Pantech to Unveil New Smartphone Next Week

Pantech plans to unveil its new flagship smartphone, the Vega Iron 2, at a press event next Thursday.

It is the follow-up to the Vega Iron, which drew attention when it was launched last year as its body was made entirely of metal -- a material that can also act as an antenna to boost reception.

The new model comes with a Qualcomm processor and boasts a 5.3-inch full HD display, 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a special feature to reduce camera shake.

The new model will hit stores here early next month.
