And before we know it, there's already a whole bunch of 5-inch 1080p display smartphones to choose from, with the Pantech Vega Iron being the latest handset to make it on the list. It was just announced officially by the Korean manufacturer, bound to join the ranks of local carriers KT, SK Telecom, and LG U+.
Samsung Galaxy S4 or the LG Optimus G Pro a run for their money. In addition to the 1080p screen, the Pantech Vega Iron comes with a 1.7GHz quad-core chip, namely the Snapdragon 600, paired with 2GB of RAM. There's also a very capable 13MP camera on its back, and 32GB of storage are at the user's disposal. The Wi-Fi radio inside it provides connectivity at up to 1 gigabit, which is nothing short of impressive. What's far less worthy of bragging with is the rather smallish 2150mAh battery, but at least it supports rapid charging, so about 90 minutes are enough to top it fully. Android 4.1.2 comes out of the box.The device sure has the specs to give competitors like the
The Pantech Vega Iron, available in either white or black, stands out with its design as well. It comes with a metal frame that gives it not only a premium feel, but also makes it sturdier and more durable. Moreover, it boasts a bezel that is only 2.4-millimeters thick, which is a noteworthy achievement. In fact, Pantech claims that the bezel on the Vega Iron is the slimmest you'll see on any other phone.
So far there's no word as to whether the Pantech Vega Iron will ever go on sale outside of Korea. But it sounds like an impressive smartphone no matter how we look at it, so we'd be happy if we ever get our hands on a Vega Iron. How about you?

And the battery is such a waste. Look at the hardware (very impressive), at least give it a 3000mAh,, :)

I'm holding this phone on my hands right now and seriously it's so pretty. There is no curve whatsoever in design which makes it perfect for male users. The performance is great, 23.500 Antutu scores on stock rom and 25.000+ on cook roms. I bought it in Vietnam at the price of 6.5mil ~ 308USD. One more thing, I dropped it from the second floor ~ 12m to the ground and it still was in one piece, just a little scratch on the steal border but I can have it polished later.

Wow...its just awesome and I want that but I live in India, I think Pantech should sell this phone out of their country also so that it'll give other brands a run for their money especially to their South Korean brothers Samsung and LG. Yeah, the battery could be better atleast 2500. Hats Off Vega Iron, it's better than HTC One & Xperia Z.
