The Windows Phone 8 device rumour train is in overdrive... Remember the two devices that were leaked through court documents - the Odyssey and the Marco? The latest rumour is consistent with the previous leak as it names two devices The two devices will be the I8370 (Marco) and the I8750 (Odyssey).
The Samsung I8370 will be the cheaper device, sporting a 4.0-inch Super AMOLED WVGA screen, a dual-core 1.5GHz Krait processor, a 5 MP rear shooter, a 1.9MP front camera and 8GB internal storage which will be expandable via a microSD slot. The Samsung I8570 specifications are identical to the Galaxy S III, featuring a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED HD screen, a 1.5GHz dual-core Krait, an 8MP rear and a 1.9MP front cameras. The I8750 comes with two options for the internal storage - 16 or 32 GB. Further expansion can be achieved via the microSD slot.
Both devices have Omnia model numbers which would suggest that they will be the "rest of the world" models. The I8370 will probably end up as the Samsung Omnia 8, with the I8750 being the Samsung Omnia S. We also expect both devices to find their way to America - under different guises with LTE.
Both devices should be released in Q4 this year with the I8370 price being somewhere between €350 and €450 while the I8570 should go for something between €500 and €600.
