LG Optimus Vu goes on sale in Korea for the astronomical price of $890
Now that LG’s 5-inch Android powered smartphone has finally landed in Korea, it begs the question when and if it’ll arrive elsewhere sometime in the very near future. There’s no kidding that this thing is a head turner, especially when it features a not so often seen 4:3 aspect ratio display. Nevertheless, it’s officially available for sale in Korea – though, pricing is undoubtedly up there compared to other things.
carrier-free version of the LG Optimus Vu carries a premium price of $890 (990,000 won), which is indeed a pocket buster for some people. Of course, the handset isn’t for everyone, but if you desperately want to be the first on your block to own it, then you might as well start saving some money now if you plan on importing it.
Well, you can either do that or merely wait to see if LG is willing to bring it stateside to a carrier. Perhaps, since there’s a lot of focus surrounding these behemoths sized smartphones, carriers might be more willing to pick it up much sooner than what most people expect.
