The Pantech Vega Iron sprung up on us out of nowhere earlier this month, and what we heard made it out to be a pretty solid high-end Android, with a “bezel-less” edge-to-edge screen. Rumors suggested that Pantech would announce the phone on April 18, and sure enough, today the Vega Iron goes official. Unfortunately, not all of its specs live up to what was rumored.

Take that no-bezel design, for instance. Now, we’re willing to give Pantech a pass here since no one really expected absolutely no bezel whatsoever, and instead we’ve just gotten a fantastically thin one: we’re talking 2.4 millimeters per side. All told, the Vega Iron’s screen takes up 75.5 percent of the phone’s face.

That screen, though, is the bigger disappointment. Everything we heard suggested a five-inch 1080p component, and while it will be a five-incher, the resolution only hits 720p. Don’t get us wrong – that’s totally acceptable – it’s just not what we were expecting.

Battery size is also a bit of a let down, though we already knew to expect a 2150mAh cell. At least the handset should be plenty spry, running a 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600.

The Vega Iron will first go up for sale in Asia, and we’re still waiting to learn if Pantech has plans for the phone elsewhere.
