Last year Qualcomm announced they were bringing a new Snapdragon processor, the 805, to market in 2014. A good bet for the first device to come with this new chipset powered by four Krait 450 cores would have been one of the flagship devices from a market-leading manufacturer. However, it appears Pantech has stolen the spotlight with the pending release of their new Pantech Vega Iron 2 smartphone.
The Vega Iron 2 appears to be intended for the Korean market only, although one of the four variants is carrier free and could be sold in other markets. In addition to the Snapdragon 805 processor, the Vega Iron 2 is supposed to come equpped with a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, a 13MP camera, 32GB and 64GB storage options, and LTE-A support.
