Pantech Vega Racer 2 may be coming to AT&T as the Magnus, HD screen and all
The Pantech Vega Racer 2 was unveiled in the company’s native South Korea in April. It’s Pantech’s latest flagship smartphone, and the third Korean phone maker wasn’t shy about it, saying it’s “the best” there is.
If you were hoping for Pantech to bring the Vega Racer 2 to the US, your wishes may have been granted. It looks like a Pantech Magnus (model number P9090) is headed to AT&T, according to a benchmark leak spotted by Android Police.
This device will have 1280×720 resolution and will run at least Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. That’s because it will come with on-screen Android buttons, the kind that were only introduced in that version of Google’s mobile OS. The processor powering the handset is a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core clocked at 1.5 GHz. So why do we think this is a Racer 2 for AT&T? The specs, naturally. So far they’re identical. So it certainly seems plausible that Pantech would want its brand to be associated with something other than run of the mill midrange devices in the US. We’ll keep you posted.
