Samsung SM-W350F seems to be a new Windows Phone 8.1 handset with WVGA display

Samsung SM-W350F seems to be a new Windows Phone 8.1 handset with WVGA display
Samsung may have not one, but two new Windows Phone 8.1 devices in the pipeline. Last week, we told you about the Samsung Ativ Core, which is supposed to be a midrange WP 8.1 handset with a 4.5-inch, 720p display. 

Today, an unannounced SM-W350F appeared in a UA Profile at Samsung’s website. Seemingly sporting a WVGA (480 x 800) display, the SM-W350F comes with Internet Explorer 11 on board - and we already know that IE 11 is one of the new features included in Windows Phone 8.1.

So, this Samsung SM-W350F appears to be a low-end WP 8.1 handset - possibly one that’s going to compete with Nokia’s Lumia 630 and Lumia 635.

Unfortunately, at the moment there are no photos to show the Samsung SM-W350F (what you're seeing above is a generic Windows Phone 8.1 image). Moreover, there is no word on when Samsung may want to announce the handset, and neither on where it’s going to launch it. Anyway, since Nokia’s Lumia 630 and 635 will both be sold for under $200, we’re thinking that the Samsung SM-W350F should also be pretty cheap. We’ll bring more on this as soon as new details arrive.

Now with 0 licensing fees Samsung could just take their Android hardware and put WP8.1 on it. Ativ Note anyone?

If true, this is great for the WP ecosystem. The more OEM's, the merrier. Would love to see Samsung compete with Nokia in WP!

I hope it will have a better design than crappy low-end Galaxy.

Watch them dominate wp now. Nokia should have begged Microsoft to keep those licensing fees, now it's fair and square and we've already witness what Samsung has done in such conditions.

I hope you are right! I want some competition in the Windows Phone Market. Especially since we can't get the 930 on AT&T. Yeah I'm still bitter! Off topic but now I'm double bitter since the Undertaker's Streak went to Brock Lesnar!! AHH!! Hulk Smash!!

If Sammy now that windows is free, starts to produce low end sub 200 phones for windows, with flash, sd support, etc. They will have a hit.

yes I meant flash photography not flash. Though if I was MS I would be throwing money at Flash to buy the mobile code so it could.

Since its WVGA. It won't sell well.

If it is priced right and available on multiple carriers, it will sell well. Not everyone cares about ppi.

I'm all here for more competition and sales. Avid Nokia fan but anything to spread the WP love.
