LG officially reveals Optimus Vu, gives competition to Galaxy Note

LG Optimus Vu

We had got the chance to see LG's Optimus Vu in a teaser video ahead of its official launch at the Mobile World Congress but the company has gone ahead and officially announced the device in Korea. 

Better late than never, the stylus-friendly Optimus Vu openly challenges the Samsung Galaxy Note with much better specs. To start off, the huge 5-inch IPS display has a 4:3 aspect ratio along with a resolution of 1024 x 768. This aspect ratio makes it wider than the Note and also slimmer at 8.5mm. To power this beast, lies a 1.5Ghz dual-core CPU under the hood and the 2080mAh battery will make sure your Optimus doesn't drain out quickly. The oh-so-common now 8-megapixel rear camera along with a front 1.3-megapixel camera are built-in. 

The down-side here is again no taste of Ice Cream Sandwich. The Optimus Vu will ship with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, although LG promises a future ICS upgrade in the next three months. 32GB internal memory along with LTE, HDMI, DLNA & Wi-Fi Direct are present in here. 

LG failed to give out any pricing details but the device will start selling from March on different carriers in South Korea.
