Samsung may soon launch a new Windows Phone device, UnwiredView is reporting. According to their findings which include the site of Bluetooth SIG and an Indian import-export tracking website, the Korean giant will return to the Windows Phone market with a high-end model, one that rocks a 5-inch full HD screen and LTE connectivity support.
Marked as SM-W750V, it may be heading to Verizon Wireless (the “V” part could suggest something of that sorts) though we expect to see it in this form or another released all around the world.
Microsoft needs more companies in its mobile eco-system and has reportedly dedicated a ton of cash to support other (than Nokia) vendors. Of all the cash the Redmond giant will invest for this cause, the biggest chunk ($1.2 billion?) will go to Samsung, the world’s largest phone maker. Other companies that will benefit from Microsoft’s scheme include Huawei and Sony, both of which are set to launch Windows Phones later in the year.
All said, we expect to see a number of smartphones running Microsoft’s mobile platform at this year’s Mobile World Congress. Stay tuned as we bring you more…
