Pantech's beautiful new Pop Up Note phablet pictured, ready to cross stylus with the Note 4

Pantech might be in dire straits right now, but that hasn't stopped it from churning out innovative handsets. From the phone maker that first came out with a gesture-based touchless navigation, and a glass ceramic chassis for its phones, now arrives an eventual Note 4 competitor, at least for its home turf of South Korea. The so-called Pantech Vega Pop Up Note, codenamed A920S, is a 5.5" phablet with decent specs and fine looks...

Don't tell me you thought that stylus is an antenna?

Whoopsie daisy. Didn't see that one. Anyway if that's an antenna it has to be a part of the stylus because that's the stylus slot. Just look at any of the pictures with the stylus visible.

yep. but not only in korea, we have it also, but not on beautiful devices, usually cheap generic handsets.

15 and 24 is the Stylus pop out and not antenna.

stylus pop out? are you blind? take a look ay number 15 picture, is that a stylus to you?

24 looks weird, but probably a photoshop mess up...
19. ManusImperceptus (Posts: 611; Member since: 10 Jun 2014)
15: Stylus. 24: Bad photoshop? It's the stylus, as can be seen on one of the first pics...

Edit: TWO of the first pics, 5 & 6 to be precise...
23. marcski07 (Posts: 471; Member since: 25 Apr 2014)
lol. 24, 5 & 6, are the same, those pictures are much acceptable to be depicted as a stylus, unlike on number 15, on number 15 it is too thin to be stylus, it is more antenna than a stylus

There is only one thingy in that corner, and the pictures clearly show it to be a stylus. Unless you're arguing that it's a detachable antenna...?!?

Most korean market phones have antenna including the note3 and S5 since they have DMB service available. I'm actually jealous as hell that DMB isn't available here. Imagine all the sports events i won't miss

I doubt that note 4 could be more beautiful than this.
7. marcski07 (Posts: 471; Member since: 25 Apr 2014)
though i hate samsung designs, note series are exemption, and IMO, note 3 is still more beautiful than this. with the slim bezel of note 3 this will clearly be blown away.

The Alpha looks pretty good, except bezels are quite big and the back cover could be better (you can use a thirdparty back cover)

Actually they look the same to me :/ Only difference is the metal accents otherwise the Pantech is so fu*king hideous. Its just that I'm used to Samsung's design but still...

This a low cost and lower specs. Galaxy Note 4.

That camera cover is slick.. but wtf was that phone on top of the head all about?
31. mattkl (Posts: 176; Member since: 01 Feb 2010)
Camera cover? Do you mean the fingerprint reader?
21. ManusImperceptus (Posts: 611; Member since: 10 Jun 2014)
Better looking than an iPhone and most Androids...

Nothing can't neat the NOTR. Besides I used to own the a Pantech phone not really good though.

why did you erased the "Is Android really 64-bit ready?" article?

On a side "note", it's a Pantech...
So, basically, it will work great for three months then die....
