Samsung had a few attempts at making an entry in the Windows Phone sphere, first being with the Ativ S I8750, an S3 imitation having running the Windows Phone OS, and afterwards two more in the shape of the Ativ Odyssey and the Ativ Neo S. It seems that they were not so interested in leaving their already vast ground gained with the Galaxy series running on Android. Yet there may still be a new Samsung Windows Phone in the works for next year.
Rumor has it that the new flashgrip appeared under the name of SM-W750V, a 5 inch smartphone that’s been listed recently by Zauba, the “home to India’s import and export data.” Sadly, there aren’t too many details about the SM-W750V, but Blog of Mobile (in Japanese) says it’s running Windows Phone 8. Could it be another attempt for Samsung to expand their perspective and really try to gain some ground in the Windows Phone area? We don’t know yet.
When the first Windows Phone was released, the Ativ S I8750 and the Galaxy S III were identical in design, so it would make sense that the SM-W750V could be a Windows Phone version of the upcoming Galaxy S5. If that’s the case, we can expect it to have a Full HD display and a Quad-Core processor, given the recent Windows Phone 8 GDR3 update that features supports for Quad-Core processors.
Samsung’s Galaxy S5 should be officially announced somewhere in the Q1 or Q2 2014 timespan, and maybe the SM-W750V will be unveiled at around the same time.
