Here is some good news for everyone on Verizon who can’t wait to get their paws on the Samsung ATIV Odyssey, it could be a week away. This little nugget of information comes from Twitter leakster @evleaks, who has a solid history of being accurate. He (she?) has shown off things in the past like these renders of the Lumia 920 or these of the Lumia 822 and charging pad.
Earlier today, @evleaks posted a render of the upcoming Samsung ATIV Odyssey with the caption:
“…should start to ship on the 24th “
It’s not official till we hear from Verizon, but it’s the best we have at this point. It will pack a Super AMOLED display (800x480) into a 4 inch body. You’ll also be treated to some rather ‘introductory’ smartphone specs, like a 5MP rear-facing camera, 8GB of on board storage and 1GB of RAM. Although you can expand your storage with something like a 64GB microSD card. Power comes from a 2100 mAh battery.
You can look for our review in the coming weeks. In the meantime, check out our hands-on from last week at CES. Anyone planning on potentially picking this little number up in a week?
