Optimus Vu | LG
LG's Optimus Vu will be available in select markets across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America from September, featuring a new Tegra 3 processor but no LTE connectivity.
LG is launching a virtual assistant service in Korea to compete with Apple’s Siri and Samsung’s S Voice. Named Quick Voice, the service will support 11 apps at launch, including the phone, email, address book, alarm clock, and calendar apps.
LG is working on a 5-inch 1080p smartphone display for the second half of 2012. The 1920 x 1080 touchscreen offers a pixel density of 440 ppi.
The LG Optimus Vu phone-tablet hybrid has been released in Korea for 999,900 won (around $900) without a contract. It will be available through SK Telecom and LG U+.
LG has formally announced the Optimus Vu, it's new LTE smartphone with a 5-inch, 1024 x 768 display, 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor, and 8-megapixel camera.
We're not sure what focus group studies are providing fuel for this race toward 5-inch smartphones, but at least now we can compare two of the most fashionable candidates side by side: LG's Optimus Vu and Samsung's Galaxy Note.
If the Galaxy Note wasn't pushing the big-phone trend far enough for you, LG has something in store: it just posted a teaser for the new Optimus Vu, a smartphone with a 5-inch, 4:3 aspect ratio display.
