The Pantech Discover is the newest smartphone from the manufacturer, but it’s a giant leap forward and a harbinger of what’s to come from Pantech as they move into the high-end smartphone realm. Featuring a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 CPU, Discover offers a 4.8-inch HD (720p) display, 12.6-megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording, 2,100 mAh battery, 4G LTE, and Android 4.0 with Pantech’s UI.

It’s coming to AT&T on January 11th for $49.99 with a two-year agreement. Despite being $150 cheaper than competing high-end devices, can it go head to head?
