T-Mobile set to get Samsung Odyssey with Windows Phone 8, LTE?
It looks like Samsung may have inadvertently leaked their upcoming Windows Phone 8 device for peppy T-Mobile. And if accurate, fans will be very excited.
The info comes from Samsung's wap.samsungmobile.com site which notoriously shows upcoming devices before they are announced...
The Odyssey or SGH-T899 packs some powerful specifications, according to the info buried in the document:
- 4.65” Super AMOLED HD screen (1280x720)
- LTE, HSPA+ 21 (supports HSPA+ 42 too)
- 8MP Rear camera; 720P Front-facing camera
- MSM8960 (dual-core 1.5GHz) chip
The phone is confirmed as running Internet Explorer 10 as found on Windows Phone 8 and hints to the device’s ID as being T-Mobile’s first Apollo and LTE device. Although T-Mobile is not expecting to have a massive LTE network to match AT&T or Verizon’s coverage anytime soon, it’s sure nice to see them making this device “future proof” from the start.
The rest of the specifications should also make many folks happy—unless of course you’re waiting on a flagship Nokia device. For that, we’ll just have to wait.
