Even though Qualcomm is reportedly swamped with Snapdragon S4 orders, it apparently found some space to sell its processor to KT Tech, a direct subsidiary of the KT Corporation which runs a mobile network in South Korea. KT Tech is using Qualcomm’s processor in its new Take LTE (KM-100) smartphone that will soon be offered to the general public in South Korea.
Aside from rocking a dual-core Snapdragon S4 clocked at 1.5GHz, KT’s upcoming device also comes with LTE connectivity support, 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, 1.3-megapixel front-facing one, 4.5-inch 720p HD screen, 8GB of built-in memory, 1GB of RAM, NFC, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, memory card slot and a fairly impressive 2.040mAh battery. In addition, there’s also a mobile TV tuner on board, which is a must-have feature for every decent phone sold on the Korean peninsula.
All said, we’re easily talking about the best carrier-branded device released to date. No words whether KT will ever launch the Take LTE outside of South Korea and somehow I doubt that will happen… though you never know. 😉
