Samsung ATIV Odyssey Verizon official

The Samsung ATIV Odyssey for Verizon was first announced at Microsoft's big Windows Phone 8 launch event last year, and shortly thereafter, we were told that the handset would be hitting Big Red's shelves before the end of 2012. Well, New Year's Day 2013 came and went without an ATIV Odyssey launch, but it looks like that may finally be changing soon. Samsung and Verizon announced today that the ATIV Odyssey will be launching sometime "in the coming weeks." The specs for the ATIV Odyssey, which are fairly similar to the ones that leaked out last week, are as follows:

  • 4-inch 800x480 Super AMOLED display
  • 5-megapixel rear, 1.2-megapixel front cameras
  • 1.5GHz dual-core processor
  • 8GB storage, microSD slot
  • 1GB RAM
  • Global roaming support
  • 2,100mAh battery

Samsung and Verizon also announced that the S Pen-equipped Galaxy Note 10.1 will soon be available with some 4G LTE flavor added in. Also expected to hit Verizon's shelves at some point "in the coming weeks," this new version of the Galaxy Note 10.1 will feature support for Verizon's LTE network and will come with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean preinstalled. The other specs are similar to those found on the Wi-Fi-only Note 10.1 that launched last year. That means you're looking at:

  • 10.1-inch 1280x800 display
  • 5-megapixel rear, 1.9-megapixel front cameras
  • 1.4GHz quad-core processor
  • S Pen stylus
  • Photoshop Touch software preinstalled

There's no word yet on how much either of these LTE-spiced products will cost once they hit the market, but with launches slated to go down "in the coming weeks," it shouldn't be long before all is finally revealed. Until then, you can find the official announcements for both of these devices at the Samsung links below to help get you primed and ready for their arrival.
