Samsung planning at least two dual-core Windows Phone 8 devices During their ongoing court battle with Apple, Samsung has revealed plans for at least two dual-core Windows 8 phones.
Codenamed 'Odyssey' and 'Marco,' each of the phones will run on a 1.5GHz Qualcomm MSM8960 chip; the same chip Microsoft has been using to test the OS.

Samsung called the 'Odyssey' an 'iconic smartphone and the documents show the device featuring a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED display with 720p resolution and an 8MP standard camera.

Furthermore, the device will support NFC, including Microsoft's Wallet Hub and Tap + Send.

The Marco will be a lower-end phone, with a 4-inch S-AMOLED display with WVGA resolution and a 5MP camera.

Both have LTE and will launch when Windows Phone 8 does in November.
