Korea's third mobile force Pantech has a tough gig getting noticed alongside electronics giants Samsung and LG, but judging by the new Pantech Vega Iron 2 it's not because its products aren't up to scratch.
Yes, as we heard last week the hoped-for Snapdragon 805 processor isn't on board but the Vega Iron 2 is still an impressive piece of kit.
Pantech's new flagship Android smartphone was announced in Korea yesterday, and comes with all the latest high-end mobile goodies you'd expect from a 2014 flagship device.
Well, aside from the Snapdragon 805 processor that is, meaning we're still waiting for the first S805 phone to break cover. But that aside, there's plenty to like.
It looks pretty good too – better looking than the Galaxy S5 in our opinion though not quite in HTC One territory – and at 7.9mm thick and weighing 152g it falls somewhere in the middle of the skinnyphone spectrum.
It's fronted by a 5.3in full HD Super AMOLED display, and on the inside you'll find a Snapdragon 801 processor running at 2.3GHz, supported by 3GB of RAM, and with 32GB of storage to play with.
The 13MP rear camera comes with what Pantech is calling Wide OIS – you're guess is as good as mine – and there's a 2.1MP front-facer too and a removable 3220mAh battery.
The Pantech Vega Iron 2 will launch with LTE-Advanced in its home market, but there's no word yet on price or – more importantly – whether it will be sold in the UK directly.
