Recently there has been a Pantech phone that has made it past the FCC under the name “Apache”. While there has been no word on the Apache, thanks to a leaked flyer we now know that there is another (or could be the same phone) Pantech phone called the Breakout that will be making its way to Verizon’s network.
The Breakout is a 4G LTE capable device and what makes it interesting is that according to the spec sheet above, users who constantly use their mobile devices as hotspots will be able to tether up to 10 devices onto Verizon’s 4G LTE network. Granted 10 devices leeching off your connection, despite its speediness, will result in slower speeds, but then again if you have many devices, or if you’d like the flexibility, then we guess that this is a good thing.
As far as the specs are concerned, according to the spec sheet, the Pantech Breakout will be featuring a 1GHz processor with 512MB of RAM and 390MB of internal storage, but will come preinstalled with an 8GB microSD card that will be able to support up to 32GB. It will also feature a display of 4” with a resolution of 800×480 and a 5MP rear camera with a VGA front facing camera.
It will be running on Android’s Gingerbread 2.3 and will feature a custom UI by Pantech. Based on those specs it doesn’t seem like a very high-end phone, so for those not willing to drop the cash on a high-end Android device may want to look into the Pantech Breakout. Unfortunately pricing and availability remain unknown at this point.
