On November 15, a magnitude 5.4 quake struck the city of Pohang, a southeastern coastal region of South Korea.

The seismic intensity was the second biggest in the country's history after the biggest ever quake of 5.8-magnitude hit the Gyeongju city, just south of the Pohang city, in September a year ago.

South Korea's top steel maker POSCO, based in Pohang, said it experienced no damage from the quake so far.

Available in options of black or silver colours, they use aluminum rechargeable batteries and weigh just 260 grams, said the firm. The new handset supports both Google Assistant and Amazon's Alexa, though support for the latter is yet to be rolled out.

While the US Geological Survey says it was centered off the coast about 9.3 kilometers northwest of Pohang, state-run Korea Meteorological Administration said the epicenter was inside Pohang. No casualties have been reported yet. Six aftershocks followed for about 30 minutes ranging from magnitude 2.4 to 3.6.

Photos and video footage sent to local TV stations showed crumbled street walls and furniture violently shaking inside people's homes and people rushing out of buildings in panic.

The quake was sensed across the country, including the capital Seoul, some 270 km away from the Pohang city, as well as the southern resort island of Jeju, according to local media reports.
