LG Optimus Vu is now officially U.S. bound, 5 inch screen and all; 500,000 units sold in South Korea
that sets the LG Optimus Vu apart from its fellow phablet, the Samsung GALAXY Note, is its 4:3 aspect ratio. Because of that, the LG Optimus Vu comes off looking more square and tablet like than the Samsung GALAXY Note which looks more like a giant phone. Not only does it affect the shape of the model, it also might affect video encoded in 16:9.
The specs for a Verizon branded version of the LG Optimus Vu include a 5 inch screen with resolution of 768 x 1024 and a pixel density of 256ppi. A dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 processor is under the hood and 1GB of RAM is aboard. There is also 32GB of internal storage that can be soubled with the 32GB capacity microSD slot. The rear and front-facing cameras come in at 8MP and 1.3MP respectively and there is a 2080mAh battery keeping the power going. Android 4.0.4 will be installed out of the box. While there is no word on pricing, there should be a wide contingent of Verizon fans who have been shut out from the Samsung GALAXY Note, interested in a little phablet action of their own.
