The Pantech Perception
was first brought to our attention in January
when the device leaked. We didn't get a complete list of specs for the phone back then, and despite a visit to the FCC, we still do not have a screen size for the device, which will have a resolution of 720 x 1280. We also know that the device will be powered by a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor. If you look at the photo of the back of the device, you can see Verizon's 4G LTE logo
, so we know exactly where this phone is headed. Speculation is that it will launch sometime next month.
The FCC took some pictures of the device (see below) and we can just imagine the giant corkboard in the office with pictures of countless handsets thumb tacked up. Ah, the life of an FCC mobile phone examiner. Lunch with the Samsung Galaxy S III
one day, dinner at Morton's with the Apple iPhone 5
the next evening. One day, we're sure to see a scandalous book from one of the examiners detailing his jet set life with the smartphones.
