Said to hit Sprint stores on August 16th at $149.99 on their late Summer market, the Samsung AVIT S Neo has consumers feeling hopeful. While Nokia seems to have previously taken the Windows phone under its belt, Samsung is making a run for it. The question in the back of our minds is, “Will Samsung know how to pull off the ideal Windows phone?” From the looks of the AVIT S Neo, not much about the presentation of the phone seems to have changed from its earlier version, the Samsung ATIV S. Let’s hope it brings something extra to the table.
The Samsung AVIT S Neo conveniently sits at the same screen size as its previous model – 4.8 inches. Neglecting to provide any color selection at all, Sprint’s new black phone may not be a competitor on the market. Maintaining Sprint’s signature, glossy appeal, it does pack a unique punch though; the AVIT S Neo is a seemingly bulky phone with the dimensions of 5.40 x 2.78 x 0.34 inches. Another aspect about this upcoming phone is that there will be a physical home key button, allowing users to access the phone a newer – not necessarily better – way.
The AVIT S Neo’s hardware may be the only quality assuring Sprint that it’ll sell. With a talk time of approximately 13 hours and stand by time of over 10 days, it’ll be highly admired by users with old, worn out phones. The AVIT S Neo’s system chip is Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8960 and it has a dual core processor at 1500 MHz. Sprint does, however, adequately reflect that it’s moving with the times as their new phone holds 1024 MB RAM of system memory and 16 GB of built in storage. As most people are using their phones for more and more reasons today, the AVIT S Neo allows for several expansion packs including microSD, microSDHC, and microSDXC up to 64 GB. With an 8 megapixel, LED camera, the phone proves that it does have a flashy side, despite it’s generally average outside appearance.
When the Samsung AVIT S Neo phone hits Sprint store August 16th, it’s still uncertain whether it will be a success of a flop. Although on the surface it doesn’t appear to be much of an upgrade from the earlier AVIT S, Sprint’s new Windows 8 phone could take everyone by surprise with its hardware capabilities. One thing’s for certain, we’re just going to have to wait and see.Buy Now
