The Galaxy Note II wasn’t the only flagship device that Samsung announced at its pre-IFA press conference. The company also revealed the first ever Windows Phone 8 smartphone – the Samsung ATIV S.

The ATIV S is built around a 4.8-inch Super AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) display of HD resolution and has Gorilla Glass 2 on top for extra protection. Powering the smartphone is a 1.5Giga Hertz (GHz) dual-core elegant Qualcomm Krait processor and 1GB of RAM. At the back, there’s an 8MP camera, while a 1.9MP snapper is at the front.

Measuring 137.2 mm x 70.5 mm x 8.7 mm, the Samsung ATIV S weighs 135 grams and packs a beefy 2,300mAh battery. Connectivity options include Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 3 and NFC. Windows Phone 8 supports memory expansion slots and the Samsung ATIV S makes utilize of that, bringing a microSD card slot to allow expansion of its 16GB or 32GB built-in storage.

Pricing and availability is yet to be confirmed, but we're guessing the smartphone will hit the shelves immediately after Microsoft officially releases the Windows Phone 8 OS.

Making the Samsung ATIV S company are three recent Windows 8-powered tablets – the 10.1” ATIV Tab, and two 11.6” ATIV Smart Personal Computer (PC) and ATIV Smart Personal Computer (PC) Pro.
