New Samsung based Windows Phone 8 (SM-W750V) flagship coming in 2014?

New Samsung based Windows Phone 8 (SM-W750V) flagship coming in 2014?
As we told you the other day, Zauba is a logistics site that keeps track of imports and exports into India. Quite often, Samsung imports phones into the country for testing, and the devices end up on the Zauba site. Just last weekend, we spotted the SM-N7505 which could be a Galaxy Note device with a 5.5 to 5.7 inch screen.

Now, a new device labeled the SM-W750V with a 5 inch screen has been sent by Korean based Samsung into India for testing and evaluation. Information about the phone is scarce but according to a published report out of Japan, this is a Windows Phone 8 model using a single SIM card. The report theorizes that the "V" at the end of the model number means that the device is heading to Verizon.

Verizon is expected to have an exclusive on the unannounced Nokia Lumia 929. This will be a 5 inch model with specs rivaling those of any high-end Android phone. Perhaps Samsung will be taking advantage of the GDR3 update to come with an high-end Windows Phone model of its own.

Samsung has imported 27 units of the phone into India and has listed the value of each unit as roughly 33,000 Indian Rupees ($536 USD).

This could be a load of BS cause Samsung may be able to win the Android OS easily but not WP and as much as I'd like to see any other OEM take Nokia off that WP Lazy-Boy there's no way it'll happen. But if they decide to try then please release it to all major carriers so I can finally get a good WP Device on T-Mobile unlike Nokia who only releases POS Devices to T-Mobile,

Lumia 925 isn't a POS device. It's just outdated now, but is an otherwise solid phone.

How is the 925 oudated❔ Dual core, 1gb ram, 4.5" 768p screen, aluminum unibiody, GDR3❔ and it's barely been out 6 months.. Heck.. AT&T just got it less than 3 months ago.. That's one of the best phones on the market..

It may be true Ol Samy does have decent WP's out now. & being that they are getting hammered by Microsoft & Apple on Android they really do need an alternate stratagey. Samsung can take full advantaage of GDR3 with their hardware. & Leave T-Mobile no carrier is that special

You sir should be blaming tmob not nokia. It takes two bud.. also IF other oems werent lazy they woyldnt need to kick nokia off because they would be beside them in WP8 land.

why do you blame Nokia, Tmobile is the one who do not want Nokia phones http://www.phonearena.com/news/T-Mobile-to-pass-on-Nokias-newest-models_id49011

925 is a great device, the camera is still a force to be reconded with and the dual led flash is great. It is almost 5in, the screen is nice and wide (unlike the 8x). Office runs great. Mine has GDR3 on it, and all the new nokia photo apps like refocus. Outdated? A little, but against the s3 and s4, it does just fine imo that is. I do wish tmobile would get the 1020 1520 or the 2520 but it seems like a no for now

This is all carrier relater "laziness". ATT has the most and best WP devices. Sprint only has 2 devises and they are both junky.

quality, working with device exchange daily, these are my least exchanged devices bar none. Sure market penetration is lower, but it is far better than me having to send out a 4th s3 in a year because of keys, software lockups, screens, etc etc....

Indian government sands IT department students in america to study there and after finishing university they must return to India and continue working there. am i right?

Indian government does not send students to america to study. They go by themselves to america by paying all their tution fees. With their merit they end up getting good paying jobs. After all, India has more honors students than america has students.

It has happened before with the samsung ativ. We all know samsung and droid while great friends are also enemies as Motorola is now the refocus of google ever since the buyout of motorola and samsung. Samsung puts great effort into their own software to run ontop of the droid experience that is unique to them. They will soon move away from Droid since they already bought old software patents, and still support other devices. But the droid/sammy relation is not the soundest. After all it was samsung that has put droid where they are at, not the other way around, imo that is.
