Pantech Vega Iron 2 officially announced as yet another flagship smartphone from Korea
Measuring 144.2 x 73.5 x 7.9mm and weighing 152 grams, the Pantech Vega Iron 2 sports a 5.3-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display, and runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat. Other features include LTE-Advanced, a 13MP rear camera with what Pantech is calling “Wide Optical Image Stabilization”, 2.1MP front-facing camera, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory, and a 3,220 mAh battery.
Pantech will start selling the Vega Iron 2 later this month in South Korea, offering white and black versions of it - both being manufactured using a metal frame. There’s no word on how much the smartphone will cost, and neither on an eventual international availability.
Interestingly, Pantech announced the new Vega Iron 2 the same day when LG (one of Pantech’s rivals) officially revealed its first Quad HD smartphone: the LG Isai FL. However, the Isai FL is exclusively made for Japan - although it looks like it can be seen as a precursor to the LG G3, which should be widely available around the world.

If 13MP is Sony IMX214, 5.3-inch 1080p Super AMOLED like S5 (better brightness, viewing angles, color reproduction in cinema mode (106% instead of 122%), anti-glare) and if it have sound at headphones, then yes, but these two parameters equal

(*two parameters is screen and camera)

I saw this website before, they sell a lot of Chinese phones. But Pantech is from South Korea, so it's not available on the website you mentioned. But thanks anyway.
