Are you in the market for a new high-end smartphone, presumably one of the Android-powered variety? If you have answered in the affirmative, then do check out the Pantech Vega No. 6, which has just been released in South Korea last month without any word of a worldwide release afterwards, only to result in an announcement of it surfacing in Hong Kong that will see a $770 price tag attached to it after conversion.
Of course, forking out that kind of money would mean that you are walking away with an unlocked handset, and that would still be rather pricey for some. Do know what kind of bang you are getting for your buck though, as the Pantech Vega No. 6 will feature a massive 5.9” Full HD display, Android Jelly Bean, LTE and NFC support, a 13-megapixel shooter at the back with a 2-megapixel up front, a quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor that is aided by 2GB RAM and accompanied by 32GB of internal memory which can be further expanded thanks to a microSD memory card.
Pantech Vega Iron Spotted
Every company that rolls out smartphones ought to have flagship models that they can call their own, in order to be on par with the Joneses. Well, Pantech, one of the lesser known smartphone manufacturers from South Korea (after Samsung and LG, of course, considering how those two practically eclipse everyone else), does seem to have quite a beauty on their hands in the form of the Pantech Vega Iron which was spotted in the past, but here we are with actual photos of it (unofficial photos, of course).
Rumored specifications of the Pantech Vega Iron include a Full HD display without any noticeable bezel, with whispers of an April 18th launch. Interestingly enough, there seems to be a small cutout located at the upper-right corner which brings back memories of the HTC Rhyme, perhaps it is there for you to throw on a charm of your own? Will it even see action outside of its native country? Only time will tell, so stay tuned.
Pantech Vega No. 6 Hits South Korea
Another day, another smartphone hits the market that will further expand the Full HD smartphone family – which the Pantech Vega No. 6 would gladly participate in today. First making its rounds on the grapevine for the past week, it is finally official and good to go, having arrived in South Korea, although we do not know whether it will ever be released outside of the country or not. Assuming that it does, you might want to fork out a handsome amount for it, since it costs around $780 after conversion for an unlocked handset.
The Pantech Vega No. 6 would feature a 5.9” Full HD display, with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean in tow alongside Pantech’s very own user interface that it calls Flux UX, accompanied by connectivity options such as LTE, Wi-Fi and NFC. Camera options include a 13-megapixel shooter at the back and a 2-megapixel shooter in front, running on a quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and accompanied by 2GB RAM and 32GB of internal memory.
