Expansys Italy discounts 16GB ATIV S, lists 32GB version for pre-order

Samsung ATIV S

The Samsung ATIV S is making its way around Europe and beyond, but the 32GB version is yet to be made available, leaving the 16GB as the only option for consumers who are looking to adopt Windows Phone 8 early. The Windows Phone (sporting the latter amount of storage) was previously delayed in Italy until this very month.

We previously looked at the handset when it was made available here in the UK (again, 16GB), but Expansys in Italy have now listed the 32GB variant of the ATIV S. Unfortunately pricing is yet to be unveiled for the new version. Not only that, but the 16GB units are reportedly discounted in preparation for the more advanced variant.

So how much of a drop are we talking about? It's nothing to go crazy about, but 20 euros is 20 euros and like consumers we'll take anything. Originally priced at €559.99, the ATIV S can now be picked up from Expansys Italy for €539.99. Still fairly expensive for a mobile phone, but we're talking unlocked and the latest specifications to ensure a smooth experience is guaranteed.

To recap on what's inside the ATIV S, we're looking at a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 chip powering the system, while 1GB RAM and 16 / 32GB internal storage ensures enough memory is presently available (with the added SD Card slot). All the bells and whistles are featured in the ATIV S, including NFC, Bluetooth and WiFi. The rear shooter is an 8MP camera with auto-focus (FFC 1.9MP). 

It's interesting to see how the ATIV S launch is expanded, being the first smartphone from Samsung to run Windows Phone 8. Also launching in Asia, namely China, Samsung is looking to push the device into multiple markets in order to compete internally with other supporting OEM partners.

Any news about yellow lumia? 

Nakazul says:

Is Expansys doing bad? Seems the Swedish customer support is fired and you are placed on hold for hours. Gave up reaching them.

they must be doing bad. I tried to order the Samsung Ativ S "T899M" and they told me I had to wait 2 weeks at least. I cancelled my order and bought if from "swiftronics" it was delivered less than 60 hours later. 

Jazmac says:

Looks like a good looking phone.

I ordered one today for our office for a co worker who wants a XXL screen with WP8. Will see... might take some time before we get it.

RaRa85 says:

So I'm guessing they gave up on the Samsung Ativ S review all together? Will it ever even make it to the US? Questions. Questions.

Had to buy mine off of eBay here in the USA. Boy, it sure was worth my 600 us dollars. I am so pleased with this phone, since waiting (in vain) for a lame us carrier to pick it up.
This ain't no dweeb Odyssey from Verizon, believe me.
