Pantech is a South Korean device maker that hasn’t been doing very well over the last years, because of financial problem. Now they seem to be preparing a new phone, that feels familiar, as it resembles and may well be a rebranded version of the Hisense Jingang II C20.
The device runs Android 5.1 Lollipop, based on a 64 bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 415 processor, an octa core unit clocked at 1.4 GHz. There’s a 5 inch 720p IPS LCD display among the specs, as well as a 13 megapixel camera at the back and a front 5 MP shooter. LTE Category 4 is available as well, with up to 150 Mbps download speed.
Since this is a dual SIM smartphone, it comes with two micro SIM card slots and also on the connectivity front, there’s Bluetooth 4.0 and WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac. Pantech V950 packs 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage and it’s a dustproof and waterproof model, available in white or black. Priced at $269, at least in the Hisense version, this Pantech unit could actually be made by the Chinese company.
It’s going to be sold on the Indonesian and Vietnamese markets, among others.
