Biggest 'full HD' smartphone unveiled

The Vega No 6 has only been confirmed for sale in
South Korea at this point

A South Korean firm has unveiled the biggest smartphone to date with a screen capable of showing 1080p high-definition video at full resolution.

Pantech's Android-powered Vega No 6 features a 5.9in (15cm) display, which packs in 373 pixels per inch.

China's Huawei recently unveiled a 6.1in handset, but it was only a 720p display.

They add to the so-called "phablet" category, as manufacturers test how big customers are willing to go.

When Samsung helped pioneered the format with its 5.3in Galaxy Note in 2011, many analysts suggested its size was too large to find favour.
