Pantech Introduces 1080p 5.9-inch Vega No. 6

Last month, we saw some evidence that Android underdog Pantech was looking to jump on the 1080p bandwagon with everyone else, and that its model IM-A860 could be the phone it used to do so. Today, the company comes through with confirmation of that model, but unlike the five-inch full HD handsets that other manufacturers are releasing, Pantech seems to be going for something a little more like Huawei’s Ascend Mate, announcing the 5.9-inch Vega No. 6.

As has become the gold standard for full HD phones, the Vega No. 6 runs a quad-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU and has 2GB of RAM. There’s 32GB of internal storage along with the option for expansion via microSD. Pantech has given the handset a 13-megapixel main camera, and while its claim that the sensor’s quality is comparable to a DSLR may be just a bit over-the-top, it still sounds like it could have some decent imaging performance. The phone measures just under 10 millimeters thick, and packs a 3140mAh battery.

With a phone this size, there are understandably going to be concerns about usability, and to that end Pantech’s equipped the Vega No. 6 with its FLUX 1.1 UI, designed to promote one-handed use.

For now, there’s no word on the Vega No. 6’s availability outside of Asia.
