If you were a small South Korea-based smartphone maker who has to take on the likes of industry giants Samsung and LG, what do you think you should do in order to thrive? Some people might be inclined to say wage pointless patent wars, but we think a little bit of good old innovation would also work just fine. That’s exactly what Pantech has tirelessly been trying to do, and now the latest fruit of its efforts comes to us in the form of the VEGA LTE-A.
The Pantech VEGA LTE-A looks pretty much just like any other Android smartphone on the market right now: it has a 5.6-inch Full HD screen, runs on a quad-core Snapdragon 800 CPU, and it runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean right out of the box. But it also supports the newly-minted LTE-Advanced networks over in South Korea, so that’s a plus. It also has fingerprint recognition on its back.
We’re not quite sure how much a single Pantech VEGA LTE-A will set you back, but it will be made available for sale in mid-August through Korean carrier SK Telecom. We’ll have to leave you to your own devices now, as the lady in the photo has apparently been telling us to shup up this entire time.
