Samsung’s first Windows Phone 8.1 handset to be the ATIV Core?

Samsung’s first Windows Phone 8.1 handset to be the ATIV Core?
While Windows Phone 8.1 was officially announced by Microsoft this week, only Nokia presented new WP 8.1 hardware: the Lumia 930, Lumia 630 and Lumia 635. But other manufacturers should join the party soon. Take Samsung, for example, which is reportedly getting ready to introduce a mid-range Windows Phone 8.1 handset called ATIV Core.

According to Sam Mobile, the Samsung ATIV Core features a 4.5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, an 8MP (or 13MP) rear camera, 1GB of RAM, and a 2,100 mAh battery. 

This is supposed to be the very first Windows Phone 8.1 device from Samsung. Unfortunately, there are no images to accompany this report, so we don’t know what the alleged ATIV Core looks like (what we’re seeing above is the older Samsung ATIV S).

Earlier today, Verizon revealed the Samsung ATIV SE - another new Windows Phone handset made by the South Korean company. However, this will be released with WP 8 on board (although it will certainly be updated to WP 8.1 after that).

There is no word on exactly when Samsung intends to launch the ATIV Core, and neither on what markets will get it. But we'll let you know when we find out.
