SM-W750V to be a Samsung Windows Phone heading to Verizon
The mysterious handset took the codename Huron and seems pretty similar to ‘a late model Galaxy S.’
Just last month a very interesting device surfaced on the website of the Indian shipping company Zuaba under the model number of SM-W750V along with few specs that were enough to point out a flagship class device. The thing that grabbed everyone’s attention is that the unknown handset might be a brand new Windows Phone 8 device by Samsung. Apparently 2014 might really be a time for big change- Nokia releasing an Android phone, Samsung getting more serious with Windows Phone 8, and the year has just started.
Today our favourite leaksters from @evleaks shared some important info regarding the SM-W750V and according to their tweet, the device will be a Samsung Windows Phone heading straight to Verizon. Furthermore, the mysterious handset took the codename Huron and seems pretty similar to ‘a late model Galaxy S.’
Actually, the last line sounds accurate as Samsung’s very first Windows Phone 8 flagship model Samsung ATIV S was similar to Samsung Galaxy S3. Naturally, we should all assume that the upcoming flagship-class Windows Phone device Huron will be similar to Samsung Galaxy S4. So far, we only know that the device will sport a 5-inches display with the resolution of 1080 pixels. Everything else, we can easily assume for ourselves from the information we got from the latest leaks. Logically, the processing power should get a significant update as the device needs to compete against Nokia, so it’s most likely to go from Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 straight to a Snapdragon 800 paired with 2GB of RAM. In order to compete against Nokia, the handset should also retain the 13-megapixel camera from the ‘base’ Galaxy S4 model. Unfortunately, we still need to wait for Samsung to at least spoil us a name of the device (aside from ‘ATIV’) and we also need to find out whether the device will hit the global market. So stay tuned.
