Pantech has unveiled a new 5.9-inch smartphone which features a screen capable of supporting 1080p high-definition (HD) display and video at full resolution.

The smartphone, known as Vega No 6, runs Android’s 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system and features a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad core processor.

Vega No 6 features 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, a microSD slot and a 3,150 mAh battery.

The company said the new handset goes on sale in February in South Korea through all three domestic mobile carriers.

Pantech vice president Lee Jun-woo said: "The term ‘Vega’ means the brightest star in the sky (SKY-model products)."

"In that sense, I am sure ‘VEGA NO6 Full HD’ will break new ground in the pleasure of viewing (images)," Jun-woo said.

Last year a report from Strategy Analytics found that global LTE smartphone shipments are expected to reach 275 million units this year, compared to 90.9 million units in 2012.
