Pantech Pop Up Note coming soon to compete with Samsung's Galaxy Note?
Pantech, South Korea’s third largest smartphone maker, is seemingly getting ready to introduce a new extra-large handset called Pop Up Note (model number IM-A920S).

Not long ago, we heard that Pantech’s next-generation Note may use a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor. However, it doesn’t look like that’s the case with the Pop Up Note (pictured on the left). While the device does feature a Qualcomm chipset, it’s just a Snapdragon 801 clocked at 2.3GHz. Sure enough, that’s still a very powerful processor, but it’s no match for the newer Snapdragon 810.

Reportedly, the Pantech Pop Up Note also features Android KitKat, a 5.5-inch 1080p display, LTE, 13MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, and 2GB of RAM. The handset comes with a special stylus, and that’s why it can be seen as a competitor to Samsung’s well-known Galaxy Note line.

The Pop Up Note should be announced by Pantech in the near future, likely as a South Korea-only device. Pantech might want to consider releasing it in other countries, though the company doesn’t have the power and financial liberty that Samsung has - so it would probably find it difficult to market the new handset as a Galaxy Note alternative.

That home button, phone design, and calling it Note. It's like they're not even trying to hide the fact that they're copying.

Yeah, I mean that's basically the sleeker and larger version of Galaxy S5 with smaller bezels and more angled areas.

There arent any phones that can compete with the Note 3. Would be nice to see some new phones that can do exactly that.

Pantech is pretty huge in Korea and they launch great phones over there..Pantech has the Secret Note, i think this is the name, that competes with Samsung and LG in terms of phablets, released last year.
People are mistaken thinking Pantech is "just another company", cuz they dont go worldwide and when they do, they just release medium to low class phones.
Over ther is totally different....very cool phones, high class and expensive.

Samsung is devoting everything that they can into the Galaxy Note 4. I don't think this device can do much for Pantech unless it comes with a very, very cheap price.

What's that button on the back? BTW I hope Pantech uses a Snapdragon 805 or 615.

The vega iron 2 seems so promising, if only they could sell it internationally.
