Upcoming Samsung Omnia W with Windows Phone may have 1.4 GHz CPU, NFC support

While there’s literally at least one leak of an Android device’s specs, pictures, or other info each day, leaks regarding upcoming Windows Phone devices are quite rare. That may of course have something to do with the operating system’s tiny market share. Then again, Android had a tiny market share two years ago, and look how far we’ve come.

Today’s WP-related leak comes courtesy of SamFirmware, usually a pretty reliable source for new leaked firmwares for various smartphones. Via its Twitter account, it announced a couple of specs for Samsung’s “new Windows Phone”.

It will apparently come with a 3.7-inch touchscreen, a 1.4 GHz processor (unclear yet if single-core or dual-core) and NFC support. According to WMPowerUser, these specs line up nicely with some previously leaked information about a device which will probably be sold under the name Samsung Omnia W (and will obviously be the successor to the Omnia 7).

Other previously rumored specs for the Omnia W include a 5 MP camera and 512 MB of RAM. This would have been a high-end handset 18 months ago, but in this day and age it’s anything but top of the line. Still, maybe that processor will turn out to be dual-core (although we doubt it).

    If we follow Sammy’s new naming scheme, Omnia W would be a high end device, but not top of the line (that may be the Samsung SGH i937) . And I guess it will be a single core chip as well.
