Korean manufacturer Pantech isn’t exactly the most popular smartphone maker in the world, being overshadowed by bigger and powerful corporations like Samsung and LG in the mobile industry. However, it seems like the company has something big under wraps. Pantech has begun sending out invites for an event scheduled for October 10, while teasing a phablet. The image/invite reveals that the smartphone will be launched under the company’s Vega series of smartphones and will be known as the Pantech Vega Note, which sounds like a direct hit at the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. In all likelihood, the smartphone should remain a South Korean exclusive, but we might just see it launching on eBay or other online shops in due time.
The rumored specs sheet pegs a 5.9 inch 1080p display with stylus support, a possible 13MP camera on the back, a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 chipset, 2GB of RAM and Android 4.2.2. The teaser image also reveals a slot for what appears to be a fingerprint scanner on the back, which should be interesting to check out. As it is marketed towards the Korean markets, it’s imperative that there would be LTE-A support included with the smartphone by default.
