For the longest time, Nokia has been the leader in Windows Phone. Last quarter alone they shipped 7.1 million handsets.
In all this, Samsung and HTC have been battling for second place but so far Samsung have emerged winner. Last quarter Samsung shipped 1 million Windows Phone devices, HTC shipped just 400,000. Even when Samsung isn’t trying they still somehow manage to sell a lot of phones.
It seems Samsung is planning to maintain its winning streak courtesy of its new device, SGH-I187 that is rumored to be in the pipelines.
The phone sports a 720p display, dual-core processor, and appears to not run GDR3. It’s also expected that the phone will run on Windows Phone 8.0.
We expect the successor to the ATIV S to be more like a Galaxy S4, which makes this device a likely successor to the ATIV Odyssey.
While it is not unlikely that this device could be unveiled on September 4th at IFA, this device is set to compete-albeit disastrously-with the rumored HTC and Nokia flagships coming later this year with vastly superior specs.
