Samsung to release Windows Phone 8 Apollo handsets

Samsung may not be having much affair with the Windows Phone platform compared to the likes of HTC and Nokia but here they are with a confirmation from its Taiwanese branch that they will be releasing two smartphones with WP’s next iteration, codename Apollo, starting this October 2012.

Like a father waiting for a son to get a license before he can drive the family car, it seems like Samsung was waiting for Windows Phone to mature a bit so it would be able to utilize high-end hardware. Considering that Apollo will bring support for multicore processors, new screen resolutions, and MicroSD card expansion, Samsung’s move is justified.

With Ice Cream Sandwich coming to high-end Android smartphones, let’s see if Samsung will attract more consumers to their handsets with the help of Apollo.

    Doesn’t matter, hindi naman yan dadalhin dito ng Samsung Philippines, just like what they did with their own Windows Phone 7 line.

    I will definitely wait for it. I’ve been working with Windows ever since. Having a phone that would connect seamlessly with my home and work computer, plus its rumored new enterprise features such as domain join and exchange server support, and new media features, plus running on new hardware, it would probably do well
