Yes, we are just a day away from getting the hot details on Nokia’s next Lumia’s (which should include one flagship), which is why we are worried about Samsung’s rumoured Huron.
@EvLeaks had recently revealed the new renders of the final device and somehow Samsung seems to be going down the Galaxy route for its latest Windows Phone handset. Earlier, rumours pointed out that this may be one of the first Windows Phone 8.1 handsets to hit the market (well, in the US at least). But this is somehow not true thanks to the latest news.
We now have the hardware specs of Samsung’s latest (and probably the only) Windows Phone handset this year. The specs include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory. This memory would be expandable via a micro SD card slot. On the front, would be a 1080p display while the back would host a 13 MP camera unit with an LED flash. As one would notice, the only difference so far, is the addition of a micro SD card slot (not forgetting the 20 MP camera). The Lumia Icon lacks it and this could be a reason for buyers to make the switch to the Samsung Ativ SE.
But the most important detail, will be the lack of Windows Phone 8.1—a big reason for buyers not to opt in for the handset. The update may come a bit later like they always do in the case of Windows Phone, but we would rather trust a Nokia when it comes to software updates. Additionally, we cannot expect too much from a Samsung camera unit, especially when one considers Nokia’s expertise in the mobile camera game. This again would be another reason to opt for a Nokia Lumia device.
With Nokia literally dominating the Windows Phone space, little needs to be said about which handsets will be getting Windows Phone 8.1 first. The handset will be a Verizon exclusive so we have no hopes of the device reaching Indian shores anytime soon. Moreover, with Samsung’s focus on Android and the Galaxy S5, we are sure that Samsung Windows Phones will never end up in India, just like in the past. Our eyes are glued to the Build 2014 stage for now.
