The Pantech Flex AT&T price and release date details have been made official by its maker. This Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone is slated to arrive with 4G LTE support on September 16 with a price tag of $49.99 and a two-year agreement with the network carrier.
One of the highlights of the device is that it proffers its buyers with an option to choose between the usual operating mode and a simplified version of the same which is said to be aimed at new smartphone users. Called the Easy Experience mode, this method organizes apps on the home screen for quick access.
Jeff Bradley, senior vice president, Devices and Developer Services, AT&T Mobility, explained “The Pantech Flex is a great phone because of its versatility. This phone simplifies the smartphone experience and allows someone who has been hesitant to buy a smartphone a chance to get familiar with it at their own pace, and still leaves open the possibility of having the more traditional experience.”
Along with a slice of the Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS, this device also offers a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display, and runs on a 1.5GHz dual-core processor. It has been equipped with the SwiftKey keyboard technology which adapts to typing preferences, offering users a tailored experience. Besides, an 8MP rear camera with 1080p HD video recording capabilities and a 2MP front facing snapper also form part of the handset’s range of features.
