Samsung ATIV Odyssey for Verizon shown in leaked image

So far Verizon has officially launched two Windows Phone 8 devices: the Nokia Lumia 820 and Windows Phone 8X by HTC, both of which will be available very shortly. But if you've been following since the Windows Phone 8 launch on October 29, you'll know that there's another WP8 device coming to Verizon before the end of the year known as the Samsung ATIV Odyssey.

Thanks to @evleaks on Twitter - best known for accurately leaking press shots of the Lumia 820 and 920 before they were announced - we're seeing a proper, leaked shot of the ATIV Odyssey for the first time. It has a similar design to the Samsung Focus and Focus 2, however the back looks like the flagship ATIV S that has already been announced.

From the shots you can see the 4G LTE logo on the back, as well as a slot for a microSD card on the left hand side; plus of course, Windows Phone 8 is seen running on the display. We've actually heard rumors about the Odyssey since July where the device was revealed in court documents: they listed a 4.65" Super AMOLED display, an 8 MP rear plus a 2 MP front-facing camera, Qualcomm's MSM8960 chip used in many other Windows Phones, and NFC.

While this image above doesn't really show the size of the device compared to anything else, the above specs including the 4.65" display seem plausible. The design leaves a lot to be desired, however it doesn't appear to be a particularly low-end device though not as high up on the chain as the ATIV S. This is speculation of course, as we'll have to wait for Samsung and Verizon to make an official announcement sometime in the future.

That stupid checkmark throws off the design balance in the Verizon logo. If they got rid of the huge hockeystick and just had the name, it wouldn't be so ugly. However, that doesnt help the rest of the phone... Which is butt ugly. I just bought a red Nokia 920 yesterday and my wife got the California Blue 8X.

Samsung is starting to get into that every device has to look like another device. This is nothing more than a Droid Charge running Windows. Its the same phone released to ATT, the original Samsung Focus running Windows Phone 7.

All they did was change the casing on the back and add some better hardware.
I would have preferred a 4.3 Galaxy class device running Windows. They could have called it the Galaxy S ATIV.

I thought that Odyssey was the codename for the ATIV S...how wrong I was.
And this one does have LTE, WTF? If the rest of the specs match the ATIV S I'm buying this one instead.

Why does Verizon stick a huge logo in front of every phone... Didn't anyone tell them that it makes the phone look horrendous. A small logo, if at all, should be something they should go for.

Don't the other carriers have a logo on the front as well? I'm pretty sure AT&T does. In the end though, I think they should just have it on the back like they do and leave it at that.

Yeah, I don't like them sticking a logo in front at all... The AT&T globe is fine to an extent since its small and does not look that bad unless they stick in the AT&T text as well...

What that **** is that? It looks like a Focus. What happened to the "ATIV S" we saw a couple months ago?

I think between the carriers and OEMs, their is a conspiracy to will Windows Phone.

It was said back on Oct 29th that the Ativ S will go on sale in December. I dunno why it's so late but I guess Samsung doesn't know what it wants to make and sell first at this point, probably put all it's work into the Galaxy Note II which is now on sale.

Haha but but...i like my focus! =( I actually don't like the back of it =P

Seeing as i'm going to put a case on it, I could see myself going for this if it isn't the same price as the L920. High res screen, large-ish, and 4G LTE - hope the camera isnt rubbish.
