The Pantech Perception is a name we have heard before. Of course, the catch with that is we have yet to hear anything official from Pantech or the expected carrier, which in this case happens to be Verizon Wireless. Instead the Pantech Perception details have include a few leaks along with an FCC filing. Details began leaking back in January, however that FCC filing was discovered towards the end of February.
Putting the previous details aside for a moment and it now looks like we have a potential release date. The date comes by way of @evleaks, who have said rather simply that the Pantech Perception will be “launching April 25th on Verizon.” Given the timing here, April 25 is less than a week away at this point, we suspect an official announcement will be arriving fairly soon.
On the flip side though, this could also be a handset that Verizon adds to the available lineup with little fanfare. Basically, that is to say the Perception is not a high-end device. The rumors have shown the Perception as sporting a 4.8-inch (1280 x 720) display and dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor with 1GB of RAM.
The FCC filing was light on the specifics, however it did show the Perception as having 4G LTE connectivity. But really, these days it would be more surprising if a Verizon handset didn’t have LTE. The filing did also have a series of images which revealed the handset as having an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera. All said and done, it looks like it is about time for Verizon to come forward with some official release details.
