Nokia currently controls about 90 percent of the Windows Phone market, but that doesn’t mean Samsung is out of the race. The South Korean company—which is actually in third place behind HTC when it comes to Windows Phone 8 market share—appears to be developing a new Windows device with the model number SM-W750V, which was recently shipped to two facilities in India for testing and development.

Samsung’s new smartphone appears to run the latest version of Windows Phone 8, which supports quad-core processors and 5-inch displays. Based on the device’s listed build price of 31,967 and 33,245 Indian Rupees (a little over $500) we’re probably looking at a flagship phone rather than an entry-level handset.

Samsung’s ATIV line of Windows devices has mostly focused on tablets and 2-in-1 hybrids. The South Korean company hasn’t put much effort into its Windows Phone line in the past, but with the latest GDR3 update to Microsoft’s mobile OS and the release of Nokia’s first phablet, Samsung may be ready to take another stab at the growing platform.
