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?

Great for the wonderful WP platform... It would be great if HTC, and Sony, especially Sony, made some really good WP devices to challenge the Lumia line.. Thanks to all those who continuously support the WP platform by consistently commenting on every WP related article, whether good or bad.. Your help has kept WP in the spotlight, and made companies like Samsung, keep believing in WP.. Thanks to the WP fans, and hatters, because it's because of you that I have this beautiful 1520 in my hands today.. Everyone, keep up the good work❕

Well, thank you. I am quite confident in myself. But, it's you who needs thanking today.. It's WP supporters like you, and your buddies who line up, and boy did y'all really line up today, to comment on every WP related article more than you do for any other platform just to show everyone what platform is the most exiting right now.. WP wouldn't be where it is today without your input, so I'll speak for all WP fans here on PA and say thanks.. See you on the next WP related article.. We're all in this together because we all love WP.

Great input.. You're on time just as expected.. Your love for the WP platform has helped the most.. I don't think anyone has dedicated as much time as you have giving a much feedback about the platform as you have.. We can always count on you to boost the WP platform by making sure its articles are full of comments.. Your interest in the WP platform is obviously huge, and you show it by your consistent support for the platform.. Thank you once again.. I have this 1520 because dedicated fans like you.. Keep showing companies like Samsung that WP is a real valuable option by the attention that you give it everyday.. Keep up the good work❕

"Thanks to all those who continuously support the WP platform..." Steve Ballmer couldn't have said it better. I hope they are paying you more than him.

I would certainly be willing to give a Samsung WP another look. Loved my Focus S, and my Wife has the Note 1 and it is by far her favorite phone ever. I was unimpressed with the ATIV Neo, but only when compared to what Nokia has to offer, not so much that it is a "bad" device. I like that WP has Sammy still kicking around. Even if Samsung sees this as a "hobbie" OS, a top end Samsung could offer WP users something different.

Exactly. I totally agree.. Although I love Nokia Lumia WP devices it is a bit unsettling thinking that it's my only choice.. I want strong options from Sony, Samsung, HTC, and LG.. That's what I think the platform needs to compete.

The only reason for this phone to exist is to get their annual discount on android patent payments. That's it. WP is a failure for everyone but Nokia.

Either ways, Lumia line will always be like Nexus or Moto devices for WP Platform. Pure WP experience without any clutters :)

Aren't all WP8 devices running pure WP8?

Go on, Samsung, I'm waiting! I'd like to replace my beloved ATIV S with new flagship device this year.
