Pantech Vega Pop Up Note 01While most of us might be familiar with South Korean brands like Samsung and LG, there are a few more others that might not be as familiar in the US. One of those brands is Pantech and while the company has released a couple of phones in the US, for the most part their releases tend to be exclusive to South Korea.

However they do make some pretty interesting products and according to a recent report (via Blog of Mobile), it seems that Pantech could be working on a new phablet device that could be giving Samsung’s Galaxy Note series of phablets a run for its money. The device is apparently named the Pop Up Note, although its exact launch remains something of a mystery.

In any case according to the report, the Pop Up Note is said to sport a 5.5-inch Full HD 1080p display. It is also said to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 801 chipset clocked at 2.3GHz and will be accompanied by 2GB of RAM. There will be a 13MP rear-facing camera, a 2MP front-facing camera, and will feature LTE connectivity.

If anything those specs are comparable to that of the Galaxy Note 3, although if the rumors about the Galaxy Note 4 are to be believed, it could easily leave Pantech’s Pop Up Note in the dust. There has been no mention of whether the Pop Up Note will make its way stateside and while it does seem unlikely, we’ll keep our eyes peeled anyway.
