Pantech Announces their Vega LTE-A With Fingerprint Reader


A rendering of the Pantech VEGA LTE-A appears in the wild! The last we heard from Pantech the company was going official with Verizon and their Perception, a decent new smart phone with all the fixin’s. Previous to the Perception the company announced their Vega Iron which was boasted as having the smallest bezel on any phone to date. Before the Iron Pantech announced the Discover with At&t and the Vega R3 was set to add another oversized handset into the market place. Today a new Pantech Vega is being shown off in the spot light, the Pantech Vega LTE-A is set to take on the world or at least Korea.

LTE stands for long term evolution and is the latest standard in wireless connectivity. While the technology is fairly new it has been providing us with super fast 4G speeds for quite some time now. LTE-A however is that same evolution, but “Advanced”. Without getting too far into what makes the latest version of LTE so Advanced, just know it is better, faster and stronger! Recently Samsung has brought the technology to the Galaxy S4 being one of very few phones to sport the new feature. Pantech however is looking to get in on some of the LTE-A action with their latest Vega LTE-A device. Pantech announced the Vega LTE-A today and all is well! The device is built to impress with an extra thin build and a biometric fingerprint scanner built in on the rear under its 13 mega pixel camera and LED flash. Additionally the Vega LTE-A will also sport fast charging technologies that will allow its 3100 mAh batter to be charged in a mere 94 minutes. The Vega LTE-A starts with a 5.6 inch 1920×1080 full HD IPS LCD touch screen that will give its end users complete, touchy control over Android version 4.2.2. Internally the device runs with a Snapdragon 800 2.3 GHz quad core processor and 2 GB of RAM. Lastly, the Vega LTE-A of course comes with LTE Advanced that will support up to 150 Mbps. The Vega LTE-A will launch next week and will initially be an exclusive to SK Telecom. Unfortunately there is no word on its potential stateside.
