Both of the new phones are marked as sporting Qualcomm's MSM8960 chipset, which is a dual-core 1.5GHz system-on-chip (SoC) that Microsoft have been using in order to test Windows Phone 8. Samsung have described their Odyssey device as an "Iconic smartphone", which will sport a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED display with HD resolution, as well as an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera.

 

Samsung have nodded that the Odyssey will be an NFC-enabled device, which could see it working with Microsoft's upcoming Wallet Hub and Tap + Send features that will arrive with Windows Phone 8. Samsung's Marco will include a 4-inch S-AMOLED screen with WVGA resolution and a 5-megapixel rear camera. Both phones will be LTE-compatible, and hopefully launch sometime in Q4 2012, the current quarter that is the rumored Windows Phone 8 release date.
