In another post we already introduced the Vega LTE smartphone’s incredible internet speed, stunning design and top-of-the-top specs. But a new Vega is on the horizon.
For the Vega Racer 2, Pantech took a step forward and created an even better smartphone around Qualcomm’s 28nm Snapdragon S4 chipset. This not only makes the phone faster but also extends its battery life to nine hours and thirty minutes of talk time.
Most smartphones today have very similar features: touchscreens, high-megapixel cameras, the ability to run apps. Pantech decided that natural language voice commands were the best way to set its new phone apart. Basically, you tell the phone what you want it to do and it carries out your commands.
This goes way beyond calling numbers in the contact list and sending text messages. The TV commercial embedded below gives you a pretty good idea of how far the voice commands go. The actor activates the camera with one voice command, walks across the room and then tells the phone to take his pictures. Then he gives the phone another command to upload the photo to Facebook.
Basically Pantech determined the multi-step processes people do over and over again on their phones and automated them based on voice commands. Right now the voice commands only work in Korean, but we’ll keep you updated if we find out about other languages becoming available.

Born in Korea and raised on three different continents, I have always been enthusiastic to share the uniqueness of Korean culture and design. On top of that, the advanced level of Korean technology makes me proud to call myself Korean and motivates me to spread technology related news to more people around the world. The list of things I like (and like to do) is endless: Shopping, Gummy jellies, Lilies... and it goes on
