The Samsung Galaxy Note 3, by many considered the most powerful smartphone on the market, just got itself a worthy competitor. The Pantech Vega Secret Note announced today in South Korea not only does packs top-notch hardware but also offers many innovative features found in the best devices released by leading smartphone makers. The phone will most likely be available on all three major Korean carriers and will be priced at 900,000 won, which is about $839 off contract.
Pantech Vega Secret Note 4G LTE-A
The Pantech Vega Secret Note features a 5.9-inch display with 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution and is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, just like the Galaxy Note 3. The phone offers massive 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of expandable storage.
The MicroSD slot supports up to 2 TB cards. No mistake here. This is how much external memory you can add, if you can find a 2 TB memory card. The device sports a 13-megapixel rear camera as well as a 2-megapixel user-facing shooter. The phablet runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and comes with 3,200 mAh battery.
True to its name, the Vega Secret Note highly focuses on security. The phone features a fingerprint sensor, which serves not only to unlock the device but also to provide access to confidential data such as phonebook entries, photos, videos, music, and more.
Finally, the handset comes with a stylus, called V Pen, that expands the phones functionality for example by allowing you to scribble notes on the screen. The Pantech Vega Secret Note supports LTE-A frequencies and thanks to Korea’s DMB technology it lets you view TV directly on the smartphone. The phone can be bundled with a windowed cover the same way as the Galaxy Note.
