Rumor: Samsung ATIV S and HTC “Tiara” Landing on Sprint in the Summer

Although it’s one of the leading US wireless carriers (the third one, to be precise,) Sprint has refused to take part at Windows Phone 8’s rise to glory. But the network can’t look the other way anymore and it’s apparently planning to sell not one, but two WP8 devices come the summertime.

And when Sprint embarks on a new business venture, it does so with a bang, as both phones rumored to land on the carrier are not yet available on any other US networks. Chances are they won’t be in June either, which would put Sprint in a pretty comfortable position in it’s new niche.

The first of the two is the oft-delayed Samsung ATIV S, only available in parts of Europe for now even if we would have all expected it to become a global device by the end of 2012. The 4.8-incher sports a 720p display, a dual-core 1.5 GHz CPU, 1 GB of RAM and an 8 MP rear-facing camera, being one of the top Windows Phone 8 devices around.

As for the other one, that’s a little bit of a mystery, although we know a thing or two about it. Codenamed “Tiara,” this should be an upper HTC mid-ranger with on-board Windows Phone 8 GDR2, a 4.3-inch WVGA screen and a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor.
