Following the R3 and S5, Pantech, the third largest phone maker in South Korea just behind Samsung and LG, has unveild a new Vega super phone with a huge display. The Vega No.6 (model IM-A860S/K/L) features a 5.9-inch 1920×1080 Full HD touchscreen display, making it the largest 1080p smartphone on the market. Currently, most 1080p phones such as DROID DNA/J Butterfly and Xperia Z comes in 5-inch screen size, and Lenovo’s super slim K900 is a little smaller at 5.5-inch.
In addition to the huge display, the Vega No.6 also features Pantech’s V Touch technology featuing a touchpad on the back (as you can see in the picture above, there is a small touchpad just below the camera lens) for easy one-hand operation and navigation without blocking the screen.
Pantech’s new Full HD Vega also packs impressive hardware specs. It is boosted by a Qualcomm SnapDragon S4 Pro quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM, and features a 13 Megapixel rear camera, 2 Megapixel front-facing camera, 32GB internal storage and a microSD card slot. The handset is LTE-capable for high-speed mobile data and supports Bluetooth and WiFi. It runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with Pantech’s custom Flux UX user interface.
The Vega No.6 will be available in South Korea in February from SK Telecom, KT and LG U+ at about $780. It doesn’t look like Pantech has a plan for international release of the huge phablet device.
