Samsung said to be planning a Windows Phone 8 version of Galaxy S III
Windows Phone has not been that successful until now due to the OS not being able to handle high specification of devices thus keeping away interested buyers but all this may be the thing of the past as today we are hearing that Samsung’s soon-to-be-unveiled Galaxy S III could be cloned to work on the upcoming Windows Phone 8 OS.
Yes, if rumours are to be believed, then Samsung may go on to use almost the same hardware and design of the S III in its first WP8 device which is currently being dubbed as the Samsung Focus S II.
Now you may be wondering that the Galaxy S III is until now rumoured to be arriving with the best specs and how these would be compatible with the Windows Phone OS. But as we have got to know in earlier leaks, Windows Phone 8 will go on to bring in drastic changes to the Windows Phone ecosystem and go on to support high specs in devices enabling Samsung to bring in most of Samsung Galaxy S III’s hardware onto the WP8 world.
What we all do know is that the Samsung Focus S which is currently selling in the markets is an almost copy of the Galaxy S II with a few changes here and there and running on Windows Phone OS. And now this may soon be the case with the S III being brought onto the Windows Phone 8 platform with Focus S II.
The specs that the Samsung Focus S II may arrive with could be:
- 4.7-inch HD display
- Faster dual/quad core processor (depending on region)
- 12-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera
- Dedicated camera button
- Samsung Cloud Support
- NFC capabilities
- LTE support
- Improved Photo Studio
We all know that Samsung has lately been very much successful and become the world leader in term of device shipment pushing Nokia down to the second spot because of the success of its Galaxy line of device. And with Samsung planning to use the specs as that of the Galaxy S III (almost) to make Focus S II, it will go on to make the Focus range, the ‘Galaxy’ of Windows Phones.
So will this move by Samsung actually push you to shift from the Android OS to Windows Phone? Shoot your views below.
