Samsung answers lingering ATIV S Neo hardware questions


It’s been seven weeks since Sprint made good on its intent to finally get into Windows Phone 8 with the launch of the HTC 8XT and Samsung ATIV S Neo. The 8XT has already gone up for sale, so there are no more secrets there, but we’ve been left with plenty of questions about the ATIV S Neo – after all, Sprint declined to provide some key hardware specs during its initial press release, and we’ve largely been left in the dark as to an actual retail launch date. While Sprint has still yet to expand on what it’s told us about the phone, Samsung is stepping up to fill in some of the gaps.

On a new Samsung ATIV S Neo product page, we learn that the phone will ship with 16GB of internal flash storage, for instance. Earlier, Sprint had touted the handset’s microSD expansion, but hadn’t said a thing about native storage capacity – since then, there had even been claims that the phone would only be an 8GB model, a rumor we’re glad to now see invalidated.

A leaked roadmap from last month suggested that the ATIV S Neo might go up for sale this Friday, August 16. While it’s possible that date might have shifted in the interim, we haven’t seen any additional leaks to suggest such a thing, so this Windows Phone handset might really be just about to land.
