Samsung's SM-W750V "Huron" Windows Phone handset hits the FCC, Verizon LTE confirmed

The unannounced Samsung SM-W750V, codenamed Huron, made an appearance at the FCC today, this allowing us to confirm that the handset supports Verizon’s LTE bands (4 and 13). Thus, the largest US mobile carrier might indeed launch the phone sometime soon.

Sadly, the FCC doesn’t tell us much else about the new smartphone. But we did notice that it’s got NFC, Bluetooth, dual-band Wi-Fi, and global 3G connectivity.

Earlier this week, @evleaks revealed that the SM-W750V is a Windows Phone handset that looks a lot like the Android-based Galaxy S4. We’re expecting the SM-W750V to have S4-like features, including a 5-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, 13MP rear camera, quad-core Snapdragon processor, and 2GB of RAM.

Verizon’s current Windows Phone line-up isn’t exactly exciting, only the Nokia Lumia 928 being close to what you’d call a high-end device. So the new Samsung SM-W750V Huron will likely be well-received by Windows Phone fans who happen to be Verizon customers.

As a reminder, Verizon should also launch the 20MP Nokia Lumia Icon 929 in the near future - this will be another 5-inch 1080p Windows Phone handset. We're thinking that both new WP devices could be offered for a similar price, possibly less than $200 on contract. We'll let you know when more details about this are available.
