We posted earlier that Samsung was intending to release Windows Phone 8 handsets at the end of the year, but that it was unclear whether Samsung would release further Windows Phone 7.5 handsets this year.
Samsung has previously been rumoured to be working on the release of a â€œwonderfulâ€ Windows Phone with an original design in Europe to make up for the lack of a high end handset such as the Samsung Focus S in Europe.
This handset may still be on the way, with Samsungâ€™s Kristof Vanhuffel telling Datanews.knack.be that â€œâ€¦later this year there is a new device with Windows Phone and we will certainly also later release devices with Windows Phone 8 when available. "
The phrasing appears to suggest a Windows Phone 7 handset followed by Windows Phone 8 handsets when the OS launches.
I guess we can keep on hoping for something â€œwonderfulâ€ after all.
Thanks Christophe for the tip.
