Pantech isn’t surely a first brand name that pops into your mind when thinking about smartphone manufacturers. Even those familiar with the mobile industry might have problems with placing the company’s product. However, considered the South Korea’s third largest mobile manufacturer the company is back after 20 months of silence while releasing a new Android-based smartphone sporting mid-tier specs, dedicated Bluetooth speaker and a svelte body.
At the end of July we reported about Pantech working on a new phablet which is supposed to compete with the Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4. And just right now, thanks to the hand-on video that has surfaced today, we know some more details on the handset, including its name and specs. The Pantech Pop Up Note we see on the video, though really classy in terms of look, has nothing more but decent parameters.
Literally, there are dozens of smartphone brands and a multitude of models available on the market, so it would be safe to assume that in theory everyone should be able to find something they like and fit their needs. However, for some users smartphones are a tad too much for their daily tasks. With such users in mind Pantech launched a quick messaging phone called Pantech Vybe. The device is available on AT&T network for a very affordable price of just $29.99 with a new two-year contract agreement.
Well, it’s a busy week we must admit. Another day, another flagship smartphone goes official. Yesterday, two Chinese manufacturers, Huawei and Vivo launched their high-end smartphones. Today, exactly as planned, Korean smartphone maker Pantech announced the Vega Iron 2 – its latest model of its premium Vega lineup. The new Pantech Vega Iron 2 arrives in a royal form that gives a pleasure to look at it and with given high-end specs it should be a pleasure to use it. The phone is scheduled for launch later this month for South Korean market.
It has been a tough year for Pantech company. Despite the success of the Vega Secret lineup, the Korean manufacturer has been struggling to sell its products in its home market as well as globally. In result weak sales put the company in financial distress. However, it seems that rescue is on the way in form of successor to the last year’s Vega Iron. The Pantech Vega Iron 2 is expected to arrive some time in May loaded with the newest Snapdragon 805 processor and bigger phablet size screen.
It is not a secret that smartphone makers constantly are competing for new customers. In South Korea the competition is pretty tough because of two big world class players: Samsung and LG. Right behind them is placed Pantech, which although less known in the US, can be considered a serious rival to leading phone makers in its home market. The high-end Pantech Vega Iron released last year was a worthy competitor of the Samsung Galaxy S4. It looks like this year the company is going to repeat the same move.
