Rumored specs for the LG Vu III include Snapdragon 800 chip, 5.2-inch display

According to reports published by Korean media, LG is working on a third-generation Vu handset. This upcoming device will succeed the LG Optimus Vu II, retaining its odd 4:3 display aspect ratio. Some things are bound to change, however. The screen, for example, will be slightly bigger on the LG Vu III, measuring 5.2-inches in diagonal, with an improved resolution of 1280 by 960 pixels. A Snapdragon 800 chip, a 13MP camera, and LTE-Advanced support are also said to be present on the device, according to the source. Out of the box, Android 4.3 will be pre-installed on the third-gen LG Vu.
one million Vu units were sold in Korea, Verizon's LG Intuition (which was basically a rebranded LG Optimus Vu), couldn't make much of a splash. Chances are the third LG Vu smartphone will follow suit and be targeted primarily at its home market, but then again, you never know what the company's plans might be. The LG Vu III is expected to be announced in September, presumably during the IFA electronics expo in Berlin. Its launch is said to be scheduled for later next month.

Should have been great if its a 1080p screen but a 1280x960 will deliver high performance on snapdragon 800 chip set and i think 4:3 display aspect ratio kind feel uncomfortable on hands but some may like it though...

As a user of Note1, i didnt like the 16:9 of NOTE2 so went back to NOTE1. If this VU had a pen support, believe me, it is much better to use "Spen" on this then on N2/3 aspect ratio. I dont like LG too much, but this device keeps "normal" buttons in front, if it had proper wacom technology build in, i might consider. I am on Note8 + S4 now.
