Eager Verizon fans may have already pre-ordered their next Windows Phone, but those who wait will have a new phone to look forward to this December. Verizon has remained mum about the recently announced ATIV Odyssey, not even releasing a photo let along pricing.
Fortunately @evleaks on Twitter was there to pick up on the carriers' slack and has provided us the first render of the Verizon-exclusive Windows Phone 8 device. Our first reaction? It looks exactly like the Samsung Focus from the front. In fact we think the two look so alike, we've created a comparison of the two devices together after the break (in case you don't see it).
Beyond initial impressions we can see a few other elements around the phone. There's what looks like a front-facing camera, a rear camera with LED flash, the power and camera buttons sticking out from the right side, the volume buttons along the left side as well as what looks like a door to a MicroSD expansion slot.
We can't tell what size the phone is, but comparing the overall device to the size of the buttons on the sides it may not have a screen larger than 4.3-inches. Also based on the aspect ratio of the screen, we can guess it will either have a 800x480 or 1280x768 resolution (1280x720 would look skinnier/taller). This is all guesswork on our part, so don't take it as fact.
Regardless, this is our best bet as to what the ATIV Odyssey will look like come December and @evleaks has had a stellar record so far (particularly with Verizon-bound devices). Are you still interested after seeing this render?
