Samsung ATIV Core could be the company’s first Windows Phone 8.1 handset

With the launch of the new Windows Phone 8.1, Nokia, being the largest shareholder of the platform, immediately launched three new smartphones – the Lumia 930, the Lumia 630 and the Lumia 635. Now seems like Samsung is joining the race soon.


According to sources, Samsung is all set to launch its first Windows Phone 8.1 powered handset, which would apparently be called the Samsung ATIV Core. While there are no details about the specs available, the device would feature a 4.5 inch display with 720p resolution with 1 GB of RAM on-board. Also expected is an 8 MP or 13 MP rear facing camera.

Knowing Samsung ATIV Core could look quite similar to the Samsung ATIV SE (seen in picture) that went up for pre-booking earlier today. While the ATIV SE is launched running Windows Phone 8, it would soon be updated to Windows Phone 8.1. As of now there is no mention of the launch timeframe of the device, but we can expect it to be released globally.
