LG Optimus Vu II official: faster, with VoLTE, IR blaster and One Key fob for your keychain
The LG Optimus Vu II just got official in Korea, and it covers the specs we already heard from rumors before - dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 2GB of RAM, and a slightly larger battery at 2150 mAh.

Of course, all eyes are on this unorthodox 5" 4:3 screen, which is still to carve a niche for itself on the market with that aspect ration. The bezel is much slimmer now, though, and the Rubberdium Pen 2.0 (yep, that's what it's called), has a thinner, more accurate nub.

And here come the extras - the LG Optimus Vu supports that sweet VoLTE, but also sports wireless charging with the pad sold separately. It has an IR blaster with the QRemote app to manage electronics around your house, and not only LG ones, plus it sports the so-called One Key fob, that you can dangle on your key chain, and press to make the phone emit a beep, so you can find it. The One Key accessory serves as a notification light for missed messages and such as well.

Yeah, But Vuu is not that cheap too... Spending few extra bucks for a great product like Note II is worth the money.

Didn't they just release the first vu sometime last february and now they're releasing the next version this fast? I think samsung might counter sue again this time around, the design(esp the home button)looks identical to the galaxy series and so does the colors(the color options on the s2 and note)

i think samsung wont even bother to sue the vu ii. coz it wont sell lol
