After letting Samsung rule the early adopter LTE-A market in Korea for a month, Pantech and LG are about ready join the next generation wireless standard game.
LG will announce their new LG G2 flagship tomorrow, while Pantech unveiled its 5.6” Vega LTE-A phablet today.
Pantech Vega LTE-A has all the specs you would expect from top of the line flagship:
Snapdragon 800 2.3 GHz quad-core CPU
LTE-A support (up to 150 Mbps)
Android 2.2.2 Jelly Bean OS
5.6” Full HD (1920×1080) IPS LCD display
2 GB of RAM
13 megapixel rear, 2.1 megapixel front camera
3100 mAh battery
Pantech Vega LTE –A also comes with an integrated fingerprint reader on its back, and fast charging technology, which will fully charge the 3100 mAh in 94 minutes.
Pantech Vega LTE-A will go on sale next week and will be exclusive to SK Telecom until September at least. And, knowing Pantech’s lack of international ambitions, will most likely remain exclusively Korean product after that.
