Pantech Vega LTE smartphone to bring hands free gestures
Don’t you hate it when your elbow deep in some cake mix, and then your phone rings? Well, need not worry. Pantech is coming out with a device that’ll separate itself from the Samsung’s, HTC’s and Motorola’s of the world. The South Korean-based company plans to release a LTE smartphone called the Vega.
The Vega will carry a cool feature that should allow users to scroll or touch their phone’s screen without actually touching it (yes, you heard right). The new technology added is a gesture recognition software that almost mimics how the Microsoft Kinect works. This innovative technology will be part of a new Vega LTE line of phones due to hit the market in November. Consumers get to enjoy standard functions like answering calls and playing music — all operated via gesture.
Most information about this phone is mum, but rumored specs include the following:
- 4.5-inch display with 1280 x 800 pixels
- 1.5GHz dual-core processor
- 1GB of RAM
- An abnormal 1,860 mAh battery
- 16GB of internal storage
- T-DMD mobile TV watching
It’s about time Pantech has decided to join the party of manufacturers offering Android power-phones. For so long the company has carried the cheap phone makers tag, and now it attempts to break loose from those shackles with the Vega LTE. I for one can’t wait to wave to answer a call or change a song all without bombarding my screen with annoying fingerprints. Checkout this YouTube video that shows the gesture technology in action. Enjoy!
