Samsung launched the first Win 8 Phone ATIV S and then Nokia released their flagship devices Lumia 920 and 820. For now Windows 8 phone have similar hardware when compared to Android devices. Check out the detailed features below:

Windows 8 runs on same hardware but storage has been decreased to 8GB. Nokia has also limited the battery source to 1650mAh to make the phone slimmer than Ativ S and Lumia 920.
