As per the court documents obtained by The Verge, the phones are – Odyssey and Macro. It is learnt that Odyssey is the going to be a high-end smartphone, with some going on to say that it will be Windows Phone 8 equivalent of the Samsung Galaxy S3. It will feature a 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED screen, a multi-core Qualcomm chipset and a powerful 8.0 Megapixel primary camera just like the Galaxy S3. Odyssey is also NFC-enabled.
On the other hand, Samsung’s Macro will be a midrange smartphone featuring a 4.0-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. It will sport a 5.0 Megapixel rear camera. Both new Windows phones will support LTE and HSPA+ 21 Mbps connectivity.
The new devices are expected to be released in the fourth quarter of 2012, around the same time when Windows Phone 8 is officially made available.
