LG just has revealed, the Optimus Vu, a new 5-inch LTE device touted to be an interesting hybrid between a smartphone and a tablet. The stylus-toting Optimus Vu will have a 5-inch IPS LCD display and an unusual 4:3 aspect ratio screen filled out by a lavish 1024×768 resolution.
Along with the Stylus-input capable with stylus-friendly applications built in, the Optimus Vu offers a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM, 8MP rear-facing (with capability of 1080p HD video capture) and 1.3MP front-facing cameras, 32GB of internal storage, and an HDMI port. The smartphone will ship with Android 2.3 Gingerbread (an update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is expected in near future).
Other features include Wi-Fi Direct, DLNA, a QuickClip hotkey for instantly capturing screenshots, a “Rubberdium” pen for taking notes with ease, Polaris Office (which apparently lets you open “any document, presentation or spreadsheet”).
The LG Optimus Vu is expected to be launched first in South Korea starting March, via LG U+ and SK Telecom, for an unknown price yet. LG also did not provide any indication of an international launch. But after making its debut at MWC in Barcelona, we’ll get to know more about it. Stay tuned.
