vega-secret-note-wBack in 2013, Pantech announced the Vega Secret Note handset, which by all accounts appeared to be a competitor to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. The handset is powerful in its own right, but it looks like with the Vega Note’s successor, Pantech could be stepping things up.

According to reports out of South Korea, it has been suggested that Pantech could be one of the first few Android OEMs to come to the market with a device packing Qualcomm’s 64-bit chipset, the Snapdragon 810. This isn’t Qualcomm’s first 64-bit efforts, although it will be the company’s first 64-bit chipset from its 800-series.

Interestingly enough despite Qualcomm’s expectations that we will see 64-bit Snapdragon 810 handsets in the first half of 2015, the reports from Korea suggests that the Vega Note’s successor will be released in the second half of 2014 with the 64-bit chipset on board. Perhaps Pantech will be beating everyone to the punch, or perhaps the reports are wrong.

The rumors of the Pantech Vega Note’s successor is also said to pack a 6-inch 2560×1440 display, joining the likes of the LG G3, Oppo Find 7, and Vivo Xplay 3S to feature a QHD display. However the downside to this is that Pantech’s releases are typically limited to South Korea, so there’s no telling if the company will release the Vega Note’s successor stateside, but either way we will be keeping our eyes peeled.
