Samsung’s Windows Phone 8-powered device, the Ativ S, seems to have been delayed once again and is expected to hit store shelves in the last week of December 2012.
The Ativ S was the first WP8 smartphone shown off at IFA 2012 and it seems the device will be the last to hit stores after the HTC Windows Phone 8X (read our review), HTC Windows Phone 8S, Nokia Lumia 920 and the Nokia Lumia 820.
Sammobile has reported that the Ativ S will ship from week 52, which is the last week of December and may be delayed as far as January 2013 for the European market. Sammobile goes on to say, “The Ativ S uses the same display as the Galaxy S III. Because the Galaxy S III is extremely hot at the moment. Samsung could have decided to move back the Ativ S for public release because of production switch in build and materials.”
The Samsung Ativ S features a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED Gorilla Glass 2 display with a 1,280x720 pixel resolution, a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Krait (MSM8960) processor, 1GB of RAM, an 8MP rear autofocus camera with LED flash and 1080p HD recording, along with a 1.9MP front camera.
The Windows Phone 8-based Samsung Ativ S will come in 16 or 32GB storage variants. Connectivity options include 3G (HSDPA, 7.2 Mbps; HSUPA, 5.76 Mbps), Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n with hotspot & DLNA functionality, Bluetooth v3.0 with A2DP, NFC, GPS with A-GPS and GLONASS, stereo FM radio with RDS, and microUSB. Weighing in at 135 grams, the Ativ S is powered by a rather large 2,300mAh battery.
Currently, Samsung has two flagship smartphones available globally – the Galaxy S III and the Note II. The Galaxy Note II has sold more than 5 million units since its launch a mere two months ago and the Galaxy S III has sold more than 30 million units since its launch. You can read the details of that story here.
