As expected, Pantech has announced the world's largest full HD smartphone: the 5.9-inch Vega No. 6.
The Vega's screen boasts a Natural IPS Pro LCD panel with a 1,920 x 1,080 resolution. At 5.9-inches, the device is the world's largest full HD smartphone. At 6.1-inches, Huawei's Ascend Mate holds the title of the device with the world's largest phone screen, but it's limited to 720p, as echoed in our hands-on CES impressions of the device.
As for the Vega No. 6, it's powered by a 1.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm APQ8064 Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU accompanied by an Adreno 320 GPU, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of on-board storage and MicroSDXC support for expanding the memory up to 2 TB. It'll run on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with Flux UX.
A 13-megapixel rear-facing camera is also on board, as is a front-facing 2-megapixel lens, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, GPS, T-DMB (a mobile television service for South Korean consumers), USB 2.0 and a 3,140 mAh battery. Elsewhere, the Vega No. 6 houses an accelerometer, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, gyroscope and electronic compass.
The Vega No. 6 will launch in Korea next month for 849,000 won, which is around $795. Expect a global variant unveiling during the Mobile World Congress in late February.
