Unknown low-end Samsung Windows Phone device discovered (SM-W350F)
Samsung seems to be working on multiple new Windows Phone devices for release in the next few months. We recently revealed that the mid-range ATIV Core is under development at Samsung as the first Windows Phone 8.1 device, and now, a low-end Windows Phone handset, the SM-W350F) has reared its face. The SM-W350F was shipped to India for testing over the weekend, and now it has shown up on Samsung’s own website. The user agent profile (UAProf) shows the device as having a WVGA (800×480) screen, and it should run Windows Phone 8.1 out of the box given the fact it’s running Internet Explorer version 11, which debuts on the latest version of the OS.
It’s interesting to see Samsung taking such an interest in Windows Phone, considering it will soon have to start focusing on selling handsets that run its upcoming OS Tizen. But it’s a good move for consumers, who will have more choice of operating systems to pick from – a feature-packed one like Android, and a more simplistic one in Windows Phone.
