Pantech has unveiled a new Android-powered smart phone in Korea called the Vega S5. The smartphone has a five-inch screen and will be released early this month. One of the key features of the smartphone is that it has a 13-megapixel camera on the rear. That five-inch screen is a IPS HD LCD with very slim bezels.
Pantech says the design of the phone is optimized for the average Korean hand measuring a width of 8 cm. The design phone allows the user to hold it with one hand and the thumb of the average hand can touch anywhere on the five-inch screen. The camera has a tracking focus feature enabling continuous shooting of moving targets and zero shutter lag. The phone has the world’s first WTR RF chip designed to reduce power consumption.
Internal battery is a 2100 mAh unit, and the chip uses a QUALCOMM LTE processor. Other features of the smartphone include support for sharing TV content on a larger screen, T-DMB tuner, and support for streaming audio. The phone also uses some sort of Smart Voice voice-recognition system and supports alarms, e-mail, Google Maps, and more. The phone runs Android 4.0 ICS and is available in white or black colors. Pricing is unknown at this time.
