U.S. Cellular's Windows Phone 8 model is the Samsung ATIV Odyssey
Back in April, regional carrier U.S. Cellular said that it would be soon adding a Windows Phone 8 model to go along with the one Windows Phone 7 model left in its lineup, the ZTE Render. On Saturday, leaked promotional material from the carrier revealed that the Windows Phone 8 handset will be the Samsung ATIV Odyssey. The device, which was offered for free with a signed two year Verizon contract at Best Buy in January, is a mid-range model.

Equipped with a 4 inch Super AMOLED screen offering resolution of 480 x 800 (WVGA), the Samsung ATIV Odyssey has a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus under the hood with an Adreno 225 GPU. 1GB of RAM is on board along with 8GB of native storage. There is a 64GB capacity microSD slot included on the phone. The rear-faced camera weighs in at 5MP while the one in front is 1.2MP. A 2100mAh battery will handle your power needs and the phone does offer NFC support and LTE connectivity.

No word on when U.S.Cellular will launch the device, or how much it will be. As we pointed out, we've already seen this phone offered for free and that was 6 months ago, so we wouldn't expect the price to bust your wallet.
