Among quite a few other handsets Verizon is expected to release this month (Bliss, Vigor, Enlighten, Stratosphere, etc.) are the Samsung Illusion and Pantech Breakout LTE. As its name implies, Breakout is a 4G-capable slate tipped as having a four-inch WVGA screen and 1GHz single-core processor; a five-megapixel camera, front-facing webcam, and 512MB of memory are also rumored features. One of the highlights is said to be Breakout’s tethering prowess: supposedly it can perform as a mobile hotspot for up to 10 devices simultaneously over LTE.

Samsung Illusion


Less is known about the Illusion, although we suspect it’s the device that’s been going by model number SCH-i110, which would make it an entry-level, Gem-type phone. If that is the case, we’re probably looking at an 800MHz processor (although 1GHz is not out of the question), HVGA resolution, and a three- or five-megapixel camera.

Breakout should launch any day now (it’s already late according to a leaked roadmap), while Illusion will likely come closer to the end of the month.
