Just this fall the third-biggest OEM in Korea — Pantech launched 5.3 inch (IPS Pro HD display) Vega Racer 3 LTE (model number A850S) sporting quad-core S4 APQ8064 SoC clocked at 1.5GHz, 2GB of RAM, 13MP camera and a 2600 mAh battery. Since then we havent heard much about this device, however a new Full HD 5.9 inch device equipped with stylus made its way to the front pages late last week.
Pantech A860S is the model number of another Pantech device which popped up this morning in Asia and on GLBenchmark website. It looks like it has similar specs as Vega Racer 3 except the screen resolution is 1920x1080p, so I am wondering if this isn’t the Vega Racer 3 that beat the GALAXY Note II, GALAXY S3 and HTC One X in AnTuTu and Vellamo benchmark tests back in November.
I guess we will have to wait and see how this mysterious devices comes out as, it might now be an enhanced version of Vega Racer 3 but something else. However this will rise other questions why would Pantech need 3 devices with a screen-size over 5 inch? What do you think this is?
