Berlin - Samsung has unveiled a new phone running the Windows 8 operating system.

Samsung unveiled the ATIV S in Berlin which runs the mobile operating system from Microsoft.

It comes days after Samsung suffered a costly defeat in a patent dispute with Apple in the US.

The South Korean company has been ordered to pay Apple over $1bn in a patent lawsuit and Apple has sought an injunction against Samsung devices in the US.

Samsung also announced an update to its Galaxy Note and a camera based on Google's Android operating system.

The 16 megapixel camera was presented at the IFA tech show in Berlin on Wednesday.

Samsung's Galaxy Camera has features previously restricted to smartphones or tablet computers such as photo organising, photo sharing and voice control.

Samsung says the devices will be available in many countries from the end of October.
