HTC and Samsung are no strangers when it comes to launching handsets running on the Windows Phone 7 OS. Though these manufacturers are well known for their Android handsets, they have launched a range of devices using the Microsoft based OS. According to a report by The Verge, sources have informed them that HTC and Samsung would be launching handsets that run on a pre-Tango version of Windows Phone that has LTE support.
Pre-Tango release with LTE support
HTC is set to launch the Radiant, while Samsung will announce the Mandel. Not much is known about either handsets, except that the latter will feature a display that is larger than 4.3 inches. We recently saw a roadmap for Windows Phone in 2012 and learnt that Microsoft set to release Tango, which is designed for lower end WP7 devices. This may not hold true as it appears that Nokia may launch their upcoming flagship handset the Lumia 900 with this OS. The report goes on to state that these handsets by HTC and Samsung would be launched alongside the Lumia 900 in early 2012.
The launch date for these devices is not yet known, but the report suggests that it could be launched at the Mobile World Conference at Barcelona in February 2012.
