According to earlier rumors, word on the street has it that Sprint would be making the Samsung ATIV S Neo available this Friday, making it Sprint’s second Windows Phone handset after the HTC 8XT. Well the good news is that Sprint has officially confirmed this themselves and has announced that the ATIV S Neo will indeed be available starting on Friday, the 16th of August. The phone will be priced at $149.99 on a two-year contract with a $50 mail-in rebate, and according to Sprint, it will also be the carrier’s first Windows Phone 8 device to offer up international roaming capabilities, so if you’re looking for a phone to take with you on holiday, we’re guessing that this could be it, especially if you’re after the Windows Phone 8 experience.
The phone will feature a 4.8” display with a 1.4GHz dual-core processor under the hood, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of onboard storage that can be expanded via microSD, a 2,000mAh battery, an 8MP rear-facing camera, a 1.9MP front-facing camera, and because this is a Samsung Windows Phone device, it will come preloaded with exclusive Samsung Windows Phone apps as well. So, any takers? [Press release]
