There’s word spreading all over the internet about Samsung working on a Windows Phone handset destined for Verizon. Well, the handset was spotted here and there in the past few days, but there was no solid proof if it existed or not.
The well-known @evleaks did mention as well that the handset codenamed Huron with a model number SM-750V is really a Windows Phone handset, which is expected to hit Verizon in the coming weeks. Now, @evleaks has posted a press render of the alleged Samsung Huron, something he’s very good at, showing a handset which looks quite similar to the Samsung Galaxy S4, but with a Windows icon on the home button.
The details about the handset are scarce, but the notorious leaker mentioned it’s running Windows Phone 8.1 as its operating system. In terms of hardware, it’s rumored to come with a quad-core Snapdragon processor under the hood and 4.3-inch screen.
Microsoft is expected to showcase Windows Phone 8.1 at the annual Build 2014 conference which will take place in April later this year. It may launch during that time, or may see the light of day later this month at the Mobile World Congress.
Let’s wait for Samsung to make things official, and take this with a little bit of speculation. We’ll update you if anything else pops up.
