We have all heard about Qualcomm’s dual-core monster Snapdragon and a lot of smartphone enthusiasts are looking forward to what it can do.
Go racer go
Well, it looks like the wait has ended with Pantech announcing the Vega Racer. Apart from the cool name, it is also the world’s first dual core smartphone which runs at 1.5GHz. The Vega Racer has some proper firepower under the hood. Apart from Qualcomm’s MSM8660 Snapdragon processor, it also packs in 1GB RAM as well as Qualcomm’s very own Adreno 220 GPU.
The device has a 4.3-inch LCD screen which runs at a resolution of 800×480, it also has dual cameras which are 8 Mega Pixels and 1.3 Mega Pixels respectively. The battery on the Vega Racer is 1650mAh with the entire device weighing just 120 grams and is only 9mm thin.
Pantech is not a well know brand outside of Korea, but with this announcement, it is sure to get a whole lot of attention. We hope this makes it way to India as well, it will be good to see how well it stacks up against the competition.
