Many of the high-end smartphones currently operating on AT&T are manufactured by HTC, Samsung, and LG.  However, if you are a customer on AT&T who wants something powerful, yet inexpensive, then the Pantech Discover may be just the device for you.

During AT&T’s CES 2013 press conference, the Pantech Discover was announced.  In terms of launch date and availability, the Android 4.0 smartphone will be available for purchase starting January 11 for just $49.99 on a two year contract.

In terms of hardware and specs, the Discover boasts a 4.8 inch 720p display, 12.6MP rear facing camera, 16GB of internal memory, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, NFC, 2100 mAh battery, and LTE connectivity.  The camera is certainly one of the Discover’s stronger features, but it does offer solid hardware.

A $50 price tag is great for budget-conscious smartphone shoppers.  Hopefully, there is an upgrade to Android 4.1 in its future, although the press release does not mention anything about Jelly Bean.
