When it comes to fanciful gadgets such as smartphones and tablets, it goes without saying that Singapore is always one of the last to get its share of the fun (if ever), and the latest announcement from Pantech only seems to confirm that fact. Apparently, the Vega N5 super-powered smartphone that was announced back in May has finally been released for sale in Korea, and it seems that it will only be available for purchase in that particular country.
Do you remember a certain story we published a long time ago about what was allegedly an Android-powered superphone from Pantech that was known as the Vega X and was touted to be the fastest smartphone to exist on the market? Well, scratch that; Pantech has just outdid itself with the introduction of an even more powerful smartphone that is seemingly capable of leaving the Vega X in the dust of its wake, and it is called the Vega N5.
According to various online reports, the Pantech Vega N5 is powered by Qualcomm's MSM8660 processor which is clocked at a whopping speed of 1.5GHz, while its memory is provided by 1GB of DDR2 RAM, in addition to its internal storage capacity of 16GB. And if that is not enough to satisfy those who simply have to be on the bleeding edge of smartphone technology, the reports also claim that the Pantech Vega N5 will come bundled with version 2.3.3 of the Android operating system and will feature a five-inch display which is capable of a native resolution of 800 x 480, similar to what Dell currently offers in its Dell Streak 5 tablet/smartphone hybrid device.
Unfortunately, this is where we have the classic "good news bad news" situation going, and the bad news is that most of the reports have indicated that there is virtually no chance of a global launch, for the Vega N5 is currently only targeted at its domestic Korean market. No information about pricing has been revealed yet, although some reports are claiming that the Vega N5 will be sold for the equivalent of 550 euros (approx US$767). And no, the lady is not included as part of the package.
