Besides having 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display, the phone will include an 8-megapixel HD rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera and 16GB internal storage. The phone will also boast “global ready” capabilities and 4G LTE connectivity.
In addition, Pantech Perception will feature a modified User Interface (UI) with a custom Motion Sense technology, which will allow users to change songs, answer phone calls, scroll contacts and flip through pictures with simple hand gestures and no screen fondling required.
