Samsung ATIV Odyssey picture leaks

A press shot of what is supposedly the Samsung ATIV Odyssey - Samsung's new Windows Phone 8 smartphone - as turned up on serial Twitter leaker Evleaks over the weekend.

The device, which Pocket-lint has already previously confirmed with Samsung will be a re-badged Samsung ATIV S, is expected to launch on Verizon in the US before the end of the year.

The ATIV S is expected to launch in the UK in the coming weeks - rumours suggest 10 December - and will sport a 8.7mm brushed-aluminum chassis and a huge 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display made from Corning Gorilla Glass 2. It's powered by a 1.5Ghz dual-core processor, with 1GB of on-board RAM, an 8MP autofocus rear camera and 1.9MP front-facing camera. 

The physical design looks to have changed according to the press shot, with the physical home button beneath the screen becoming touch sensitive instead, if the images are to be believed.

EVleaks has leaked a number of press shots in the past, with most of them proving to be the real deal.
