Pantech Introduces Vega Iron 2 Flagship Smartphone, It’s a Beast




Pantech’s Vega Iron 2 smartphone is no news. Information about the South Korean company’s flagship handset surfaced many weeks ago, though looking back at the first details on its specs, they don’t seem that accurate.

For example, the initial rumor claimed that Pantech Vega Iron 2 could be equipped with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, which is not yet available on the market. Given today’s official unveil of the Vega Iron 2, we can now confirm that the smartphone does not come with a Snapdragon 805 chipset inside. However, as Phonearena points out, the device is equipped with a powerful quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.3GHz. This is the same CPU included in the Sony Xperia Z2 and HTC One M8, so when it comes to performance, Pantech’s Vega Iron 2 seems to be on par with some of the most powerful smartphones available on the market.

Aside from the powerful processor, Pantech has also confirmed that its flagship smartphone will be packed with no less than 3GB of RAM, which is the same amount as the Xperia Z2, but more than One M8’s 2GB. On the back, the Vega Iron 2 boasts an incredible 13-megapixel photo snapper, which features autofocus, LED flash and something called “Wide Optical Image Stabilization.” There’s also a secondary 2.1-megapixel camera in the front for video calls and selfies. Design-wise, Pantech Vega Iron 2 looks like a candy bar or a very slim brick (in a good way). It measures 144.2 x 73.5 x 7.9mm and weighs only 152 grams (battery included). The smartphone sports a stunning 5.3-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display that supports full HD (1080p) resolution. Furthermore, the Vega Iron 2 comes with support for LTE Cat.4 connectivity, also known as LTE Advanced, which offers download speeds of up to 150Mbps.

It is also worth mentioning that Pantech Iron Vega 2 has no less than 32GB of internal memory and drains energy from a huge 3220 mAh battery. When it comes to software, Pantech Vega Iron 2 runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat operating system, but also offers some unique customization features for widget, calendar and other apps included in the phone. Check out the video below for more details on how these work. According to Pantech, the Iron Vega 2 will be available for purchase sometime at the end of the month, but no details on the phone’s price tag have been shared. For the time being, it’s unclear whether or not it will go on sale internationally.

Motorola Moto X+1 for AT&T, Verizon and Sprint Briefly Appears on Official Site




We’re still in the dark regarding the so-called Motorola Moto X+1. There are many questions concerning this tagline, especially due to the fact that we’re not even sure if it’s a device or a promotional program that Motorola plans to introduce this month.

Either way, it seems that we’re close to an official reveal, as reports of the Moto X+1 sightings on Motorola’s official website have started to emerge recently. The folks over at Droid-Life have been tipped on the brief appearance of the Moto X+1 on Motorola’s official website. Along with the device/promo that’s been listed on the site, there are also mentions to some of the carriers that will have it in their offer. It appears that Moto X+1, whatever it may be, will be available from AT&T, Sprint and Verizon. These three major carriers will be selling the Moto X+1 more or less around the same timeframe.

Unfortunately, these are all the details uncovered from the references on Motorola’s official website, but we expect additional information will surface in the coming days. On a side note, Motorola prepares for a May 13 launch event, where the company is expected to introduce another budget-friendly Android smartphone, the Moto E.
