South Korean manufacturers had a pretty big day today. While all eyes were on Samsung’s Galaxy S3 unveiling in London, Pantech decided to stay home and quietly announce the next entry into their flagshp – the Pantech Racer Vega 2. The device is fairly similar to the Galaxy S3 with a 4.8 inch HD display, a 2,020mAh battery, LTE radios, and Android 4.0, but it doesn’t have the quad-core processor.
It’s instead equipped with the Snapdragon S4. Oh, and it certainly doesn’t have TouchWiz 4.0 which has introduced some of the most innovative features you can find on mobile software. It’s a nice try, and it could do well, but it definitely doesn’t have the firepower to take down the Galaxy S3. The device launches starting in South Korea next week.
