Dominating the slim phone is a hefty 4.8-inch Super AMOLED HD display protected by Gorilla Glass 2, while inside can be found a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Krait processor.

Equipped with 1GB of RAM and 16GB and 32GB of onboard storage, the handset sports an 8MP camera on its back and a 1.9MP on the front for video calls.

The ATIV S comes with Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 3 and NFC connectivity, and there’s a beefy 2,300mAh battery powering the high-tech goodness.

Measuring up at 137.2 mm x 70.5 mm x 8.7 mm and weighing 135 grams, details of pricing and availability for the Samsung ATIV S are still under wraps for now, but we’re certainly interested in this little number.

Big things are expected of Windows 8, and we have to admit we’re a bit tempted to get on board for the ride.
