Samsung working on Odyssey and Marco Windows Phone 8 devices
Samsung just showed a patent filing which reveals that they are working on two Windows Phone 8 devices to launch later this year. The higher end of the two, the Samsung Odyssey seems to be highly inspired by the Galaxy SIII which is Samsung’s flagship Android device.
Both the phones are powered by the 1.5Ghz dual core Qualcomm MSM8960 chipset which is LTE friendly. The differences lie more in the size and type of screen used in addition to the presence of a NFC chip in the Odyssey. The smaller of the two, the Marco has a WVGA 4″ screen while the Odyssey sports a 4.65″ HD Super AMOLED display. Expect to hear more about the devices towards the end of the year when we see more of Windows Phone 8 revealed.
