odyssey, and with Windows Phone continuouslying struggle, it’s hard to gauge the amount of worth Samsung will view in creating these WP tools. Even though the company has a reputation for offering terrific variety to its customer base, if the ecosystem continuouslies play a quite remote third to the likes of Android and iOS, Samsung may instead concentrate its attentions on Google’s common system, where it markets millions of devices annually.

With Nokia while being gotten by Microsoft, it’s quite clear that the Redmond is in the smartphone battle for the long run, but today, it’s extremely hard to view points being reversed. Developers seem to be staying away from the Windows Phone Store like the torment, and with Samsung barely showing up to invest often past a lot of re-jigged model of crown jewel Android mobile phones to the source, one highly presumes that codename Huron will be the last release for Windows Phone from the business.

The Mobile Global Congress kicks off later on this month in Barcelona, Spain, which is the most likely place for Huron’s introduction. We would certainly expect a relatively high-end equipment encounter à la GS4, however till either Samsung officially offers the information or a further crack provides us with this details, it’s simply an enlightened assumption based upon previous releases.


Incidentally, MWC is likewise anticipated to play host to Nokia’s first Android smartphone, which, provided the scenarios of Microsoft’s looming acquisition, can also be its last. Different leakages have actually pointed to an interface mixing aspects of Nokia’s Asha and the floor tiles of Windows Phone, however despite sizable proof that the gadget (Nokia X, Normandy) is in existence, there’s still a consensus that Microsoft will step in and shelve the idea totally.

Just what do you believe – – exists any value in Samsung releasing a Windows Phone 8.1-ready tool? And furthermore, should Nokia be drawing such an action on Windows Phone by dealing with Android? Do share your thoughts here!
