Samsung ATIV S

We know that Samsung is working on launching the ATIV SE on Verizon, but what about the rest of the world? SamMobile has reported that the manufacturer is actively developing another Windows Phone – the ATIV Core. It's believed to be a mid-range smartphone and will be a launching product for Windows Phone 8.1, Microsoft's next major update for the platform.

Rum: 6

The reason we're weighing something on this report is down to Samsung not missing out on a Windows Phone as of yet. The company has released a steady (albeit slow) flow of smartphones running Microsoft's mobile OS and the ATIV Core would fit in alongside the plethora of Nokia/Microsoft devices, joined by phones from newly announced partners.

The ATIV Core is said to have a 4.5-inch display (720p), 1GB RAM and be powered by a 2100mAh power plant. We're not sure about the report (take it with a grain of salt), but would you be interested in a mid-range Samsung Windows Phone 8.1 device?
