Pantech Vega Iron 2 pictured in the wild, it may not have a Snapdragon 805 CPU after all
We first saw the unannounced Pantech Vega Iron 2 in March, when a report form China had it that the handset could feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 SoC. Now the smartphone appeared again, this time in white, in a set of hands-on photos.

According to Korean website Ruliweb, the new Vega Iron will not have a Snapdragon 805 heart, instead coming with a Snapdragon 801 chipset (which is already used by companies like Samsung, HTC and Sony in their flagship smartphones). The website also notes that the upcoming Pantech handset is 7.9mm thin, while featuring a 5.3-inch 1080p AMOLED display, 3GB of RAM, and a 3,140 mAh battery. Android 4.4 KitKat will be on board. Like the Vega Iron from last year, the Iron 2 has a metal frame that should provide a solid build.

According to the official Pantech Vega Facebook page, the Vega Iron 2 will be announced “soon.” So it won’t be long until we get to know if the handset’s going to be available internationally, or only in South Korea (Pantech’s home country).

If the Vega Iron 2 isn’t using a Snapdragon 805 CPU, it looks like another Pantech handset will: the IM-A888S, which supposedly sports a Quad HD (1,440 x 2,560) display. More details as we get them.
