Samsung ATIV Odyssey Verizon Version Spotted at the FCC
Microsoft said that Verizon could carry the Samsung ATIV Odyssey Windows Phone 8 model when the OS was officially presented days ago and now that plan is coming to life. A supposed Verizon version of the device was spotted at the FCC, as confirmed by the sketch and filing below.
As you may have figured out, this is actually the Samsung Ativ S with Verizon branding and LTE/CDMA support. It’s going under the codename SCH-i930, hinting at its Windows Phone 8 origins. Just so you know, the SCH-i920 was the CDMA version of the Omnia II, one of the few occasions when Microsoft, Samsung and Verizon worked together. I have to remind you that Microsoft and Samsung promised a launch of the ATIV Odyssey in December, so since we’re getting close, it’s logical that the handset would go through this approval process.
If you want a quick reminder of what you’ll be getting for about $199 on contract (my speculation), the device features a 4.8 inch Super AMOLED screen with a 720p resolution, 1 GB of RAM, microSD card slot, HSDPA connectivity, an 8 megapixel camera and a dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.5 GHz CPU. So basically it’s a slightly tweaked Galaxy S III…
