Pantech Vega S5 announcedWhile there aren’t too many “large” phones like the Samsung Galaxy Note or LG Optimus Vu on the market today, it looks like we’ll be seeing one more soon. Also from a Korean company, Pantech, it’s called the Vega S5. It features a 720p 5″ display and packs a Qualcomm dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and a 13-megapixel rear camera. It’s bezel is also supposed to be the thinnest available out there. The phone packs a 2,100mAh battery with a touted 11-hours of talk time.

However, it looks like those of you not living in South Korea will be able to get your hands on the phone. Apparently Pantech will only be releasing the phone in its home country as an exclusive project with SK Telecom. If we do see it outside of South Korea, it’ll probably be rebranded as a different device. The Pantech Vega S5 will go up for pre-order for about $800 on July 4.
