It looks like Pantech has beaten all other smartphone manufacturers with their largest smartphone ever made. Pantech in South Korea has just unveiled the Vega No. 6. Nevermind the weird name, but this behemoth of a smartphone sports a 5.9-inch 1080p screen display in full HD (1920×1080) resolutions. With that, the handset has earned the title of being the world’s largest smartphone to date.
Aside from its large screen display, the Pantech Vega also boasts of some nice specs including 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean OS, Flux UX which is Pantech’s own UI, 2MP front-facing camera, 13MP rear camera, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, LTE, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory, microSD card support and a large 3,140 mAh battery.
For those who are unaware (like myself,) Pantech has launched another large smartphone last year, the Vega R3. Although this handset never reached the mainstream market, it was however a big success in South Korea. Will the Pantech Vega No. 6 surpass its achievement? Only time can tell. Perhaps if Pantech manages to make the device available in other international markets.
All that being said, the Pantech Vega No.6 is schedule to be released in South Korea anytime in February. This shall be through the three South Korean carriers namely, SK Telecom, KT and LG U+. Retail price is said to be around $776. Now Pantech, care to release the Vega No. 6 outside South Korea? With its specs and features, your handset could very well compete against the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and other so-called “phablets.”
