Samsung Cronus: Will the Windows Phone 8 Offering Dent the Nokia Lumia Market?

Posted by:

Although, Samsung is said to be investing less on R&D and more on marketing these days, it is somehow pulling up its devices sales as compared to other market leaders. So far there there has been very less talks and gossips about it's latest Windows Phone called Ativ S Neo. However, this time Samsung might put a little more effort to bring its recently rumored Cronus to perfect limelight in Windows Phone 8 arena.

Nokia Lumia 925 on the other hand which is also powered by Windows Phone 8 is coming soon in India but Samsung's latest Windows powered device called Cronus could pretty much become a threat to the Lumia 925.

Moreover, Samsung already has a handful of Windows Phone handsets in it's pocket like Samsung Omnia M, Samsung ATIV S and the latest Ativ S Neo. However, now, Samsung Cronus has been spotted in a description of Mobile Care which is an official Samsung app available through Windows Phone Store. The device was rumored back in May and was said to come by Q3 along with LTE support.

Samsung's latest Windows Phone 8 device supposedly called Samsung Cronus is now likely to come soon as the description on the app clearly says that it will work on Samsung Cronus (Developing), Samsung Ativ S and Ativ Odyssey (for Verizon). The description further reads that the Ativ S and Ativ Odyssey will first need to be updated to Windows Phone 8 GDR2 to be compatible with the app. Further, GDR2 isn't mentioned next to the Cronus which in other words mean that the device will run on the newer version of the OS.

Going by the specs, Cronus will have 5 inches Full HD IPS touch screen display and obviously it will run on the latest Window 8 GDR2 with 1 GB RAM. Cronus will be powered by quad-core processor clocked at 1.6 GHz. It is also expected to carry few features of Samsung Galaxy S4 like sensors, gesture and is likely have 16 GB of internal memory with no microSD card slot. As, per some leaks reports it is confirmed that it will have 4G LTE connectivity.

Perhaps, the Korean manufacturer shifting its focus from Android to Windows Phone 8 probably means something, but as Samsung is quite famous for Android, will users prefer to see it with Windows Phone 8 OS? Do let us know your opinions on the comment below.
