Samsung will not be left behind even in OS, it clearly wants to take over the mobile world; as of now Verizon and Samsung are now working on the Samsung Ativ SE Samsung and is already working on a model that will support the new Windows Phone software.
What is thought to be called the Ativ Core will be Samsung’s first smartphone to support the WP 8.1 software update.
Rumor has it that the phone is expected to come with a 4.5-inch 720p HD touchscreen, either an 8 or 13 megapixel camera, 1 GB of RAM, and a 2,100 mAh battery.
That places it fairly square in the mid-range of smartphone specifications, and matches Microsoft’s own desire to see its software deployed in cheaper models in order to expand the product range.
The first WP 8.1 based Nokia handsets are expected in May, which may be the same for the first Samsung model as well.
