The launch of Windows Phone 8 Update 3 was supposed to herald an armada of quad-core full HD handsets running Microsoft's OS that would take the fight to their Android rivals throughout 2014.
So where are they? Look past Nokia, and that's a good question. Well Samsung at least seems to have something of an answer, and it looks set to go by the name of SM-W750V.
Not much to go on, though as with 2011' Omnia W (pictured above), the W in the model name suggests a Windows Phone.
It's not the first time the model number has popped up either: back in November it was spotted on an import document going into India from South Korea, which revealed a 5in screen size and not much else.
But it's now received its Bluetooth certification too, and thanks to its UAProf specification we can see it has both a full HD resolution and runs Internet Explorer 10 as its primary browser, which confirms Windows Phone 8 GDR3 is the OS on board.
All of this suggests it may make an appearance at MWC 2014 next month, but that isn't a guarantee. Samsung has hardly made Windows Phone a priority before now, so just because the W750V is ready to go doesn't mean getting it out the door is a high priority for Samsung right now – especially with the far more significant Galaxy S5 launch starting to loom large on the horizon.
That said, if the GS5 is launched at a dedicated event like it has for the past two instalments of Samsung's Android flagship, it would leave Sammy short of a big-hitting device to take top billing at MWC. Could the W750V be a slightly leftfield answer to that problem? Don't bet against it.
