Pantech is South Korea's third-largest smartphone maker, but the company's latest handset is almost two years old. They had to go through a few tough years and now, after being bought by Optis and Solid in late 2015, thus being saved from bankruptcy, they are back with a new Android smartphone.

Dubbed Sky IM-100, this handset is a premium mid-ranger that is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor that supports the APT-X codec and provides high-quality sound on both Bluetooth speakers and headphones. The phone has 2 GB RAM, is powered by a 3000 mAh battery, and features a whirlkey that can be used to control volume and sort though multimedia content. The retail package includes a wireless charger/Bluetooth speaker hybrid dubbed Stone.

Although the official product page does not reveal all the technical details yet, ZDNet reveals that the full-metal handset comes in white or black, having a price tag of $380 USD. Although it will not get outside South Korea via the official channels, the Sky IM-100 would be an interesting choice for Western buyers looking for a phone that brings something original to the table.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
