Back in October, Pantech announced their own phablet for the South Korean market in the form of the Pantech Vega Secret Note. The device appeared to take on the likes of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 and according to the latest figures, it shows that despite the device seemingly looking like a copycat, it has gone on to do pretty well for itself and has managed to sell about 200,000 units in just a month from its launch. This is compared to the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 which according to reports was not as well received in their own country, although its sales figures of 5 million units in a month is still pretty impressive.
We’re not sure if Pantech ever plans on bringing the Vega Secret Note to the US, and while 200,000 compared to 5 million is a pretty huge gap, we reckon it should be enough to give the company enough confidence to improve and perhaps release an even better successor. For those wondering, Pantech’s phablet offering will pack a 5.9” Full HD display with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset under its hood. It will also be accompanied by a 13MP camera, 3GB of RAM, and stylus support. Not too shabby, huh?
