The trial between Apple and Samsung has revealed many secrets about both companies, including early iPhone prototypes, what Steve Jobs thought about a 7in iPad, and now, Samsung's plan to launch two Windows 8 devices before year end.

The 'Odyssey' and 'Marco' Windows Phone 8 devices are marked as running the Qualcomm MSM8960 chipset in leaked court documents, reports The Verge. They will also have a dual-core 1.5GHz system-on-chip.

The Odyssey has been described by Samsung as an "iconic smartphone," and is set to have a 4.65in HD display and an 8-megapixel rear camera. It's listed as having NFC technology, which could be used in conjunction with Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 Wallet Hub and Tap + Send features. Apple is also expected to introduce NFC to its next generation iPhone.

The Marco appears to be a slightly smaller device with a 4in display and a 5-megapixel rear camera, the court documents reveal. Both phones will have 4G LTE capabilities too.
