The Samsung Cetus i917, an upcoming Windows Phone 7 handset from the makers of the Galaxy S and the Wave has been caught on film in the hands of one of Microsoft’s project managers, Charlie Kindel.

Despite no official word having been uttered on any Cetus handset from Samsung, the device has been previously spotted and rumoured, pegged with a 4-inch OLED screen, 5-megapixel camera and an additional front-facing camera as well as Microsoft’s soon to be launched Windows Phone 7 mobile operating system.

The footage (below) was part of an internal Microsoft behind-the-scenes video that shows the device running a “fairly sophisticated home control system which is front-ended with web services.” Whilst the sleek looking Samsung handset is not discussed by name in the video, the handset fits with leaks of the Cetus that emerged earlier this year.

An official UK release date and pricing has yet to be announced for the Samsung Cetus but full details are expected to emerge when the Windows Phone 7 OS officially lands in the coming weeks.
