Pantech has chosen the way of showing it’s not to be taken lightly. The manufacturer is known as South Korea’s third largest handset maker and has some great products on offer in he States. Now Pantech is going to try the high-end Android market with its newest addition.
Pantech’s Vega No. 6 wants to be known as the first in some areas. It is one of the largest smartphones to date, with dimensions of 158.6 × 83.2 × 9.9 mm. The handset also packs a very large 5.9-inches screen – more then some phablet devices out there – and that is not even the best part. For such a great size the display offers 1080p Full HD resolution where the manufacturer’s own UI called Flux UX sits comfortably on top of Android.
The device runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean that should provide a great experience even though not the latest version of the OS. It is powered by a powered by a quad-core 1.5GHz Krait chipset and offers 2 GB of RAM – a configuration similar to devices like the Optimus G, Sony Xperia Z and Nexus 4. There is 32GB internal storage and a micro SD card slot along with Bluetooth, NFC, Wi-Fi, USB and LTE for connectivity. The smartphone features a 13 MP rear camera and a 2 MP from sensor. Unfortunately it is to remain exclusive to South Korea at a price of KRW849,000 (about €580/$780) SIM-free.
