While Pantech might not have the same amount of impact of fame compared to the likes of Samsung, HTC, LG, Sony, or Motorola, they do produce some pretty decent phones from time to time, and according to the reports, Pantech is set to announce a phablet device of their own along with stylus support come 10th of October. The device will be known as the Pantech Vega Note (IM-A890, not to be confused with the IM-A880S which sports similar features), and while its name might not be the most original or inspiring, it does pack some pretty impressive specs, which coupled with the right price could make it a decent alternative to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
The Pantech Vega Note is expected to sport a 5.9” Full HD 1080p display and will be powered by a 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset with 2GB of RAM. It will feature LTE-Advanced connectivity, meaning that those of you living in countries that have it, such as South Korea where Pantech is from, the Vega Note will be able to support it. Apart from that, the Vega Note will come with a stylus that stores itself in the phone, and will run on Android, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean to be specific. No word on pricing or availability just yet, but Pantech has released phones for the US market in the past, so it wouldn’t be out of the question if the Vega Note made its way stateside in the future as well.
