A quick search through our rather extensive database of rumors shows that LG's Vu 3 has generated disproportionately less hype than a device of it's class and stature usually does. The internals, as rumored, turned out great for the most part. Those include the odd 5.2-inch 1280x960 (308 ppi) display which features a boxy aspect ratio of 4:3, Qualcomm's latest and greatest Snapdragon 800 clocked at 2.3GHz and an Adreno 330 GPU running at 450MHz. Along also comes 2GB of RAM, a 13MP rear shooter with an LED flash, and a 2.1MP camera at the front. Moreover, the LG Vu 3 will come running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean out of the box, and have access to the world's fastest mobile networks, courtesy of its LTE-Advanced capabilities.
LG didn't stop there, though – a dedicated rubber rhodium stylus pen has also been thrown into the mix. Sadly, apart from providing the usual slew of functions like note-taking, converting the phablet's screen into a notebook for writing and drawing, and the like, it doesn't appear as if LG's new phone will surprise in this particular department.
Proprietary gadgetry and general tech that we've come to recognize will also make an appearance in the Vu 3. These include LG's translucent QuickView case and software features like KnockOn (first seen on the LG G2) and the self-explanatory Guest Mode.
While pricing is currently unknown, LG Vu 3's release date has been set for September 27, for the South Korean market at least – worldwide availability appears unlikely. This is to be expected, considering the relatively miserable amounts of excitement the boxy Vu 3 has generated in the West.
