Description

The Samsung ATIV Odyssey will support LTE, but it will also be a global ready smartphone. The handset will be 4.82-inches high, 2.51-inches wide and 0.43-inches thick. With a slightly larger battery at 2,100mAh, and a smaller 4-inch WVGA Super AMOLED screen, the ATIV Odyssey will weigh less than its counterparts at 4.41 ounces. The main camera is 5MP, will be able to shoot 1080p video and the front facing camera is 1.2MP which will be able to record 720p video. Power is managed by the same 1.5GHz dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor found in the other Windows Phone 8 devices sold in the US. On board there is 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage, plus the aforementioned microSD expansion. Samsung will have some of its own apps on the Odyssey, Now, Mini Diary and Photo Editor. NFC is supported, but wireless charging will not be available.
