Pantech preparing a "bezel-less" 5" Snapdragon 600 flagship phone

Pantech might not be a household name in the States, but you’d be surprised to find out it is actually South Korea’s second most popular brand after Samsung. It is even more popular than LG.

And now Pantech is said to be preparing a new “bezel-less” 5-inch quad-core flagship device that will land on store shelves by the end of the month. Having a bezel-less screen is pretty much impossible so we are guessing this latest rumor means the bezel would be really, really thin.

The upcoming Pantech flagship comes under the Vega R Series and carrier the IM-A870 model name.

The device will run on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and features Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 600 quad-core chip, a powerful and energy frugal solution.

We are curious to see what the bezel-less display really is so we’ll keep an eye on this upcoming device. The official images should be out by the end of the month so stay tuned.

Interesting. I never really looked at pan tech. Atleast their bringing something done somewhat different to the market.

Half of Samsung's innovation are taken from Pantech's idea. They were the ones to introduce floating window apps, use sensor to answer call etc.

Am sure Samsung sheeps would give hoards of thumbs down :p

I had no idea Pantech was #2 in South Korea. Definitely thought it was LG. Can't say I'm surprised though.

Bezel less won't work very well, its been proven to be unproductive to use.
