Has Samsung stopped making Windows Phone handsets?

Has Samsung withdrawn its support for Windows Phone?
I haven't heard anything since the ATIV S, and that was really low key.

I seem to remember hints of another Ativ phone. The Ativ S was actually a good phone considering its OS :p

The ATIV S was (possibly still is, I haven't used the Lumia 925 or 1020 yet) my favourite wp device. Saying that is like saying what your favourite way of getting punched in the face is though, so don't take it as too much as a positive.

Oh, matt... 'S not that bad!!! I just used a Lumia 820 for 2 weeks. I reckon WP8 is perfectly okay for many users' requirements.
Of course, a so-called camera phone that doesn't even show photo details (date taken, size etc) in the gallery (or anywhere) is what I call daft, but hey, at least there is no file explorer - so, no time wasted, eh?! :p
Some stuff was quite enjoyable: email client, the, cough, browser... And I like some stock and 3rd party apps. And then others are truly bad: the fake wannabe 3rd party file browser, the idiotic dropbox apps on a phone that so much relies on cloud services...
And how you can't wipe just the memory? Inspired!
Also: if I hear "Nokia Lense" ever again, I die from a ruptured diaphragm. Silly instagrammy filters. How innovative.
Which takes me to the cam. Good pics, but: do all WP8 devices spend a second between clicking the camera button and actually taking the photo? Where are we? 2006?

Ha ha.
I wish there was a 'like' as well as a 'useful answer' option.
