Samsung working on next gen Windows Phone – The Galaxy W

The big three giants of Mobile OS industry, Google, Apple and Microsoft (sorry BlackBerry) are working hard to dominate the market and putting everything through to win this never ending war. Apple has recently showed off tidbits of iOS 6 and iPhone 5 features in WWDC 2012 today and Google will unveil details of next version of Android later month in its Google I/O event.

Don’t worry; Microsoft is also having lots of surprises coming for its Windows Phone users this month.

Microsoft is all set to preview the Windows Phone 8 Apollo on June 20th at Windows Phone Summit. As far as we know, the OS has been completely rewritten, improving on many of the strict hardware restrictions Microsoft imposed on early Windows Phones. Windows Phone 8 could include support for higher screen resolutions, dual-core and possibly quad-core processors, user-expandable memory and NFC. Additionally, Skype may be integrated into the OS, and Windows Phone 8 could bring about the demise of Microsoft’s Zune software with launch of Xbox Music scheduled later this year.

And according to a latest rumor from European Windows Phone site, claims that Samsung is testing out a Windows version of its popular Galaxy series of smartphones. The Windows version of this Galaxy series smartphone is rumored to be called the Samsung Galaxy W.

Unfortunately, the leak does not have any alleged images or device specs details. The proof comes from a test on WP Bench, an app that runs benchmarks on Windows Phones. A leaked test shows a device called “Samsung Galaxy W” being tested with it running on Windows Phone OS 7.10.8779 (a specific build number of Windows Phone 7.5).

The test assures that a Galaxy Series Windows Phone is soon going to be launched in the market. But we are sure that Samsung will wait until Microsoft will complete working on Windows Phone 8 before launching this phone in market. We can expect it as the first Windows Phone 8 powered smartphone from Samsung.

The Galaxy brand name of Samsung is enough itself to gain the trust and interest of users all over the market and a Windows Phone powered Galaxy series smartphone will surely gain an awesome popularity in the market.

Samsung has recently launched the Samsung Focus 2 Windows Phone in US. The 3.7” Screen, 4G/LTE Phone is now available on contract basis for customers.

Here is what we are expecting in Samsung Galaxy W Windows Phone:

The phone may receive a build and feel of Samsung Galaxy SII with a more powerful battery, an 8 Megapixels primary camera just like of Samsung Galaxy SIII, 2 Megapixels secondary camera as Windows Phone 8 will come with native Skype integration, 4.3” Super Amoled HD Screen with higher resolution, 16 GB internal memory with external SD card support for expendable memory and a powerful dual core processor.

If a phone like our expectation is right now in making then Windows Phone will surely give a strong hit to its competitors.

We are keeping Samsung Galaxy W in complete rumor factory. We will keep you posted about the next gen Windows Phone from Samsung.
