Verizon Pantech Breakout 4G LTE-capable Smartphone Spotted

September 17, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The 4G LTE smartphone Pantech Breakout has not been launched yet, but the device has begun to make appearance in the Verizon Wireless stores. Sporting a four-inch display and a 1 GHz single core CPU, the Breakout will be the fifth LTE Smartphone from Big Red, with Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

The Breakout will appeal to entry level customers in the 4G LTE bandwagon as a very capable, yet affordable, device. You can expect a download speed up to ten times faster than 3G speeds.

Among Verizon’s LTE capable offerings, which include HTC Thunderbolt, Samsung Droid Charge, LG Revolution and the Motorola Droid Bionic, the Breakout may be the most compact device.

The other devices boast a 4.3 inch WVGA resolution or HD resolution display. The device has Pantech’s UI overlay and physical Android navigation buttons, like the Droid Charge.

It seems the Breakout will not get the premium packing experience, unlike the other 4G LTE phones. The device will come in a standard grey box, like most Verizon Smartphones.

There you have it, a low-cost mobile on Verizon’s 4G LTE, with obvious compromises – specs-wise. Will you go for it? Or will you save up to get a full featured Droid Bionic?
