Benchmark test scores of the upcoming Pantech IM-A830S (likely a codename) reveal that the manufacturer is ready to step up its game with a high-end handset of its own.
The flaghsip it will pit against the HTC One X
, LG Optimus 4X HD
and so on, will feature a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chipset of the MSM8960 variety, meaning LTE will also be on board as part of an integrated miltimode solution.
Pantech IM-A830S will also sport an HD display of unknown size with 720x1280 pixels of resolution, with some of these pixels reserved for Android 4.0 on-screen navigational buttons
, since the resolution is listed as 720x1196.
The phone is pretty certain to appear on South Korea's SK-Telecom first, as that's what the model number suggests, but it's a hint what we might be getting stateside from Pantech as well. If the Pantech Vega LTE
is any indication, we might also be getting some sort of gesture-based navigation as well.
