Pantech is not the leading mobile phone brand in the world, but there’s no doubt in it that they are working really hard to attain a proper place in the smartphone market. First they were known as a maker of low-end or mid-end Android phones, but then we recently saw the Pantech Magnus, and it told us that Pantech is entering the real smartphone market. Now, Pantech officially revealed the Pantech Vega R2 in South Korea, a smartphone with a 5.3 Inch display, and a threat to the famous Samsung Galaxy Note II.

We know that South Korea is the home of Samsung, one of the leading brands in the world, so it’s not going to be easy for the Vega R3 to take on the Note II. However, it comes with a 5.3 inch HD display, Android 4.0.4, a Quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 processor, 13MP rear camera and 2MP front-facing camera for video chatting, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, and a 2,600 mAh battery. Though it’s running on Ice Cream Sandwich, but we can expect a Jelly Bean update anytime soon.

It will be released in South Korea by all the major carriers, but the sad thing is we don’t know when it will hit other markets, especially US. So let’s hope Pantech will also launch this masterpiece in US and UK markets as well.

If Pantech launch it in USA, would you prefer buying it or the Galaxy Note II? Tell us about it in the comment box below.

  1. Without a stylus? Not a threat to GNote2, for certain. Perhaps a blip for the GNote 1, if it had come out a year earlier.

  2. 13mp cam, will look it over very close when it hits market, what other phones have 2g ram, snap drag processor and 13mp cam

    13mp cam makes it worth a very close look!
