The ATIV S may have been the first WP8 device to be announced, but it has meant with unwarranted delays with reports suggesting that the release could be deferred to as late as Feb. 2013. However, no one knows why the Samsung-made smartphone for Microsoft has met with so many delays.

With Samsung Mobile releasing the hands-on videos, it is perhaps an indication that the release of the ATIV S is not far away. A possibility exists that the Korean company has released the videos as a pre-release marketing ploy to draw in potential customers.

The first video (below), published on Dec. 7, shows off the ATIV S' Social Media feature and the 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with autofocus. The five-minute video gives prospective buyers an in-depth view into these features and shows off the wide range of settings.

"Access all your social content such as Facebook and Twitter in the People application and use the 8-megapixel autofocus camera to take great, quality snaps on the Samsung ATIV S featuring Windows Phone 8," notes Samsung Mobile.

The second video is five and a half minutes long and gives consumers a peek into the ATIV S smartphone's sleek design and software. This video too was published on Dec. 7.

"The Samsung ATIV S is a new smartphone for both work and entertainment, offering a premium Windows Phone experience," avers Samsung Mobile.
