Alongside the dozens of new Android smartphones and tablets it releases this year, Samsung is expected to take another stab at Windows Phone in 2014. A mysterious new device first leaked last month with the model number SM-W750V, and now we’re learning a bit more about it thanks to Twitter tipster @evleaks.
Samsung SM-W750V will be a Windows Phone on Verizon. Codenamed Huron, it looks very similar to a late model Galaxy S.

Samsung’s SM-W750V—or the Huron as the company is apparently calling it internally—allegedly features a similar design to the company’s popular line of Android smartphones, meaning big screens and lots of plastic. Based on previous leaks, the device is expected to sport a 5-inch 1080p display and run the latest version of Windows Phone 8.
There’s no word on when the Samsung Huron will hit the market, though it’s clearly been in development for a while now. The device was first spotted on its way to India for evaluation back in December, meaning it may be ready to launch in the very near future. With Mobile World Congress just a few weeks away Samsung could use the Barcelona expo to unveil its new Windows Phone, though there’s no guarantee until the company makes an official announcement.
