We’ve heard a lot about the Verizon Samsung ATIV SE lately, including some leaked official press renders, as well as speculations regarding its internals. Looks like the rumors were spot on, as Verizon has made the Windows Phone available for pre-order on its website. It goes for $199.99 with a two-year contract, but if you choose not to sign on the dotted line, it will set you back $599.99.
So what’s inside the Samsung ATIV SE? A five-inch Full HD (1080p) AMOLED screen, 2.23GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD card — up to 64GB), 13MP main shooter, and a two-megapixel webcam. Everything is powered by a 2,600mAh battery, and Windows Phone 8 is listed on the spec sheet (but Samsung will probably update it to 8.1 soon — though there’s no wording on it at the moment).
Additionally, there’s also a BoGo deal going on: you buy one Verizon Samsung ATIV SE, and you can get another one for free, or an HTC One (M8), or a Samsung Galaxy S 5.
If you pre-order now, it will ship by April 12, 2014. Now, you tell us: this, or the Lumia Icon?
