Generally speaking, owners of Windows 8 devices such as Nokia Lumia 900 are not as enthusiastic about upcoming Windows 8 phones as Android users, in fact much less. The immense enthusiasm that is seen upon each new release of iOS or next version of Android is virtually non-existent when it comes to Windows devices. However, while many Windows users might not be satisfied with the performance of their device or the operating system that runs on it, there are many who would still be looking forward to any improvement in this regard.
A glimpse of hope for Windows Phone 8 users might be the possible launch of a Windows 8 based phone from Samsung. Various rumors and speculations in this regard exist over the Internet, although so far no official confirmation has been given by Samsung.
The only evidence that exists so far regarding a possible release of a Windows 8 phone from Samsung is a private XML file indicating such a development. However, no images or videos indicating any such development exist as yet.
The device in question, that many people speculate would be a Windows 8 device, bears a code name of SGH-i687, whose XML file indicates that it would come with support for Internet Explorer 10. Since this happens to be the standard web browser that would be included in Windows 8 based phone, it seems that Samsung is indeed working in this direction. Another confirmation in this regard happens to be the screen resolution of 800 by 400 pixels of this new device, a resolution that is a sort of standard for Windows phones.
All these factors do provide hints that Samsung might be gearing up to release the next model of its previous Windows based phone, Focus 2. Focus 2 was unable to create much buzz in the market and was just about the mark. However, Samsung has not given out any official information regarding the release date or identity of the device so far. If anyone is interested in a windows 8 phone from Samsung in the first place, he would probably have to wait for a few more weeks till some official confirmation or some leaked images or videos over the Internet take place.
