According to British website TechRadar, Samsung will be bringing out Windows Phone 8 smartphones when Microsoft releases the platform. Only yesterday, Microsoft quietly released an update for Windows Phone codenamed Tango which for all intents and purposes targets the lower segment of the market. In stark contrast, Windows Phone 8 will be perhaps the most comprehensive update for the nascent platform and will bring in support for dual-core processors, something that the platform does not currently support.

TechRadar quotes Matt Brum, Samsung s head of product management who stated:
Windows Phone 8 is coming at the end of the year, and will increase the capability of the platform, and Samsung is looking to optimize its devices on that. We’re very excited about Windows Phone 8, as we’re one of very few manufacturers that can do the convergence story that we can so the fact that Windows 8 covers everything from tablets to laptops to phones is very cool.
Previously, details about Windows Phone 8 codenamed Apollo have been leaked, which suggest considerable synergy between Microsoft s upcoming Windows 8, which will hit the consumer preview stage tomorrow. It should be noted that Samsung is one of the few companies in the market, which makes everything from Windows Laptops, Windows Phone smartphones to Android Tablets and it is conceivable that the company would provide an integrated experience to the end-users on their Windows powered products.
