Verizon is adding phone after phone to its network, in a bid to keep the existing consumers rich with gadget options and to lure more potential consumers from other networks. According to rumors, the latest one to be included to the Big Red network is Pantech Star Q 4G LTE.
The device succeeds the Pantech Breakout that was live on the network last year. Just like its predecessor, the new rig also aims at the low-end market where people love getting a phone for virtually no cost. So it is expected to hit the network for a $99 on contract.
It runs on Android Ice Cream Sandwich, though everybody is waiting for Jelly Bean updates. It has a dual-core S4 Snapdragon processor, running at a clock speed of 1.5 GHz. The device packs a 4 inch WVGA display.
Cameras are also low-end with the major one having just a 3 mega pixel sensor while the front facing cameras is just efficient enough to aid video calls.
However, texting crazy will love its slide-out landscape oriented full QWERTY physical keyboard. The low-end gadget also packs Bluetooth 4.0.
To be frank, the S4 Snapdragon dual core processor chip at 1.5 GHZ speed and the ICS will give a best experience, on par with many high-end devices. However, the camera and display are not very encouraging.
Though the launch date is yet to be made public, a bunch of pictures have already hit the internet and NenaMark benchmark results for the device has already been leaked.
