Pantech reveals world’s largest smartphone

South Korean phone manufacturer Pantech has revealed the world’s largest smartphone, boasting a full high-definition (HD) screen with the capacity to play 1080p video files at full-resolution.

Known as the Vega No.6, the sizeable screen measures 5.9 inches, making the device the largest phone to date with a full-HD display.

The smartphone is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, has 2GB memory and is supported by a massive 3140mAh battery, which allegedly charges fully in the space of two hours.

The Vega No.6 runs on Android Jelly Bean and is fully LTE enabled. Pantech has also added a 13 megapixel rear camera.

For the time being, the smartphone, which is billed to cost US$780 per unit, will only be available on the Korean market, the manufacturer not having confirmed an international launch as of yet.

The launch sees Pantech join the ranks of manufacturers tapping into the so named “phablet” fashion, although speculation is rife as to whether the model is a viable option which consumers will stick to in the long-term.

Of note, Huawei released a smartphone with a larger screen – 6.1 inches – at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this month. However, the device, known as the Ascend Mate, only features a 720p display; thus the Vega No.6 is the largest full-HD smartphone.
