Pantech’s Vega Racer Shows Up in Google Phone Gallery


Google has just added 2 new phones to their Phone Gallery in which they showcase some of the best (and worst) Android has to offer. Normally, I try to avoid posts on Android powered phones from non-English speaking countries like Korea but these 2 Pantech devices look so nice, I had to think twice. The Pantech Sky Vega Racer IM-A770K (KT) and IM-A760S (SK Telecom) are two Android powered superphones we talked about back in May, but never followed up on.

As far as I can tell (my Korean isn’t the best) both devices feature the same internals but with a slightly different body styles. The thing that really gets me is how nice both models look (particularly the A770K) and the custom UI they’re using on top of Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Both phones feature Qualcomm 1.5GHz dual-core processors and 1GB of RAM for running plenty of apps in your background. They have front facing cameras and an 8MP camera capable of shooting up to 1080p full HD. Also, interesting is the fact that they feature stereo speakers (something I would like to see becoming a trend in more devices) and some kind of “Dual Mode Smart LCD” on their 4.3-inch screen for privacy in crowded situations. Wow.

Well, I’m done drooling over here. Both of these devices should already be available in Korea and with Pantech jumping in the Android scene here in the states, I’m crossing my fingers they can bring these dual-core devices with them and not just that budget qwerty slider.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. Looks similar to the samsung galaxy s2 (come to the US already!!). Because of it’s similarity to the s2 i wonder how long till apple goes sue happy on them. “Lulz”

  2. good thing these guys are korean phones because apple would have sued them….or not

    1. LOL – Who hasn’t Apple sued yet? Come to think of it my Sony TV remote looks kind of like an iPhone…better watch out Sony.

  3. I hate Pantech phones. Used to have the Matrix Duo. And this one here looks like the Iphone which is worse

  4. This phone looks like a serious competition for the others because it has a 1.5 Gz dual core processor especially coming from a crappy company it’s even more impressive. It will be a ATT phone since no one else carries that brand in the US

    1. Actually, nearly all Verizon-branded phones (generally their lower-end and pre-paid models) are made by Pantech.
