Featuring a sizeable 4.8 inch HD Super AMOLED display and 1.5GH dual-core processor, it’s lining itself up as a cool competitor to Nokia’s Lumia range.

Measuring 137.2 x 70.5 x 8.7mm and weighing 135g, the handset also packs in an 8MP rear camera and 1.9MP front snapper. NFC, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity also feature.

The ATIV branding will also be Samsung’s Windows Phone 8 identifier going forward, so expect to see plenty more ATIV phones popping up in the near future.
