LG Optimus Vu is considered as the main competitor for Samsung Galaxy Note since it has huge 5.0 screen size. Officially announced few weeks ago, the Optimus Vu is now available for purchase in it’s country of origin. Starts from March 5, both SK Telecom and LG U+ will sell the LG Optimus Vu in South Korea.
As we mentioned earlier, LG Optimus Vu sports a massive 5.0 inch screen. It is able to provide you with 1024 x 768 pixels resolution and 4:3 aspect ratio. Just like Samsung Galaxy Note, this handset also comes out with it’s own Stylus pen. Deep under it’s solid hood, lies a 1.5GHz dual-core processors, a full gigabyte of ram, and 32GB internal data storage, which is expandable via microSD card slot. 4G LTE, WiFi, and GPS connectivity are all supported. LG Optimus Vu also posses 8.0 MP rear shutter and 1.3 MP web camera.
LG Optimus Vu will be shipped with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but it will be upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich at some point this year. LG is currently priced this handset at 999,990 won, or equal to $895. Please note that pricing scheme will be totally different when LG Optimus Vu landed in US or Europe since there’s a possibility for a carrier-subsidised variant.
