Samsung is rumored to be working on a new Windows Phone device dubbed as Samsung Huron codenamed SM-750V. Recently, the handset was spotted at the FCC, and also made an appearance on the Bluetooth SIG.
Not too long ago, @evleaks jumped in the situation and shared an image of the upcoming Samsung Huron, saying it will be come to Verizon with Windows Phone 8.1 as its operating system. Now, he’s back with more information, saying it will be branded as Samsung Ativ SE when it will hit retail at Verizon.
The handset has seen its fair share of rumors, and at first sight, it looks quite similar to last year’s Samsung Galaxy S4, but with Windows Phone as its operating system.
There’s no word from Samsung about the launch of this device, but it could become a reality in the coming months. Microsoft is rumored to launch the Windows Phone 8.1 in April at the annual BUILD 2014 conference, and we could expect the handset to hit retail after Microsoft is done with the unveiling.
Microsoft also partnered with nine more OEMs for Windows Phone, including a few from India and China. There’s also a rumor circulating on the internet that the company is planning to reduce the license fees for the Windows Phone OS by as much as 70 percent, and if it turns out to be true, we can expect a few OEMs to launch Windows Phone devices later this year.
Let’s just take this rumor with a grain of salt, and wait for the Korean OEM to make things official.
