Sprint's Samsung Ativ S Neo and HTC 8XT will be updated to Windows Phone 8.1 "this summer"

Microsoft earlier today confirmed that current WP8 devices would be updated to the brand new Windows Phone 8.1 “in the coming months.” Of course, this doesn’t mean that all Windows Phone 8 handsets will get the update at the same time.

In any case, if you’re a Sprint customer owning a WP8 device, you should be able to get a taste of Windows Phone 8.1 “this summer.” This is a pretty vague timeframe, but that’s all that Sprint can tell us for now - according to WP Central.

As you may know, Sprint is currently offering only two Windows Phone 8 handsets: the Samsung Ativ S Neo and the HTC 8XT, both pictured above. 

Windows Phone 8.1 comes with a significant number of novelties and enhancements, including: Cortana (Microsoft’s own digital assistant), Action Center, on-screen buttons, personalized home screen backgrounds, new lockscreen designs, Internet Explorer 11, and so on.

Sprint didn't say if it's planning to release new WP 8.1 handsets. But we'll let you know as soon as we hear anything on this.

That's not exactly good for consumers to have such a lop sided ecosystem of OEMs in WP.

Sprint is a bunch of losers! Everyone has Lumias except Sprint!
