Following the original unwieldy device’ debut barely 6 months after, the South Korean giant LG has made Optimus Vu2 official today. In addition to VoLTE, the new Vu2 hybrid Phablet boasts an upgraded chip along with more RAM-gigs and larger battery life.
Announced way back in February, the new LG Optimus Vu2 exclusively debuted recently in USA on Verizon as LG Intuition.
For those of you [would have been] impressed with its specs and have been waiting since then, your patience is always a virtue; as today we have treated with its official release.
Comes flaunting three colors versions — including white, black, and pink — the new Optimus Vu2 features 1.5GHz Qualcomm S4 MSM8960 processor, 2GB of RAM, and a slightly larger 2,150mAh battery, meanwhile a new home button dominates the front over 5-inch 4:3 aspect ratio display.
Other awkward but not least features include Ice Cream Sandwich OS (nevertheless, we’d hope for JB update pronto), 8MP rear snapper along with 1.3MP front-facing shooter.
Despite the NFC, the new Vu2 also comes supporting IR blaster (with matching QRemote app turning the device into a universal smart remote), and VoLTE capabilities – which lets you make voice calls over a 4G data connection.
Other usual notable specs include, DLNA, WiFi Direct, MHL, NFC, and Bluetooth 4.0, infrared.
Initially the Optimus Vu2 is on sale in its home turf (South Korea) for $864. Stay tuned with Techsnapr for a follow-up post on international availability.
