Samsung Heron passes through FCC, ready to land in Verizon
Samsung Heron will be released by Verizon, according to a new leak
One week ago we shared the rumor started by @evleaks about the upcoming Windows Phone-powered smartphone by the Korean manufacturer Samsung. The tipster revealed a lot of juicy details about the SM-W750V.
First, it seems that the handset has the codename Huron. It is still unknown what the official name of the model will be. Interesting information that leaked for the smartphone is that it will remind a lot to the “late model Galaxy S” which we believe is the Samsung Galaxy S4. The company did something similar for its first smartphone company that works on the Microsoft’s platform; the Samsung Ativ S.
One of the most interesting things unveiled by the tipster is the news that Heron will be released by the US carrier Verizon. The rumor is confirmed in a new leak, this time coming from the FCC. The SM-W750V model aka Heron has received its certification from the agency, which means that there is a good chance to see the smartphone officially announced.
According to the FCC database, the handset supports the LTE bands of Verizon. It will be provided with connectivity features, such as Global 3G, NFC, dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The FCC entry does not reveal anything new about the appearance of the upcoming smartphone. The previous leaks about Heron made the hint that we might see it with a 5-inch screen with 1080p, quad-core processor paired with 2GB RAM and 13MP rare camera. Samsung Huron will be the first high-end Windows Phone-running smartphone by the company. It will bring some diversity in Verizon’s devices as well. For now the carrier is not offering advanced models running on Windows Phone. Nokia Icon is the most anticipated device that is expected to land on the Verizon’s shelves soon. Time will show how well the Samsung Heron will compete against the high-end Lumia smartphones and phablets.
