Samsung Ativ S leaks – high-end WP8 smartphone with HD display and dual-core processor
Remember the couple of new trademarks that Samsung was discovered to have registered not long ago? Yeah, it turns out they really are meant for the company's new lineup of Windows-based hardware. In fact, the smartphone that you see in the picture is said to be the Samsung Ativ S, which will run Windows Phone 8 and look quite a lot like the Galaxy S III flagship.

According to the source of this leak, we are dealing with a high-end WP8 handset powered by a 1.5GHz processor and flaunting a huge, 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display. The main camera is allegedly of 8 megapixels, and a 1.9MP front-facing shooter resides above its screen. Not bad, Samsung, not bad.

Now, you are probably wondering whether the Samsung Ativ S will be unveiled officially at today's Unpacked event, yet sadly, we aren't really sure. Something tells us that Nokia, being Microsoft's devoted partner, must have been given the privilege to announce Windows Phone 8 smartphones before any other manufacturer, yet on the other hand, an announcement of the Ativ S tonight is not out of the question at all. Oh well, guess we'll know more on the matter later tonight. The Samsung Unpacked event kicks off in minutes, so stay tuned for our coverage!
