Verizon's Windows Phone-based Samsung SM-W750V reportedly resembles a Galaxy S
We’ve been hearing about the Samsung SM-W750V a lot lately. This is supposed to be a brand new Windows Phone 8 handset with a 1080 x 1920 pixels display (possibly measuring 5 inches) and LTE connectivity.

The latest details about the SM-W750V come from well-informed @evleaks, and suggest that the smartphone is codenamed Huron, looking “very similar to a late model Galaxy S.” Does this mean it resembles the Android-based Galaxy S4? Probably - but we can’t know for sure yet.

There is still no word on when Verizon is planning to announce the Samsung SM-W750V. The largest US mobile carrier is already selling a Samsung-made Windows Phone 8 handset: the Ativ Odyssey. This, however, is a rather low-end offering, and it’s being sold for $0.99 on contract.

As previously reported, another 1080p Windows Phone 8 device that could be introduced by Verizon in the near future is the Nokia Lumia 929 Icon. Maybe the carrier will announce both new handset at the same time? We’ll see.

If Samsung would put little more effort to them, they would be very good rivals for Nokia. Ativ S was OK, but not 100% what Samsung could do.

You can't compare Samsung with Nokia.

Tired, tired TIRED of carrier exclusives. For low end devices, no sweat. But if this ends up being a serious WP Hero from Samsung at 5", that gives Big Red 2 rumored phones (with the Lumia Icon) that answer to near perfect devices for me. And I sit on AT&T. Meanwhile, there are those on T-Mo and Verizon who would love a Lumia 1520, or better yet the L1020. Heck, Sprint users might just like a Nokia of any kind. Annoying.

Here we go again folks one good thing about Samsung is they roll out a high end Windows smart phones and a lower cost Windows smart phone. They may not sell as many of them as NOKIA does but they must sell enough of them to keep making them. the nice thing about Windows smart phones is now Microsoft can concentrate on giving Windows smart phones great soft ware so their smart phones rival their competitions
