Pantech Vega outed as a 5" phone with 1.5GHz dual-core chipset and Android Gingerbread
Pantech is trying to prove that there is still room for 5-inchers out there, and its new Pantech Vega No5 creation comes hot on the heels of the Pantech Vega Racer handset, and its 4.3" display.

Specs on the Pantech Vega seem to be very similar to those of the Vega Racer - 1.5GHZ dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset, same 480x800 pixels of resolution, 8MP camera doing its 1080p thing, 16GB of internal memory, and 14.4Mbps HSPA+ connectivity.

The large difference is, of course, added screen real estate with the inclusion of the 5" LCD display. Call it a smartphone, a tablet, or a tabletphone, the Pantech Vega won't get mad at you, but we are sure it is now looking at its Dell Streak brother for hints where to go from here.

It's Korea-only for now, but you know how they say never say never. We are just curious about the Pantech Vega from a scientific standpoint, we wonder how long the battery is quoted for with dual-core 1.5GHz silicon inside, and a 5" LCD display on the outside. Despite its large screen, the Dell Streak had a pretty good battery life, so we'll be expecting at least that, though the two cores might get in the way.
