CES 2013: Samsung Ativ Odyssey for Verizon

1:25 /

Jessica Dolcourt runs through the features of the Samsung Ativ Odyssey for Verizon at CES 2013.

Hey, this is Jessica Dolcourt for CNET, here in CES 2013. I'm at Samsung's booth, I've got a Samsung ATIV Odyssey. This phone was just announced for Verizon, we did a look at it in the fall but this is the first time we're getting a hands-on. It's a Windows phone, running Windows phone 8 operating system. It is 4G LTE. Now this phone is smaller than what Samsung has been doing, it's only a 4-inch screen. It's got a Super AMOLED display. It's running off of a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, so it should be fairly fast but it's not quad-core. It has a 5 megapixel camera at the back with LED flash and it takes 1080p HD video, also 1080p HD video playback. There's a 1.3 megapixel camera on the front. There's a also the physical hardware buttons to take photos, I love that, that's on everyone else's phone. And there is a micro SD card slot that would take up to 64GB of offboard storage, there are only 8GB of onboard storage, so that's something you definitely want to expand if you're a person who likes your media. Verizon hasn't announced any pricing or availability yet but it should be coming soon. For CNET, I'm Jessica Dolcourt, you can catch all of our CES news at cnet.com.
