Samsung Announces World’s First Windows Phone 8 Smartphone, the ATIV S



This is shocking. Despite the exclusive Nokia-Microsoft deal, Samsung has become the first company to officially unveil a Windows Phone 8 smartphone. To start-off, this is a decent smartphone with specs easily better than any Windows Phone smartphone right now.

Considering the smoothness that Windows platform offers, these specs of 1.5 Ghz dual-core processor with 1 GM of internal RAM will boost the the performance needs of ATIV S users.

See for yourself:

  • Microsoft’s latest Windows Phone 8 OS installed
  • 4.8 inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels and 16 million colors
  • Multi-touch, capacitive touchscreen with Corning Gorilla Glass 2
  • Thickness: 8.7mm

  • 1.9 megapixel front-facing camera
  • Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Proximity, Compass sensors
  • Bluetooth 3.0, microUSB v2.0, NFC, Wifi-Hotspot

Nokia is expected to release its Windows Phone 8 smartphones on September 5 where it might launch a ‘Pureview Lumia’. Still, you can’t deny the fact that the ATIV S is easily among the best smartphones right now.

No words on pricing of Samsung ATIV S revealed so far. Meanwhile, check below screens of the Windows 8 Phone:



      • Maybe you are right Waqar. Maybe Windows platform needs more time to evolve. Lets see :) I have been using Android for the last 2.5 years and I have seen huge improvement in it as well. I am also waiting for the next iPhone.

  • No one is a Samsung lover or apple lover. Its about ethics and morals.

    Samsung is a good company that unfortunately is trying to reap rewards of somebody else’s hard work.

    It does not own any technology, hence by copying others; it does not invest in R&D and innovation. It is an extremely unethical organization as was told by Mr. Omar Khan (Ex Samsung-Mobile Amercia Chief) in a recent speech.

    The cost of manufacturing Galaxy S3 is $125 and ideally it should have a retail price of $200 globally after including all marketing, sales, logistics cost and huge profits. But alas it charges $600 using someone elses software and putting in a copied interface that emulates the iOS in every way.

    • Mr. Guru the iPhone build cost is $181.51 so that means they are also ripping us of!

      And if you fogetting Google and Micorosft does charge our of every Android hand sets and which Apple saves in any way.

      • — Mr. Guru the iPhone build cost is $181.51 so that means they are also ripping us of!

        What do you mean by ripping you off? No one forces you to buy an iphone. And besides, who are you to decide how much someone else should charge for a non-essential item? It’s their product, they can set whatever price they want to. And I will note that even at their high prices, people have not stopped buying their phones.

        — And if you fogetting Google and Micorosft does charge our of every Android hand sets and which Apple saves in any way.

        TOTAL BS. Show your evidence, please. How much does Samsung or HTC or Huawei give to Google for every phone they sell?

      • Qazzafi… these days the iPhone 4 is costing apple less than $150 to make as economies of scale has got the price down.

        However you forget that it invests billions in R&D, design, patent protection, litigation and many other costs that Samsung doesn’t incur.

        Pricing a Rs. 20,000 Galaxy S3 which is made of cheap plastic and someone elses technology right down to the processor (ARM Cortex) is unbelievable.

        • Maybe you need an update, Apple the one that uses Samsung chips inside its iPhone and iPad, if you Google, you will know that many of the parts within the iPhone are sourced from Samsung, you may also want to research on where the ARM Cortex comes from, let me help use this:

          And please, the trial and the judgement is pathetic and heavily biased, the same was blown away in UK and Germany, where the judges advised Apple to grow up.

          Apple is trying to use the broken American patent system to patent a rectangle and a square for God sake! its laughable and upsetting at the same time. I bet now they with patent the alphabet “I”… oh wait they already have done that, see how stupid that sounds?

          And yeah, Apple truly invented ‘Slide to Unlock’ as well, oh wait…

  • Nice phone by Samsung.
    Samsung smart phone are getting better than Nokia and Apple.

    Admin, Please correct a typo error it is no “GM” in fact “GB”
    “1.5 Ghz dual-core processor with 1 GM of internal RAM”

  • Today ministry inQalaaBi Elaan that some P.C.O number band n ab apko poc se phone karte waqt NIC card ki copy dena hogi. Google ka new phone aane wala hai jo k cost 2 cost sale hoga means around 18000 jo k iphone 5 se muqable kelye araha hai so aram se betho.
