Samsung ATIV Odyssey, a Windows Phone 8 Pre-Announcement Leak

Samsung’s new Windows Phone 8 device for Verizon’s network, the ATIV Odyssey, has been spotted pre-announcement, with a press image of the LTE smartphone creeping into the wild. The official looking shot emerged via evleaks – which also help spoil Verizon’s surprise with the HTC DROID DNA over the weekend – though we’ve heard whispers of the name and specifications since early in 2012.

Back in March, for instance, a leaked product sheet confirmed the Odyssey name and gave us an idea of the sort of hardware we could expect. Fronted by a 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED resolution display, according to those original specifications, the SCH-I930 has an 8-megapixel camera on the back and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.

Inside, there’s Qualcomm’s Snapdragon MSM8960, a 1.5GHz dual-core, along with NFC. Aside from the display, it all sounds much in line with Samsung’s ATIV S (which has a 4.8-inch panel) that we’ve already seen the company flaunting at the Windows Phone 8 launch event.
