LG Optimus Vu pictured with fellow phablet Samsung GALAXY Note

LG Optimus Vu pictured with fellow phablet Samsung GALAXY Note
The other day we told you about a phone that could be introduced by LG at MWC in Barcelona. A teaser page and animated video revealed the LG Optimus Vu, an Android powered phablet that offers a 5 inch screen with a 1024x768 resolution IPS-LCD display. That works out to a 4:3 aspect ratio. First, we should let you know that this smartphone has absolutely nothing to do with 2008's LG Vu, a featurephone known for its mobile television function.

A picture of the LG Optimus Vu standing next to the Samsung GALAXY Note has been making the rounds online. While the former device is slightly smaller than the GALAXY Note, the 4:3 aspect ratio on the Optimus Vu makes it wider than the Samsung device. Looking at the 5 inch and 5.3 inch screens on the LG Optimus Vu and Samsung GALAXY Note respectively, we have to ask what the heck is in the Korean water that makes smartphones grow so big there?

The LG Optimus Vu is certainly a model that any smartphone fanatic would love to see more of later this month in Barcelona. Hopefully we will learn about availability and pricing of the phablet at MWC. And who would have thought that the Samsung GALAXY Note would have what appears to be such a strong competitor so soon?
