With a lot of new awesome handsets coming out, such as the iPhone 5, the Galaxy Note 2, the HTC Phone 8X and the Nokia Lumia 920, its no surprise that people are eager to find out which of these phones the major carriers will be getting so that they can decide if they’ll stick with their current provider or jump ship to one that will give them their smartphone of choice.
Today, we’ve got some leaked information about some additional phones that you can obtain soon from Verizon and it looks like Windows Phone 8 fans will be plenty happy.
According to PhoneArena, they’ve gotten a list of handsets that Verizon will be including in its lineup and it appears that they’re getting all of the top-tier Windows 8 phones:
“Verizon will be giving Windows Phone another shot by launching three WP8 smartphones. The Samsung ATIV S, the Nokia Lumia 920, and the HTC Windows Phone 8X are all listed on the leaked roadmap, with November penciled as a potential release time frame.”
I’m sure you guys are already following our extensive coverage on the HTC Phone 8X and the Nokia Lumia 920 but I don’t think we’ve ever really discussed Samsung’s upcoming entry to the list of Windows Phone 8 devices. We’ll rectify that today by giving you the skinny.
The Samsung ATIV S is part of Samsung’s new line of Windows 8-powered devices. It comes with a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display at 1280 x 720 resolution, an 8 MP rear camera and a 1.9 MP shooter in the front. The processor will be a 1.5GHz Krait Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon S4 with 1 GB RAM. Storage capacity will come in 16 and 32 GB variants and is expandable for up to 32 GB more via microSD. The memory expandability may be a smart move for Samsung as that could be something that makes the Samsung ATIV S stand out from its Windows Phone 8 counterparts.
Which one of these Windows Phone 8 devices are you most excited about — the Nokia Lumia 920, the HTC Phone 8X or the Samsung ATIV S? Is this enough for you to stay loyal to Verizon?
