Pantech Vega Racer 2 now shipping in South Korea


Pantech unveiled the Vega Racer 2 last month and now South Koreans will actually be able to see it in flesh. Pantech just announced the device has started making its way from the factories to retailers around the country. The Vega Racer 2 is based on the Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon SoC with a 1.5GHz dual-core Krait processor and Adreno 225 GPU. It has a 4.8-inch 720p display, a 2020mAh battery, LTE connectivity and runs on Android ICS.

The Vega Racer 2 supports voice commands (which are supposedly further reaching than the standard Android ones). For example you may take pictures with your voice, explore the gallery, etc.

Pantech is shipping the Vega Racer 2 to all three major carriers in South Korea, but we are still to learn if it will ever hit markets outside its homeland.
