As we get closer to the official unveiling of Windows Phone 8.1 we’ll start to see more and more handsets with the updated OS leak. We’ve seen a few from Nokia and an offering from Samsung. We’ve recently seen Nokia’s upcoming Lumia 630/635 (aka “Moneypenny”). Now today, we’re looking at some images of the Samsung ATIV SE. An upcoming Windows Phone 8.1 handset slated for Verizon later this year.

 

The Samsung ATIV SE, previously known as the Samsung Huron/SM-W750V, was first seen as press render in early February. Now we’re getting a clearer look at the device. Some noticeable things that stand out? No camera button, a honeycomb like pattern on the front of the device, a metallic looking finish on the rear, a physical Start button and support for an extra column on the Start screen.

 

Specs. We’ve had a hard time nailing down the specs for this device, but this is what we know so far. We’re expecting a 1080p display, but the screen size is either at 4.3-inches or 5-inches. Though we’re leaning towards 5-inches now that we’ve seen the screenshot above. A recent visit to the FCC showed off cellular bands for Verizon here in the United States. That’s pretty obvious now with the gigantic Verizon logo on the front of the ATIV SE.

Yep it's another ugly looking Samsung phone. And seems they're sticking with the plastic that looks like metal case that is really spew worthy, and that physical start button WHY!

I don't know, some have said they like the physical start button option.  I'm indifferent about it, don't really mind though with 8.1 having on screen buttons as a option now I think I'll lean towards that more, cleaner look.

Samsung really needs new designers :/

I think removing camera button is a mistake, does it really save them that much money?

I like the looks of the phone.   I also happen to like a physical button, so I don't have to look at phone to hit it.
