Hereâ€™s another tasty morsel.Â WP-Life claims to have info from a trusted source that Samsung is planning to pour Windows Phone 8 into the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S3 and deliver this slightly modified handset in October this year, calling it the Samsung Focus S II (presumably on AT&T).
The handset will have virtually the same specs as the Galaxy S3, including:
- Faster dual/quad core processor (depending on region)
- 4.7-inch HD display
- 12-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera
- NFC capabilities
- Dedicated camera button
- Samsung Cloud Support
- Improved Photo Studio
- LTE support
The handset will apparently also share the Galaxy S3â€™s appearance, but of course with Windows Phone buttons, branding and the dedicated camera key.
According to WP-life the handset will not be confined to AT&T, but will also show up on Verizon and Sprintâ€™s LTE networks.
With Windows Phone 8 supporting the same headline hardware as Android handsets the rumour is of course relatively realistic â€“ lets hope a picture leaks soon to confirm it.
