Samsung readies new ATIV S Neo Windows Phone

ativsneoMore busy times lay ahead for Samsung with news the phone giant is about to release a new model to the market. Among the list of features filling out the Samsung ATIV S Neo are a Qualcomm Snapdragon (Krait) dual-core chip inside ticking over at up to 1.4GHz clock speed and a basic cache of 1GB of RAM.

Inside, there’s a 4.8-inch capacitive touchscreen panel with 720 x 1280 pixels resolution. At this stage, it’s unclear which Adreno GPU core is being used in the phone without more detail on which SoC CPU is being used.

Internal storage capacity is unknown at this point but you’ll get plenty of external storage, thanks to microSD, up to 64 GB to store more files. Whatever the internal storage is, it’ll come preloaded with Microsoft Windows Phone 8. As for power, the device includes a 2000mAh Li-Ion-type battery but unfortunately, no talk or standby times were available at time of publishing.

Both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless connectivity will get a run and network coverage will be handled over 2G through its 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900MHz band support while there’ll also be HSDPA support for 3G networks.

The device delivers high-quality photos, thanks to its 8 MP (3264 x 2448 pixels) with autofocus image sensor on the back and you get a simpler 1.9 MP camera on the front.

The announcement date for this unit was back in June 2013. According to engadget, the phone will be offered by US carrier Sprint for $150 after rebate some time this northern summer.
