Samsung Might Bring the Galaxy S III to Windows PhoneS

According to the Verge, Samsung is going to announce a new 4.8-inch Windows Phone today at IFA. And it looks almost exactly like the Galaxy S III—which is a really good thing.

The reported specs break down like this: 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED Display, an 8-megapixel rear camera, and 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera. Pretty good! But more important is what that signifies: Samsung is taking Windows Phone seriously. It's sending what appears to be a version of its flagship phone to WP, which it had previously just churned out mid-tier phones for, like the Focus, Focus S, and Focus Flash.

We'll let you know more as we get official information later today, but for now, this is really promising—if for no reason other than the dedicated camera button. [Verge]
