Steve Ballmer, while on stage at the October 29 Windows Phone 8 event, unveiled a certain Samsung ATIV Odyssey without giving us much details though, aside from the named of the carrier –Verizon– and the disclaimer that it was coming in December. We’ve seen Big Red start its Windows Phone 8 pre-orders but the ATIV Odyssey was not part of the line-up.
The image above represents the first look at Samsung’s Windows Phone variant for Verizon. The model number is SCH-I930 but we don’t know much about the device, except for that LTE signal on the top left, hinting 4G LTE radio capability. The Samsung ATIV S was the first Windows Phone 8 device to be ever unveiled and if the ATIV Odyssey is just a carrier variant we can expect a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display, eight megapixel main camera and a 1.9-megapixel webcam. However, it could sport totally different specs if it’s more of a new device than a carrier flavor.
Verizon has been so far silent about the device but we’re expecting official wording soon, as it is usually the case with press renders being leaked.
