Samsung Odyssey, Marco Windows Phone 8 leak

At the Windows Phone 8 announcement in June, Microsoft confirmed that Samsung would be making hardware for the new smartphone operating system. Now some details on a couple of possible Samsung-made Windows Phone 8 devices have surfaced in the documents of the Apple v. Samsung trial that's set to kick off today. First up is the Odyssey, a handset that Samsung refers to as an "iconic smartphone." The Odyssey is said to feature a 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED display along with 8-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front cameras, NFC, 1.5GHz dual-core MSM8960 processor and HSPA+ 21/LTE connectivity.

The other device named in the leaked doc is dubbed the Marco. This device isn't quite as high-end as its Odyssey brother, featuring a 4-inch WVGA Super AMOLED display along with 5-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front cameras. However, the Marco does share some specs with the Odyssey, including a 1.5GHz dual-core MSM8960 processor and HSPA+ 21/LTE support. Both the Odyssey and Marco are said to be coming in Q4 2012.

Microsoft named several new features of Windows Phone 8 when it first announced the OS, but two of the more eye-catching additions were support for higher resolution displays and multi-core chipsets. It's good to see that Samsung may be prepping hardware that'll take advantage of these new parts of Windows Phone 8 right out of the gate. We're still missing a few crucial details of these two Samsung handsets, such as pricing and a more precise launch date, but at least folks looking forward to Windows Phone 8 are starting to get an idea of what they can expect to see out of the phones that'll be running Microsoft's new OS. Do either of these devices pique your interest, Windows Phone fans?
