A pair of likely photos of the Samsung
First, the Windows Phone 8 handset is to arrive at Verizon's doorstep in December, but the exact timing remains murky.
Details for the Ativ Odyssey have yet to be formally announced; rumors suggest it could feature a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor with an Adreno 225GPU. As indicated by these images, we can see that the handset will support Verizon's 4G LTE network and feature a microSD expansion card slot.
The early photos also make the case that the Ativ Odyssey will be a smaller version of the Samsung. Should the internal hardware match up, Verizon customers might look forward to a rear-facing 8-megapixel camera with autofocus and an LED flash, a 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera, and NFC.
