vega iron 2

Pantech is the third largest mobile maker in South Korea and like last year, when the company introduced its flagship smartphone called Pantech Vega Iron on its local market, this year Pantech plans a sequel – ┬áVega Iron 2 – to take on Samsung’s Galaxy S5 and LG Electronics LG G3.

According to ZDNet Korea, Vega Iron 2 will launch around the same time as the prequel last year (April), with a fingerprint scanning technology and a metal chassis. Hardware information is pretty scarce at this time, however, we are expecting it to feature a 64-bit Snapdragon 805 processor that deliversve 4G LTE-Advanced support, something that is pretty evolved in Korea, all three major carriers: SK Telecom, KT Telecom and LG U+ offer LTE-A services.

Pantech is unlikely to ship Vega Iron 2 outside Korea, however if something changes within Pantech marketing strategy we will keep you updated.
