Listing shows evidence for an upcoming 5-inch Windows Phone from Samsung

It's been a while since Samsung has released a new Windows Phone, and in December rumors of a upcoming smartphone with the "SM-W750V" model number started to pop up on the Internet. Today, there's some new evidence that the SM-W750V might be a real product.

The Bluetooth SIG group, which approves all devices that use the wireless protocol, has now listed the SM-W750V from Samsung as coming to the North American market. The other bit of info comes from Samsung itself; it has posted a partial page on its mobile website that, when you look inside the code, shows that this same phone has a 1080x1920 display, along with LTE support and, most importantly, Internet Explorer.

It's the mention of IE that would seem to confirm that SM-W750V is part of the Samsung Windows Phone lineup, and the fact that it has an 1080x1920 screen indicates that the display could be around 5 inches. All of this evidence is pointing towards Samsung releasing a new, and rather high end Windows Phone device in the very near future. Now all we need is some leaked images to show the smartphone is a real product.

After years of nothing for my Omnia7 I am now an happy owner of a Nokia Lumia 920. No looking back sammy.

It would take a lot to make me buy anything other than a Nokia phone at this point. No other OEM has shown the same level of commitment to its users and to improving the platform as Nokia have.

Of course this might change once MS take control of Nokia's devices division but Nokia have shown us how good an OEM can be and I haven't seen any sign that Samsung or HTC intend to mimic them.

Nokia's support and apps are what pull me to a nokia lumia. But it should be interesting to see what sony has under wraps for wp.

I don't see it changing, the division will probably still run like it has but with the added benefit of having more money on hand to work with compared to before, should mean we'll see future Lumia phones coming to markets quicker than in the past were we've had these slow rollouts and limited supply.

Besides I think MS has shown they can support their own hardware just fine, surface devices getting frequent firmware updates is a positive sign.

Change could be in the sense that MS will make these Nokia features non-exclusive as they probably integrate them into platform.

Would be very interesting to have new phones that will come with WP8.1 teased at MWC next month. Then MS pulls the curtain back on it a few weeks later at build with an announcement of the new phones coming soon to market.
