Pantech introduced their first smartphone that has an HD touchscreen in the US just last month, in the form of the Pantech Discover for AT&T. Well, it seems that the smartphone company intends to gain a larger footprint in the lower-midrange handset market without breaking the bank with yet another variant of the Pantech Discover, coming in the form of the Pantech Perception for Verizon Wireless. Needless to say, it will also be priced to please, and it the Pantech Perception has already arrived at the FCC, gaining approval in the process – meaning, it should soon be ready for public purchase.
The FCC did snap photos of the Pantech Perception from various angles, and the overall build quality does seem to lean more towards the high end side of things. There were no Verizon branding spotted in the FCC photos, but chances are pretty high that this will change when the Pantech Perception is finally released. We do expect to see such Verizon livery located above the screen, and the back area should see it stamped near the 4G LTE logo. Rumored hardware specifications of the Pantech Perception consist of a 720p HD touchscreen, a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, and perhaps it will arrive before the end of next month.
