Samsung lets slip info on WinPho 8 Odyssey

Taps into multi-core

3 Big data security analytics techniques

Samsung has indadvertedly revealed in court documents its plans for a pair of Windows Phone 8 devices. The dual-core handsets - dubbed "Odyssey" and "Marco" - are both set to roll out with the mobile platform's release later this year.

There are no detailed specifications, but the court copy shows the Samsung Odyssey features a 4.65in HD display and an 8Mp camera. It'll also have NFC capabilities and should thus be well-equipped for the eWallet and 'Tap to Send' features Microsoft touts for Windows 8.

The Samsung Marco, meanwhile, sports a 4in display with a 480 x 800 resolution, plus a 5Mp camera.

Both devices support LTE, run on a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm MSM8960 chip and should debut in Q4.

With Microsoft insisting it wouldn't enter the smartphone hardware business, models from Samsung - along with the likes of Nokia and HTC - were always expected.

The real question is, will they be strong enough to claw a greater chunk of the mobile market in 2012 than WinPho has managed to clock up thus far. ®
