Dual-core Samsung Odyssey and Marco with Windows Phone 8 coming later this year?
Samsung – which sold more than 50 million smartphones in the second quarter of the year – will be among the first manufacturers to launch Windows Phone 8 handsets. We’ve already heard about the SGH-i687, which is a WP8 device that’s seemingly headed to AT&T.
And now The Verge has details on two other upcoming WP8 handsets from Samsung. Codenamed Odyssey and Marco, both devices are powered by 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8960 processors, and have LTE and HSPA connectivity.
The Samsung Odyssey is presented as an “iconic smartphone.” It features a 4.65 inch Super AMOLED HD display, NFC, 8MP rear camera, and a 2MP front-facing camera. The Marco only features a 4 inch WVGA Super AMOLED display, a 5MP rear camera, and a 2MP front-facing camera.
Unfortunately, for now there are no photos of the Samsung Odyssey and Marco. But we know that both are scheduled to be released in the fourth quarter of the year.
