Samsung confirms it’ll have Windows Phone 8 Apollo handsets in the second half of 2012

Last week, we told you that Samsung may plan to introduce three new Windows Phone devices this year, and two of them could come with Windows Phone 8 Apollo. Now, according to ePrice, Samsung Taiwan has confirmed that it would release a WP Apollo handset in the second half of the year.

The new Samsung WP 8 device should be out in October the earliest – since Microsoft will most likely not release the next iteration of its mobile OS before that. Unfortunately, for now there are no specific details on what the handset will bring, other than the new version of Windows Phone.

Before the new WP 8 device mentioned above, Samsung should launch the LTE-capable Mandel SGH-i667, which will run Windows Phone 7.5 Refresh (aka Tango). We’ll bring more on this as soon as we get new details.

    Can anyone tell me what will become of my newly-purchased Lumia handset when Windows Phone 8 arrives? Can it be upgraded, or did I just purchase a brick?
