Pantech Vega S5 Combines Big Screen, Tiny Bezel

Samsung’s success with the Galaxy note continues to reverberate throughout the smartphone ecosystem, and we’re seeing more and more phones with plus-sized displays that reach for the five-inch mark. The latest to come to our attention is Pantech’s Vega S5, which features what the manufacturer calls the thinnest bezel on any phone in its size class.

The Vega S5’s five-inch screen is an IPS LCD component, and features a respectable 720p resolution. The ICS handset runs a Snapdragon S4 chip and is powered by a 2100mAh battery. On the rear, we’ve got a thirteen-megapixel main camera with LED flash.

That all sounds like some pretty decent hardware, so we’re curious to see just what the Vega S5’s capable of, but as for now we’ve only heard about plans for the phone to see sales in South Korea, where it will support the nation’s LTE networks. Pantech’s no stranger to bringing Androids to US carriers, like the Burst on AT&T, but we haven’t been seeing the manufacturer’s more high-end handsets. If it ever plans on doing something about that, the Vega S5 sounds like a prime candidate for showing us all just what the company’s capable of.
