Samsung will be one of the first companies to release a smartphone running Windows Phone 8. There have been some talks recently about an upcoming phone from Samsung codenamed SGH-i687, which is a device with Windows Phone 8, most likely to be launched by U.S. operator AT & T. And now The Verge has published details about two other models, which are being prepared for release – codenamed Odyssey and Marco. The publisher got its hands on a paper submitted by the Korean giant during an online court trial with Apple.
According to these documents, the two phones will be powered by dual-core Qualcomm MSM8960 processor clocked at 1.5 GHz, and have the support for network standards LTE and HSPA +.
Samsung Odyssey will probably be a fgaship phone – it is equipped with 4.65-inch AMOLED display and HD-resolution (1280×720 pixels). Also in the arsenal it contains an 8-megapixel main camera, 2-MP front camera, and support for NFC.
Samsung Marco is definitely simpler of the two in performance. The smartphone has a 4-inch Super AMOLED display with WVGA resolution (800×480 pixels), 5-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front camera. Unfortunately, no photos of both these upcoming Windows 8 phone have yet been disclosed.
It is expected that the devices should hit the shelves in the fourth quarter of 2012, but the announcement is timed during the release of operating system Windows Phone 8.
