Press renders. Leaks. If it were not for these this fine duo, we would never have found out just how serious Verizon is when it comes to the Windows Phone platform.
As it stands, fans of Microsoft’s mobile operating system, at least in the United States, that prefer the services Verizon provides, have another quality handset coming their way. A recently leaked press render shows the Samsung ATIV SE smartphone.
However, the retail name of this device stays horrendous, as previously feared.
And while the image does not provide too many pointers on the hardware specifications of this upcoming handsets, it does show that the Samsung ATIV SE will be released through Verizon Wireless and will come packed with 4G LTE support.
The main camera, it appears, can make use of LED flash, and while the body has a metallic design to it, the rear panel looks to be made of plastic — this is not exactly a high-end handset, after all. Expected.
In terms of screen size, it seems a 5 inch display is a lock at this point in time.
But the good news here is that Verizon is now actively releasing Windows Phone handsets, and with Windows Phone 8.1 being right around the corner, this could potentially be one of the first smartphones powered by the latest version of Microsoft’s mobile OS.
