Pantech Vega is shaping out to be a high-end Android offering with LTE and a 4.5
Here in the US, we haven’t been captivated tremendously by any of Pantech’s devices, especially when they’re mostly basic to mid-range offerings. Well, the perception has changed a little bit after they introduced the LTE enable Pantech Breakout for Verizon, but it’s still categorized as being nothing more than an affordable mid-range Android smartphone.

Thankfully, it looks like the company is seriously beginning to ramp things up a notch, as the Pantech Vega just might be that high-end Android smartphone that we’ve been waiting for them to concoct. For starters, it’s going to be flaunting a sizable 4.5” display with a mind-bending resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels! If that’s not enough to get you salivating, it’s also packing a 1.5GHz dual-core processor of some sort, 1GB of RAM, monstrous sized 1,860 mAh battery, 16GB of internal storage, NFC, T-DMD mobile TV watching, and LTE connectivity.

Even though it’s slated to be released in South Korea for right now, there is still some possibility that it will land stateside. We’ve been hearing and seeing a lot about the phone, even as early as last spring, but now that it’s seemingly official, we’re crossing our fingers that this will launch in other markets in the near future.

Looks to much like the IPhone. Please be innovative and make something that doesn't look like an IPhone.

Most likely Snapdragon since I believe they used that on the Breakout. But I gotta admit, I am pretty damn impressed with the specs of this phone. I mean Pantech has always been known to release kiddy budget low end phones and this just came out of nowhere.
