Samsung’s next Windows Phone 8 handset is called Cronus
Details of a new Samsung Windows Phone 8 device, called Cronus, have been discerned from the logs of MobileCare, an official Samsung app that’s available on the Windows Phone Store.
The description for MobileCare says:
“MobileCare collects the log/minidump files and uploads to Samsung MobileCare server which is normally used in User Trial. The quality of the product can be improved by statistical analysis of the log/minidump.
*it can be worked only on below Samsung devices:
Cronus(developing), Launched devices (GDR2 or later version of ATIV S/ATIV Odyssey) and now we will use only for English.”
Earlier in May, a user on Reddit posted a list of devices that were going to launch on the Windows Phone 8 platform soon, which included handsets like the HTC Tiara and Samsung Cronus LTE. So it looks likely that Samsung’s next offering for Windows Phone will be called Cronus and it will feature LTE connectivity and come with Windows Phone 8 GDR2 or later.
Samsung mentioned this week that it has managed to sell 20 million Galaxy S4 devices, and is going strong in terms of tablet sales as well with the Galaxy Tab series. With the imminent launch of a new Windows Phone device on the horizon, it looks like Samsung is looking to dominate on all fronts.
