Nokia is not the only OEM to launch Windows Phone 8 devices, and we learned about it when Microsoft announced its new operating system. Among other manufacturers the most interesting ones were Samsung and HTC. As of now, we have grabbed an interesting rumor that is sure to please you.
The first part of the rumor refers to the Samsung Odyssey. The phone has been leaked for a few times, and its existence is out of doubt. But till today we didn’t know how it would be called and what features it would come with. The second part is about the Samsung Marco, which is going to be Odyssey’s mid-range sibling. According to the rumor coming from SamMobile, the Odyssey will end up as the Samsung Omnia 8, while there is no assumption about Marco’s final name.
The Odyssey will be packed with a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display and an 8MP camera. The Marco is said to come with a WVGA 4-inch display and a 5MP camera. Both handsets will be packed with a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4, which makes us hope to see LTE support on both phones. The Odyssey is supposed to come with 16/32GB of native storage, while the Marco seems to be launched with 8GB of internal memory, though both smartphones will support microSD card slots.
The launch dates of both devices remain unknown. As to prices, the source is sure the Samsung Marco will cost $430-$500, and the high-end Odyssey $610-$740.
