We first heard about the Pantech Perception back in September, when it made its appearance in a leaked Verizon roadmap. Since then, the Verizon-headed device has done little to stay hidden by showing all its details in leaks and FCC filings. We are no longer impressed to see it coming, but if you are still waiting for it you may be happy to know the rumored release date is April 25th.
This is next week from this post’s publishing date, meaning the announcement should be just ahead (or Verizon is simply planning to release it without much hype). We can’t imagine many Verizon customers will be too excited by de device’s specs, though.
It would have been beast of a device last September, but by now its rumored specs are old news. It should have a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 1 GB of RAM and a 4.8-inch 720p HD display.
Considering everything, we expect the Pantech Perception to come with a very fair price. We can see it coming as a great affordable smartphone with a large screen and fair performance. It will probably act like a mid-tier device but be “perceived” as a better one.
