Leaked images show two new Verizon smartphones
Two upcoming Verizon handsets were just leaked over at PocketNow. The Pantech Breakout LTE is the more advanced device, with LTE network support and a four-inch 480x800 screen. It will likely be a rare budget 4G Android phone and sport a 1GHz, single-core processor along with 512MB or RAM.
It's also said to get a hotspot feature for tethering up to 10 devices. Otherwise, it's expected to get a five-megapixel rear camera and a front-facing shooter as well.
The Samsung Illusion has more question marks surrounding its specs, though it's more of a feature phone. Its model number, SCH-i110, suggests it's a Gem-type device and at Samsung's entry-level range of devices. It will sport either an 800MHz or 1GHz CPU and probably an HVGA (320x480) resolution for its touchscreen. The integrated camera should sport either three or five megapixels.
The Breakout is expected to arrive at Verizon presently, with the Illusion arriving before month's end. Pricing for either isn't yet known.
