The Galaxy Note II is about to get two additional color version. Well, at least in Korean.
After the purported black version, now there’s others to come. According to a leaked image, the two new colors are Ruby Wine and Amber Brown.
The Galaxy S III is already available in a bunch of colors, so it make sense for its bigger brother to follow suit. The Galaxy S III already has an Amber Brown version, while its red variant is called Garnet Red, so there’s some difference.
There is no info on whether those colors will leave South Korea, but I guess it will happen soon or later, just like it happened with the Galaxy S III paint jobs.
A press image of a black N7100 (Galaxy Note II) has emerged. A black Samsung Galaxy Note II addition makes perfect sense – we reckon that plenty of people will opt for the stealthier color option of the Android powerhouse. A darker color scheme is sure to at least make the device appear smaller.
There is no word on when or where the new color scheme will become officially available. MWC 2013 seems like a fairly safe bet to us, But we could have some info within a few days during the CES in Las Vegas.
Tell us what you think about a black Not II ? in the comment section.
Pantech is making a 1080p mobile displays and quad-core S4 Pro processors like they’re going out of style, as Pantech is now rumored to be working on a FullHD smartphone of its own.
Everyone is keen to catch-up to HTC’s DNA smartphone, which was unveiled last month as the first in what will likely be a new wave of smartphones with 1080p screens. With the likes of Samsung, Sony, and LG undoubtedly cooking up a response, several smaller manufacturers have also jumped in with impressive offerings of their own, including the Oppo Find 5 and ZTE Nubia Z5.
Besides the 1080p display of unconfirmed diagonal (5 inch might be a good guess) and quad-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, the Pantech Vega IM-A860 is expected to feature an Adreno 320 GPU and run on Android 4.1.1. No word yet on how much storage or RAM will be included, as well as what type of battery will power it all.
The Vega IM-A860 is expected to hit retail in early 2013, likely as Pantech’s next flagship smartphone.

Pantech announced the Vega R3 is phablet to come join the Samsung Galaxy Note II and LG Optimus Vu market, a market that we see it grows a bit after bit.
The phoneblet features a 5.3-inch Natural IPS Pro LCD screen of 720p resolution and Qualcomm’s monster Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset.
Pantech is the latest company to develop a dislike for bezels and the Vega R3 features “Zero Bezel Tech”. It keeps the phone compact and “provides optimum grip for a typical Korean hand.” The phoneblet is 9.95mm thick and weighs 169g.
The Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset is one of the headline-grabbing features of the Pantech Vega R3. It packs four Krait CPU cores clocked at 1.5GHz, 2GB of RAM and Adreno 320 GPU. It should readily tackle Samsung Galaxy Note II and LG Optimus Vu.
There are only two other mobile devices that use the S4 Pro chipset – the LG Optimus G and the Xiaomi Mi-Two.
The camera on the back of the Vega R3 does 13MP stills and features “Best Face” functionality – the now familiar Scalado-like approach of taking multiple shots and combining the best facial expression for each person into a single photo.
The phoneblet also packs extensive connectivity features – LTE, NFC, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0. There’s a microSD card to expand the built-in memory.
The battery that powers the chipset and the big screen is a 2,600mAh “super battery pack”, which promises 14 hours and 30 minutes of talk time. Charging the battery back up will be pretty quick too, with the 2A charger – it takes about 100 minutes according to Pantech. It’s a 2 port charger too, so you can plug in the phone along with a spare battery.
The Pantech Vega R3 is available through the three South Korean carriers starting today. It’s launching with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich but a Jelly Bean update is in the cards too.
