Pantech Perception for Verizon leaked


Pantech had a big announcement to make with AT&T earlier this week, but it looks like the OEM will have some noise to make with Verizon very soon, too. The latest leak delivers us our first look at the Pantech Perception, a phone which should attract quite a few eyes if suspicion of a sub-$100 price tag is accurate.

Pantech’s device will employ a 720p display, Qualcomm’s 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor and more. We’re quite certain you can expect 4G LTE radios inside this thing, and 1GB of RAM wouldn’t be far off the mark either. It’s tough to say what else to expect, though, so we won’t play the guessing game too much.

The Pantech Marauder, Verizon’s current offering from the South Korean manufacturer, wasn’t too much of a looker, but Pantech has stepped its game up as of late and is looking to position its smartphones in a premium space without the typical premium price. It’s a great strategy to help break into a fierce North American market, but only time will tell if consumers respond the way Pantech expects.

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. the walmart of phones.

  2. The picture looks exactly like the Galaxy Nexus!

    1. … how so?

      1. Physically. Of course, the Galaxy Nexus doesn’t say Verizon or Pantech, but it’s the same shape / proportions.

    2. The physical shape of the device perhaps… but the horrible skin doesn’t at all.

  3. I have the maruader, since my Droid 4 broke. I must say it’s built pretty sturdy and the replaceable battery is awesome.

  4. that status bar is so ugly… ruins the rest of the phone

    1. A status bar is a status bar. I don’t see anything unique here.

    2. Are you referring to the notification bar or the dock? If it’s the dock you can always dl a launcher like Nova or Go and change the theme. If it’s the notification bar you can, for the most part, pick and choose what to display on it, but it’s what you get on all Androids.

      1. notification bar
