Samsung “Huron” image leaks, Verizon bound Windows Phone

There is an old saying, “When it rains, it pours.” Same could be said about technology leaks, “When it leaks, info flows.” In less than 24 hours, the ever reliable @evleaks shared about the Samsung SM-W750V Windows Phone for Verizon, looking like a Galaxy S.

Shortly thereafter, some benchmark data was posted about the device, revealing a quad-core Snapdragon CPU and Adreno 305 GPU to manage things for the user.

Looking at the black and white press render of this device, just leaked by the aforementioned @evleaks, it does look a little bit like a Galaxy S from the days of yore. Added to the description was, “Windows Phone 8.1-powered.” That is a strong indicator that we may see this device make an appearance with the announcement of Windows Phone 8.1 which should see some exposure at Microsoft’s Build 2014 conference.

With “Huron,” there are no visual surprises at all. It is instantly recognizable as a Samsung device with a home button, power/lock key on the right and volume rocker on the left. The front camera and sensors line right up too.

How about it Windows Phone fans? Will this new Samsung grab your attention?

Like many of you WP users said - it doesn't need horsepower, right?

It doesn't. But most people while buying a smartphone are only interested in the specs for the price they are paying. They don't care if the OS needs or doesn't such specs. Hence, Samsung should produce a WP with a 1080p display and a quad core CPU.

Only one phone in the WP8 world has modern specs. One.

By the time this comes out there will be others.

Yet it perform just as smooth as the 1520 when it comes to navigating around the OS. In gaming (for the games that are available), that's a different story.

Again you missed the point.. I'm not going back over it again..

I don't know. I've always identified WP with Nokia. WP on a Samsung (or any other OEM) feels awkward.
