Samsung is prepping to launch a new Windows Phone that borrows a lot of the design elements from its Galaxy S4 handset. A picture of the device was recently leaked by @evleaks with a Windows Phone logo on the home button. It looks super similar to the company’s range of Galaxy devices, though oddly we can’t see a dedicated camera button in this render, a staple of Windows Phone devices.

The device—codenamed Huron and sporting the model number SM-W750V—is headed to at least Verizon, according to the logo on the front. We don’t see any capacitive buttons on the phone, which means that’s either a new software tweak inside of Window Phone 8.1, which the device allegedly runs, or they’re just not activated in this photo and sit to the left and right of the home button.

Samsung’s upcoming Windows Phone device is expected to sport a large 5-inch 1080p display, making it the second 1080p Windows Phone to hit the market after the Lumia 1520 (unless there are others coming down the pipeline, too). Unfortunately, we don’t know about any other specs just yet.. There’s no word on when it will hit the market, though we may see the new handset unveiled later this month at the company’s recently announced Unpacked event at Mobile World Congress 2014.
