LG Optimus Vu -Officialy revealed | 5-inch Android phone

So finally the Samsung galaxy note is getting some competition in the world of rising market of mega-smartphones. After Samsung,  now LG has officially revealed their new smartphone ahead of the upcoming mobile world congress, namely LG OPTIMUS Vu. The world now has two 5-inch Android smartphones that are blurring the line between a  phone and tablet and are attempting to resurrect the stylus. Like the Galaxy Note, the Optimus Vu is designed with a pen-friendly interface in mind.

There will be some good competition to watch for between Note and LG Optimus Vu,however the optimus is much wider than even the galaxy note.The LG Optimus Vu is 8.55 mm thick and 90.4 mm wide while the note is 9.7 mm thick and 83 mm wide. So its pretty obvious that the Optimus Vu would be much harder to handle considering the fact that it is much wider than even the galaxy note.

Here is one more thing to be mentioned about Optimus Vu: LG also had claimed the 4:3 aspect ratio as  a central selling  point,that will surely make it ideal for reading  ebooks and other content. Official rumors say that it comes with a 1.5 GHz dual core snap dragon processor, placing  it somewhere ahead  of Galaxy Note which comes with 1.4 GHz Dual core Cortex A-9 processor. Apart from this, rest of the features are quite similar.

But unlike the Galaxy Note, this LTE enabled Optimus Vu wont be available immediately in US.It would be launched first in Korea in the beginning of next month,initially running  Android Gingerbread on a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor. LG says to expect an Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade within three months of the roll-out.That will be pretty interesting to see as Samsung is yet to announce  any upgrade for  galaxy series.

However, the prices are yet to be decided. Let’s see after this launch where will LG be able to place themselves in the market.

So here are the Specification for this mega-smart phone :

  • 5″ IPS Display with 1024×768 Pixels Resolution and 4:3 Aspect Ratio
  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread (Will Receive an Upgrade to 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich within 3 Months)
  • 1.5 GHz Dual Core Snapdragon Processor
  • 32GB Internal Memory
  • 8 MP camera with autofocus and LED flash,1.3 MP Front camera
  • 2080 mAH battery

I think this would give a tough time to Samsung’s Galaxy Tab and the most awaited iPad 3. Lets hope that this time there is some change in the trend with the LTE enabled Tab soon in the market.
