Pantech has been known for their dumbphone offerings, but lately they’ve been taking the budget Android market by storm. And I have to admit, their budget phones can be pretty good (our own Joey Lehto enjoyed his time with the Marauder). However, they may just be making a high end phone, or mid end at the very least.
This phone seems to be made for AT&T, codenamed the Magnus. It will have NFC and Bluetooth 4.0, thanks to an FCC filing. But now we know a few of the internal specs, thanks to a benchmark that showed up on Rightware. It will have a dual core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 with an Adreno 225 GPU, a very capable and high end chip. No underclocking here. Not only that, but it will sport an HD display. The resoltuion is stated as 720×1196, meaning it probably has some form of on screen keys paired with its ICS install (we assume). Altogether, this seems like a very capable phone. Tell us, what do you think? Would you be willing to buy a high end Pantech phone? Tell us in the comments!
