Samsung's first 1080p Windows Phone 8 handset could be the SM-W750V


At the moment, Nokia is the only manufacturer that’s selling Windows Phone handsets with 1080p displays. Of course, Nokia has pretty much remained the only manufacturer that sells WP devices regardless of their features. But Samsung, which leads the smartphone market thanks to Android, might prepare a new WP flagship as well: the SM-W750V.

We first heard about the SM-W750V in December, when we reported that the mysterious device had a 5-inch display. As of today, the SM-W750V is approved by the Bluetooth SIG, which seemingly confirms that what we have here is a phone - one that’s made for North America.

What’s even more interesting is that the UA profile of SM-W750V is now accessible at Samsung Mobile’s official website, allowing us to see that the handset’s screen is a 1080 x 1920 pixels one. LTE and Internet Explorer are also mentioned - so the device is indeed running Windows Phone.

To recap, Samsung SM-W750V is a Windows Phone 8 handset with a 5-inch, 1080 x 1920 pixels display and LTE connectivity, and it might be released in North America. Naturally, we can’t be certain of anything until Samsung makes an official announcement. Perhaps it will happen at MWC 2014 next month? Since it won’t reveal its Galaxy S5 Android flagship there, the company can certainly announce other high-end (albeit less important) devices at the upcoming trade fair.

What do you think, can a new 1080p WP handset from Samsung compete with Nokia's Lumias?
