Russian mobile website NOMOBILE.RU managed to get some hands-on action with the Samsung ATIV S, which was announced at IFA 2012 in Berlin this week. The Windows Phone was presented in its glory, and looked surprisingly elegant when put against its Android counterpart in the video.
What's interesting about this hands-on coverage was the few seconds the reviewer took to bend the plastic backplate. Now, if you saw the image above before reading the title, you'd immediately assume it's on the verge of snapping, but it seems the Samsung ATIV S (much like the Galaxy S III) can actually bend it like Beckham - refers to David Beckham curling the football around a defensive wall from set pieces.
We can clearly see the microSD and SIM card slots, as well as a few connectors - notice the missing battery? The reviewer was unable to fire the Windows Phone up in the review. Be sure to check out the video for the bending action and to see just how thin the ATIV S looks.
Unfortunately armed Microsoft personnel were in the room who were overseeing the review and wouldn't allow the Russian team to insert the battery into the device.
