Following the image leak of a Windows Phone 8.1 device from Samsung on Twitter, the latest information has been uncovered for the same. The same device which was earlier leaked by the sensational Twitter user @evleaks has now evidently appeared on the GFX benchmark database. The device which comes with a model number SM-W750V is also known by its codename "Huron."
However, the device is Verizon bound as of now, because the leaked image of the device from @evleaks, which rarely turns out to be false, comes with the same career branding. However, in terms of Windows Phone, the South Korean Smartphone manufacturer is still at a nascent phase, looking at its failed record of Ativ S smartphone, also a Windows Phone 8 device. Moreover, the tech community has witnessed several leaks pertaining to the company's Windows Phone smartphone previously.
Design-wise, the leaked Windows Phone 8.1 running SM-W750V smartphone from Samsung looks pretty much like the Galaxy S4 device but the only difference is the home button which is a little thicker in the latter one where you can also see Windows' logo.
According to the GFX benchmark details, the device will come with a 5-inch display with 720 x 1280p. But most reports suggest that it would come with a Full HD resolution of 1080p. The report from SamMobile says that the screen resolution is incorrectly listed as 720 x 1280.
The site says that sometimes in the case for Full HD devices, like the Lumia 1520, it would actually be better if the display was a 720p instead of 1080p. Because the processor and graphics chip sometimes don't lift as many pixels too easily even on a lightweight OS like Windows Phone.
The smartphone would also be powered by a quad-core processor (Snapdragon 800) and Adreno 305 GPU. Obviously as the leak suggests, it will run on Windows Phone 8.1 operating system.
The device has not received any officially confirmation as of now, but yes, one can't avoid but assume that it will be launched at the Mobile World Congress 2014 later this month.
