It seems Samsung is not going to give up on the Windows Phone. Although the company has monetized its devices via Android platform, it is still holding its one percent to the growing Windows Phone platform.
Samsung is thus reportedly said to be working on a new 5-inch-display Smartphone powered by Windows Phone OS. The device is said to be targeted to launch in India. Reportedly, the leaked imported data documents suggests that the company has already shipped 25 SM-W750V Smartphones to India for R&D (Research & Development) purposes back in November.
Apparently, the device is said to be priced at Rs 31,967 (nearly US$513) per unit, according to Zauba, a website that tracks down all imported and exported devices in India.
There are no details pertaining to the specs of the device as of now. However, since the Windows Phone from Nokia is going to come with the Snapdragon 800 SoC, thus the same CPU could make it up to the Samsung's news Windows Phone. Additionally, we could also expect 2GB of RAM and a full HD 1080p display.
However, the company has not officially spoken about the device as of now. Samsung has been exploring on the smartphone business like no other smartphone manufacturers. The South Korean giant has already announced the UHD handset for the upcoming year and the company has also filed a patent application for the first of its kind 'transparent display'. On top of that the company also launched its latest Chromebook in the Indian market just today.
