Samsung has become the first Windows Phone manufacturer to reveal a Windows Phone 8 device, beating Nokia to the punch just days before their own joint press event with Microsoft.

  • 8.7mm brushed aluminum chassis
  • 4.8” HD Super AMOLED display made from Corning Gorilla Glass 2
  • 1.5Ghz dual-core processor
  • 1GB of onboard RAM
  • 8MP autofocus rear camera
  • 1.9MP front-facing camera
  • 16GB or 32GB storage models
  • MicroSD slot for expanded storage
  • 2300mAh battery
  • NFC (Near Field Communications)

Here’s a gallery of pictures released by Microsoft of the new handset:
