Samsung ATIV S for Australia in Feb?
blog It’s been three months since we previewed Samsung’s new top of the line Windows Phone 8 smartphone, but we haven’t heard a peep from the South Korean conglomerate since then about an Australian launch. Surprising, considering that both Nokia and HTC have already launched their flagship Windows Phone 8 devices locally, and very tasty they are indeed. However, yesterday local Windows Phone enthusiast blog Windows Phone DownUnder came up with some news about the ATIV S. The site reports (we recommend you click here for the full article):
“WPDU can confirm that the handset will be released in a couple of weeks – slated for outright sale at Allphones in mid-February, for the outright price of $668.”
Overall, the ATIV S looks to be pretty similar specs-wise to the HTC Windows Phone 8X and the Nokia Lumia 920, both excellent handsets, and we expect this model to have solid build quality as is normal with Samsung. However, one question remains. In our October preview of the device, we wrote: “One of the key questions for the ATIV S which Samsung has not yet answered is whether the smartphone will come with 4G speeds in Australia. We hope so, and there is reason to suspect that it will, given that Samsung has just launched a 4G version of the Galaxy S III in Australia, but we just don’t know yet. If the ATIV S doesn’t support 4G in Australia when it launches locally, we will be quite disappointed.” Hopefully we’ll get some answers on this front in the next few weeks.
