Pantech’s not exactly a major player when it comes to smartphones and vanilla cell phones, but that doesn’t mean they can’t roll out a potential gem once in a while. The Pantech Vega X (sounds intimidating, that’s for sure) is one example – this Android 2.2 Froyo-powered smartphone will arrive in South Korea later this week via KT and LG Telecom, where it will feature a 4-inch WVGA touchscreen display, a 5-megapixel autofocus camera and a 1GHz Snapdragon MSM8255 processor. The outstanding thing about the Vega X would be the inclusion of DDR2 memory, making it the first of the Android phones to do so. Basically, Pantech claims that this will result in 1.5 faster performance compared to previous smartphones that use DDR1 memory instead. We’re stoked to see what kind of figures performance benchmarks will yield with this new memory.
