The still unannounced Pantech smartphone marked as IM-A888S has been caught at AnTuTu benchmarks. While we’re not sure how this phone will be called once it’s officially released, there’s a strong chance it will be the successor to the Pantech Vega LTE-A, which had the model number of IM-A880S. And from what the results are suggesting, this will be a phone worth waiting for.
The Vega LTE-A 2, if that’s how the company decides to call it, will come with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 805 chip clocked at 2.5GHz, 3GB of RAM, 2K screen (2560 x 1440 pixels) and 32GB of internal storage, while Android 4.4.2 KitKat will run the show right from the get-go.
Now we must add that the phone’s AnTuTu score is rather unimpressive. This could be because the hardware-software optimization is still not there, and we’re certain that will be changed in due course. Or it could be that a 2K screen slows things down, adding much more pixels to the mix.
If we can take Pantech’s track-record for anything, chances are the Vega LTE-A 2 won’t be released in the West. We are hoping they’ll prove us wrong, though…
