Samsung’s Huron Windows Phone device to be branded as Ativ SE
Samsung is said to be working on a Windows Phone handset codenamed Huron (SM-W750V). The handset has cleared FCC, and from the leaked images, will be exclusive to Verizon. The device was rumored to be officially announced at the Mobile World Congress earlier this week, but it was not to be. According to @evleaks, the device will be branded as the Ativ SE. It isn’t clear as to when Verizon or Samsung will launch the handset.Samsung has used the Ativ name for its Windows-based offerings before, so it is feasible that the device will actually be called the Ativ SE.
As far as the hardware details go, the Samsung Ativ SE looks similar in design to last year’s Galaxy S4. It also boasts a similar feature-set, and is said to come with a 5-inch full-HD screen, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU, 2 GB RAM and LTE connectivity. If the handset were to come with the next major version of Windows Phone, it is likely that it will not be announced until May, as Microsoft is said to be considering a May rollout for Windows Phone Blue (8.1). If Verizon decides to launch the device with Windows Phone 8, the device may be announced sooner.
