Pantech Vega Note image leaks prior to unveiling, shows rear fingerprint scanner
The Pantech Vega Note is expected to be unveiled on October 10th and the phablet apparently has a fingerprint scanner on the back of the device. Recently we showed you the invitation being sent out for the unveiling that takes place on Thursday, and it clearly shows a fingerprint covering the bottom of the invitation. It also shows a "wax seal" covering the scanner. Leaked pictures of the phone that were published on Wednesday, show that underneath that wax seal is a lens for the scanner, similar to what we have seen on the back of the HTC One Max. The difference is that the scanner on the back of the latter device is square as opposed to the rounded sensor found on the Pantech phone.

Since this is still speculation at this point, you might want to remain a little skeptical here, especially since we will all find out on Thursday when the device is launched for real. The 5.9 inch phablet is expected to offer a stylus for use on the device's 1080 x 1920 FHD screen. A quad-core 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor is under the hood while 2GB of RAM is on board. Android 4.2.2 is pre-installed and the phone has support for the zippy LTE-A pipeline.

5.7 or 5.9" is perfect size for phablet

Look's like the Galaxy Note had sex with an ugly Pantech phone, and this came out.

I wish fingerprint technology would just go away. \(..)/ It's a thing that just should not be on consumer mobile devices. Why not develop NFC technology further. Two that I can think of is Moto Skip and the NFC ring. At least that way, you can disable the NFC tag or ring from your device should they become compromised or if you lose them.
