Pantech Vega No. 6-4

The upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has been rumored to come with a 5.9-inch display, which will put it almost at tablet territory, but it won’t exactly be the biggest phone in the market – not when there’s the Huawei Ascend Mate and other upcoming genre-bending devices.

One device that shares the Note 3’s purported display size is the Pantech Vega No. 6, released in South Korea just last month. Will it be made available for those outside of the country? The answer is yes if you live in Hong Kong.

Granted, you can find all sorts of gadgets and gizmos in the streets of Hong Kong, but this is different, since the Vega No. 6 has actually been officially launched there. If you’re interested, you’ll have to plunk down 6,000 HKD ($774) to take the full HD smartphone home.

The 1080p screen isn’t the only feature that’ll attract your attention. Check out the full specs below:

  • 5.9-inch Natural IPS Pro Full HD display
  • Quad-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro processor
  • 2GB RAM
  • 32GB internal storage
  • microSDXC slot (up to 2TB)
  • 13MP rear camera
  • 2MP front cam
  • LTE
  • 3,140mAh battery
  • Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean

Do you find the almost 6-inch Vega No. 6 — or any other huge phones — appealing? It looks pretty awkward to hold, right?

    S4 Pro is outdated. Didn’t know that 1 Terabyte microsd cards were made. Not sure whats the point of putting (support up to 2 Terabyte) if the microsd card isn’t widely available. The biggest I have seen is 128.

    Looks awkward for the tiny hands of Asian models, but PERFECT for my basketball player digits. The bigger the better. If I could get the Nexus 7 I’m posting from to TRULY work like a phone, I’d say SCREW tiny little cell phones altogether! ☺

    ….seriously though…. I like my displays large and high rez. I’m interested, but at almost $800, I’m out.

  • Are we seeing the next Note 3 look alike?

    why still s4 pro devices? on with the 600s, the 400s and 200s, the 800s!

    Bigger is better! Nice phone but needs a bigger battery.
