Samsung Huron

Look here. This just might be the first smartphone running Windows Phone 8.1. The leak comes from @evleaks and is of the Samsung SM-W750V, which is also known as the Huron. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen the SM-W750V, but it is the first time we’ve seen a render. Details on the device below.

Notice the capacitive back button and search button? Right, they’re not there. All we see is a dedicated hardware button for the Start screen. Not surprising considering nearly two months ago we saw a screenshot of Windows Phone 8.1 with on-screen buttons. Edit: Or as Zulfiger points out in the comments below, the back and search button may appear when pressed like the Samsung Galaxy S4. This does look remarkably similar to the Galaxy S4.

There’s not much else to learn from these renders. The device, from what we understand, is destined for Verizon Wireless here in the United States. The display is 1920 x 1080 on a 5-inch screen. Although recent data from AdDuplex suggests it’s a 4.3-inch, but that could be wrong. The device is expected to be a high-end smartphone.

We’ll start prodding around and see if we can find any more information about the Huron.
