Entry-level Pantech Flex from AT&T packs dual-core processor

AT&T and Pantech recently announced an entry-level and budget-friendly smartphone. Named as the Pantech Flex, the new device may be inexpensive, but it looks good on paper.

What You Need To Know:

  • The Pantech Flex runs on Android 4.0 ICS. It is powered by an impressive 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and 1GB RAM. It also has a 4.3-inch display and 8MP camera.
  • The device also features the Easy Experience interface. It is a customized skin that assists first time smartphone owners to familiarize Android.
  • The device will be available starting September 16 for just $50 with a two-year contract.

Overall, if the build quality is decent, we might be looking at the best budget smartphone with LTE compatibility that AT&T currently has to offer: the screen is decently sized and offers a decent resolution, while the processor and GPU are the same as with the HTC One X (U.S. version) or the HTC One S (U.S. version). If Pantech did not screw up on the build quality, the Flex is one budget smartphone I’m going to have to recommend.
