Another image of the rumored 2014 Samsung Windows Phone 8.1 handset for Verizon has surfaced online. In this latest photo leak of the Samsung ATIV SE, we get a look at its back camera, speaker and battery door cover.
Over the weekend, a press render of the phone showed up on Twitter, “Samsung ATIV SE, for Verizon, 2014,” notorious leaker @evleaks tweeted. As TechShout reports (March 17), the new image leak of the Windows Phone 8.1 OS sporting phone comes ahead of the mobile operating system’s official launch, expected to arrive next month.
Previous reports concerning the Verizon branded Samsung ATIV SE’s first image leak reference the phone’s codename, “Huron” (model number SM-W750V). We noted its design similarities to Samsung’s first Windows Phone 8 device, the ATIV S.
What rumors are saying so far about the specs of the upcoming Verizon Windows Phone 8.1 is that it features a 5-inch display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920. According to PhoneArena, the ATIV SE has a pixel density of 441 ppi and runs on a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor alongside 2GB of RAM.
Other than the existence of a built-in LED flash, not much is known about the ATIV SE’s camera features. Its predecessors, the ATIV S and ATIV S Neo both featured 8-megapixel main shooters, with 1.9 and 1.2-megapixel front cameras, respectively. The new Windows Phone 8.1 smartphone could possibly arrive with 16GB of storage, a microSD slot and a Super AMOLED display as found on many Samsung devices.
The press render leak may be a hint that the ATIV SE could land on Verizon’s 4G LTE network within the coming weeks. Microsoft is expected to reveal details about the new Windows Phone 8.1 OS at its upcoming Build conference, which kicks off on April 2.
