Samsung ATIV S

Description

The Samsung ATIV S is the first officially announced smartphone powered by Windows Phone 8. It is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, and delivering all the eye-candy is its huge, 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display. On its back you will find an 8-megapixel camera with auto-focus and LED flash, while a 1.9-megapixel front-facing shooter makes video chats over Skype or other VoIP clients possible. Furthermore, there is a microSD card slot for expanding the smartphone's 16 or 32GB on-board storage, and NFC for things like content sharing or mobile payments. Getting online is possible via the smartphone's 42Mbps HSPA+ radio. The 2,300mAh battery should pack enough juice to get you through the day.

This device is also known as Samsung I8750
