Looks like Samsung’s eager to stake their claim of the Windows Phone pie as they’ve jumped the gun and announced, ahead of everyone else, their first Windows Phone 8 smartphone offering.
The new phone will be called the Samsung ATIV S, and it will be a 4.8-inch AMOLED display packin’ Qualcomm 1.5GHz dual-core powered Windows Phone 8 device which, if need it be said, draws a striking resemblance to a mobile phone from yesteryear made by a certain fruit-inspired company that recently won a case against the Korean handset maker.
Another lawsuit/product ban in the works? Possibly, so I wouldn’t be surprised if they change the design of this one before it hits the market.
As for the rest of the ATIV S specs, there’s an 8-megapixel main cam at the back (with LED flash), a 1.9-MP cam on the front, HSPA+ connectivity, full HD 1080p video recording and playback support, NFC, a 2300mAh battery as its power source, and it will be available in two models – a 16GB version and a 32GB variant.
Price and availability? Well, your guess is as good as ours ’cause we’re pretty much in the dark too as far as this two tidbits go. But in the meantime, feel free to hop on to Samsung’s ATIV site where you can find more details about their upcoming Windows Phone 8… um… phone.
