Images of Verizon exclusive Samsung ATIV Odyssey appear on Twitter

Published by at

An image of Verizon's exclusive Windows Phone 8 device, the Samsung ATIV Odyssey, has been posted to Twitter by @evleaks. The device, which was mentioned by Verizon in its Windows Phone 8 press release, but not officially unveiled, is expected to be available before the end of the year.

The Samsung ATIV Odyssey is expected to be a variant of the Samsung ATIV S. The image backs this up with similarly positioned buttons, camera, and microSD card slot, but the two devices should still be visually distinctive, thanks to a subtly different shape and materials selection.

@evleaks has previously posted images of multiple handsets ahead of their official announcement, including all the second generation Lumia devices, but as ever until the official announcement comes this is unconfirmed.
