ATIV S could be unveiled at IFA 2012

Samsung may still be in shock over its $1.05B loss to Apple in a U.S. court, but that isn't stopping the company with moving forward with fresh new products. Microsoft's Windows Phone mobile operating system has been treading water in the smartphone space for well over a year, but Samsung is hoping to liven things up with a sleek, fresh entry to the fray.
 
The Samsung ATIV S features an 8.7mm brushed aluminum chassis and will come packing a 4.8" HD Super AMOLED screen, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, and an 8MP rear camera. For those that actually bother using the front-facing camera, that unit dials in at 1.9MP.

There will be both 16GB and 32GB models made available to the public, and a microSD slot will also be included if you choose to expand storage on your own. A generous 2300mAh battery is included to ensure that you have enough juice to last through the day.
 
You can check out more pictures and thoughts on the Samsung ATIV S on the Windows Phone Blog.

The launch date for Windows Phone 8 will likely be announced next week.

4.8" screen! Too big, I hope T-Mobile has something in mind for those of us without a giant purse or fanny pack...

Definitely not to big, I was thrilled with my giant screen on my galaxy nexus until bigger phones came out. The bigger the screen the better in my book, so long as it still fits in jeans pockets and is easily held with one hand.

My 4.8 S3 fits inside my regular pocket. I imagine as long as you don't wear skin tight jeans you'll be fine.
