South Korean mobile phone maker Samsung seems set to bring some pretty appealing smartphones to the market during the ongoing year, and the new device from the company spotted with Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 platform on board is among them.We already knew that the leading handset vendor is set to bring to shelves a series of devices based on the new mobile platform from Microsoft, but little was known on the actual phones.
It seems that the newly leaked Samsung GT-i8700 would be one of the handsets set to bring Windows Phone 7 to the market in the near future, and that, by the looks of it, it should be one of the nicest such phones, if not the nicest.
According to some of the latest news on this, the device might land on the market with a touchscreen display of around 4 inches in size.
Moreover, the specs list is said to include around 8 GB of internal storage, as well as a photo snapper on the back with LED flash, tough of unknown resolution.
Chances are that this is the same Windows Phone 7 device from Samsung that emerged into the wild not too long ago, and that it won't sport a physical QWERTY when released on the market.
Unfortunately, no other specifications on this device made it into the wild for the time being, though chances are that they would emerge soon.
Some of the latest reports on Microsoft and its new OS flavor suggested that October 11 might be the lucky day for enthusiasts, and the newly spotted Samsung device might make an official appearance on the market around that date.
However, this is only speculation for the time being, and we'll have to wait for more info on this to emerge before we can mark a date in the calendar.
In the meantime, take a look at the two photos with the Windows Phone 7-based Samsung GT-i8700 that emerged into the wild via Gizmodo.
