Samsung Illusion and Pantech Breakout – Verizon to Introduce Two New Affordable 4G LTE Phones?


Looks like Verizon may be set to introduce another set of mid-range 4G LTE phones following news earlier that the Samsung Stratosphere wouldn’t be all that it’s cracked up to be. PocketNow has received press shots of two phones said to be headed for Verizon.

Firstly, the Pantech Breakout will be their first 4G phone from that OEM. It’s rumored to be a 4 inch device with a 4 inch WVGA display, a 5 megapixel camera, a 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM. With that, it could be priced competitively but considering how expensive other LTE phones have been from them, we can’t say for certain it’ll hit that sub-$200 mark.

We’ve also got the Samsung Illusion. This one looks like it could be a 3.5 inch WVGA device. Internals are unknown for now, but a single-core processor in the 800MHz-1GHz range would sound about right.

It’ll also have TouchWiz, though no word on which version of Android will run beneath it. It should only be a matter of weeks before Verizon announce these and likely many more. [PocketNow]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Haven’t you learned Samsung?
    Stop making shit phones

    1. How about Verizon? Buy phones that people want to have. Haven’t you learned anything?


      1. Clearly people want the phones or the droid 3 wouldn’t be back-ordered. not to mention if people didn’t like their phones they wouldn’t be the largest us carrier.

        1. To a lot of people, service is more important than status symbol. That’s why Verizon is the largest, not their “top quality” phones. They have always had substandard phones that nobody likes.

          1. If service was more important than so many people wouldt have stayed with at&t since they have substandard service in many areas. You are a hated substandard phones? Droid, Droid inc, Droid x,3 you’re right nobody wants any of those phones. Smh they don’t have a top of the line line up right now but you saying they have phones nobody likes is funny. It isn’t about service for many its about phones.

  2. Is it just me or does the Illusion kinda look like a re-branded Galaxy S?

  3. stop hating on att.. there is nothing with them i left verizon for same reason ty.

  4. I hate Verizon’s phones but unfortunately am stuck because they do have the best reception where I live. As soon as reception is decent with another provider- I am gone!

  5. Come on Verizon!! Still no dual-core phones with 4G!? Its like you keep shating on a stick and try to sell it off as a corn dog.
