Samsung Odyssey and Marco WP8 smartphones break cover in court documents

In the ongoing legal battle between Samsung and Apple, court documents now reveal the existence of two upcoming Windows Phone 8 devices codenamed "Odyssey" and "Marco." Both are depicted as running on the Qualcomm MSM8960 chipset, which is a powerful dual-core system-on-a-chip currently being used by Microsoft itself to test WP8 software.

The Samsung Marco is said to feature a 4-inch S-AMOLED WVGA touchscreen display and a 5-megapixel main camera. Meanwhile, the Samsung Odyssey is listed as having a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen display, an 8-megapixel camera and built-in NFC. Both phones will also be LTE-capable and are scheduled to arrive some time in Q4 2012. Apparently, even with all the distractions it has to put up with in court, Samsung isn't about to stop trying to stay on top of its game by putting out new devices.

- Samsung is currently involved in a legal dispute with Apple over various patent issues concerning the Galaxy series of tablets and smartphones.
