Pantech’s second generation Vega Note may be first to use Qualcomm’s 64-bit Snapdragon 810
Media in Korea is reporting that Pantech is working on a successor to the Vega Note phablet, and that it will be among the first devices to pack Qualcomm’s recently announced 64-bit CPU, the Snapdragon 810.

As we reported last month, the Snapdragon 810 is a beast, utilizing the big.LITTLE design and incorporating an Adreno 430 GPU. This chipset will handle 4K video at 30 frame-per-second, and LTE-Advanced up to 300Mbps.

Qualcomm announced that this silicon will be available to manufacturers later this year, with the expectation that we will see devices equipped with the new processors sometime in the first half of 2015. What is notable about the reports coming out of Asia is that this new Pantech will be released in the second half of this year.

The new Vega Note is said to have a 6-inch 1440x2560 display to show off all the graphic prowess of the new chipset. There may also be some features to help keep the motor cool while being put to work. Pantech’s flagships typically do not see wide distribution outside of Asia, so while it may make headlines if it is the first to debut a new Vega Note with a new Snapdragon 810, we are not holding our breath that it will make its way stateside.
