South Korean electronics giant Samsung is thought to be shipping a new Windows Phone 8 device, following on from the 2012 Samsung ATIV S.
News of which comes from the Indian shipping company Zuaba’s website, which recorded the importation of an unreleased Samsung mobile phone.
It is said to be called SM-W750V, coming in from the Republic of Korea.
Also noted that it contains a 5-inch screen, and supports a single SIM.
Stamped across the records are the wording ‘For R & D purpose‘ and ‘for testing & evaluation’, plus ‘not for retail’.
All of which indicates that it is in the latter stages of its development cycle, heading for a possible release next year.
The price tag of Rs. 33,245 puts it around the £320 mark, meaning that it is a high-end device and not a budget model.
SamMobile notes that it could be a Windows Phone 8 device, where the latest GDR3 update sports full 1080p screens, along with quad-core CPUs – and those are likely to feature here.
The website adds that it could have specifications similar to the Samsung Galaxy S4, and it would be its Android equivalent in the new WP8 space.
That is in the same way the ATIV S was its Windows Phone version, of the Samsung Galaxy SII.
Omio believes that we won’t see this device launched, until in Mobile World Congress , at the end of February.
