Samsung Working On Two Windows Phone 8 Smartphones: Odyssey And Marco

A piece of information regarding Samsung’s plans about Microsoft’s mobile platform, Windows Phone 8 have recently hit the web. Looking through the documents submitted by the South Korean company as part of their lawsuit war against Apple, the guys at The Verge have discovered that Samsung is readying two Windows Phone 8 smartphones that will hit the market by the end of 2012.

Samsung is still on Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 OEM list alongside Nokia, Huawei and HTC. LG is one of the big phone makers that announced they will turn away from Windows Phone 8,┬áconcentrating┬átheir efforts on Google’s Android.

Returning to Samsung and their Marco and Odyssey smartphones running on Windows Phone 8, the two devices were spotted in the law suit against Apple that also provided the pictures of the iPad and iPhone early sketches that roamed around the web over the past few days.

Both Samsung Marco and Odyssey will be underpinned by a dual-core processor coming from Qualcomm, the MSM8960 clocked at 1.5 GHz. Samsung Odyssey will sport a 4.65-inch HD Super AMOELD display, the same installed on the Google dev smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

Odyssey comes with NFC support and Wallet Hub and Tap + compatibility, 8 megapixel camera and 2 megapixel front-facing unit for video calls.

It seems that Samsung Marco features a 4-inch Super AMOLED displa with WVGA resolution or 480 x 800 pixels, 5 megapixel camera and user-facing 2 megapixel camera.

Both Samsung’s Windows Phone 8 smartphones come with 4G LTE support and the launch have been sheduled for Q4 2012, right after Windows Phone 8 officially debuts in November.
