Samsung starts working on Windows Phone devices

Samsung Windows Phone 8In India, there is a quote – “Der aaye, durust aaye.” which, in English means “Better late then never”. This quote fits perfectly for the above title.

Samsung, which is known for its wide range of Android devices than any other smart phone company, is said to be working on a Windows Phone 8.1 model of its galaxy series.

As per a tweet for famous leaks provider @Evleaks, Samsung’s upcoming Windows Phone 8.1-powered handset will be known as Samsung SM-W750V “Huron”.

Looking at the render’s physical properties, it has nothing much change in it. It looks like the Samsung’s previous flagship devices like Samsung Galaxy S4 and Samsung galaxy S3.

What is worth noting that, like Nokia’s Windows Phone, Samsung Huron will allegedly have a Windows logo on its standalone home button.

It’s unclear if the rumoured smart phone will have capacitive touch buttons for ‘Back and Search’ (similar to Samsung’s Android phones and the Ativ S Windows Phone handset) or the on-screen buttons.

There is a rumour that Microsoft might include on-screen navigation buttons in future updates but it can’t be ignored that the image in the render might be missing the hardware buttons or they’re not backlit.

Not much is known regarding the specifications of this smart phone but previous rumours suggest that it will feature a 5-inch full-HD display running Windows Phone 8.1.

Earlier today, Samsung sent invites for a February 24 event in Barcelona where is expected to unveil its flagship device, Samsung Galaxy S5.

Also, it is also possible that Samsung showcases this rumoured phone running Windows Phone 8.1 but chances are very rare. That is because, any phone that Samsung launches, the leaks and rumours start coming months before.

While the Windows Phone powered Samsung device has not been into limelight for a long time, the phone might see a day of light sometime at the end of this year.
