Pantech to take on LG’s G2 with its latest Vega LTE-A smartphone
The upcoming LG G2 isn’t just another high-end Android handset, as LG has designed it to be a bit different – including volume buttons on its back, just below the rear camera.
Pantech, one of LG’s Korean rivals, seems to like this idea, too.
Meet the Pantech Vega LTE-A (model number IM-A880S). This seems to have the power button and a touchpad on the back. Pantech is getting ready to announce the handset on August 6 – just one day before LG officially reveals the G2.
The new Vega will run Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean at launch, featuring: a 5.7 inch Full HD display, LTE-Advanced connectivity (this was obvious from the name), 2GB of RAM, and a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.3GHz.
Apparently, the Vega LTE-A will be available only via SK Telecom for the beginning (in black and white). We don’t know if Pantech plans to sell the new handset outside South Korea.
