LG has surprised everyone with an early release of the Optimus Vu. This new 4G LTE smartphone was supposed to be introduced at the MWC next week.
The LG Optimus Vu seems to be a serious competitor for the Galaxy Note as it packs a large IPS screen, measuring 5-inches and features a 4:3 aspect ratio.
The specs of the Optimus Vu are pretty impressive, as this one is powered by a 1.5Ghz dual-core processor and packs 32GB of internal storage. LG has announced that this one will come with Android Gingerbread, however the Ice Cream Sandwich update is on its way.
LG’s Optimus Vu becomes one of the slimmest large screen smartphones on the market and will probably appear on Verizon’s 4G LTE network pretty soon.
Other specs include a 8-megapixel camera with LED flash as well as a 1.3-megapixel vor chatting. The Optimus Vu also comes with DLNA Media Sharing and a HDMI port in case you want to connect this one to your HDTV in order to playback your media.
LG plans to show off the LG Optimus Vu at the MWC and officialy launch it in Korea on SK Telecom. No pricing information has been revealed at this time.
