Pantech could launch a 5 inch 1080p smartphone with a fingerprint scanner next month

Pantech Phablet
Teaser for the Pantech Vega Secret Note from October.

Pantech recently announced the Vega Secret Note with a large display and a fingerprint scanner on the back, similar to the HTC One Max. And the company is on its way to launch another smartphone with a fingerprint scanner according to a report from Korean source ET News. The Korean giant is reportedly working on a standard smartphone this time and not a phablet like the Secret Note.

There’s no word on what the smartphone will be called or what it will feature besides the 5 inch 1080p display and the fingerprint scanner, but it will allegedly break cover in December. Knowing Pantech, the smartphone will most likely remain exclusive to its home region of South Korea, but we won’t be surprised if the company plans a global rollout.

It’s easy to decipher that this new smartphone from Pantech will be marketed as a high end flagship, competing directly with the likes of LG and Samsung in Korea. Pricing will be crucial too, as Pantech is generally known for its low pricing. We hope to learn more about this smartphone in the coming days.
