LG Optimus Vu Detailed Ahead of MWC

Posted by at 12:39 pm on February 21, 2012

LG has officially provided details surrounding the Optimus Vu, its own take on the same blurring of lines between the phone and tablet as Samsung’s Galaxy Note. True to leaks, the device has a five-inch display like its Samsung rival but uses a 4:3 aspect ratio like the Pantech Pocket. The 1024×768, color-rich IPS display is said to improve text reading, LG claimed, although the ratio could make it even wider than the Galaxy Note.

The design shares the Note’s concept of bundling a pen, although the phone body is much thinner at 8.5mm (0.33in) thick. Its screen makes it relatively readable outside at 650 nits of brightness, which isn’t as high as the 700 on a phone like the Optimus Black but is high in mobile. A dual-core 1.5GHz processor, an eight-megapixel rear camera, a 1.3-megapixel front camera, and a skinned Android 2.3 make it a close relative of the Optimus LTE.

Every version will have 32GB of built-in storage and a 2,080mAh battery are common to every country. They also get DLNA media sharing, HDMI video, and Wi-Fi Direct, although only South Korea will get T-DMB over-the-air TV tuning.

LG is planning a very quick release and will already have the Optimus Vu shipping to Korea by early March. It hasn’t said when the hybrid will ship to other countries.
