LG Officially Unveils Optimus Vu As Tablet/Phone


Possibly in hopes of stealing some of Samsung’s thunder with a Sunday release of the Galaxy Note, LG officially showed off the Optimus Vu. At 5 inches.

The Optimus Vu will have a more formal release next week in Barcelona, Spain at Mobile World Congress. It’s supposed to debut alongside a re-up of their Optimus brand of smartphones and LG’s new Optimus logo.

Spec wise, the Vu actually comes in very close to the Galaxy Note. First there’s the a 5″ display. The resolution is 1024x 768. It comes in at 8.5mm thick. The Galaxy Note comes in at 9.7mm thick. Both devices are 4G/LTE compatible.

The processor on the Vu is 1.5ghz dual core. We’re not sure but we’ve heard it’s a TI OMAP processor. It has 32gb internal memory and 1gb of RAM. There is an 8 mega pixel rear shooter and a 1.3 mega pixel front facing camera (the Galaxy Note’s front facing camera is 2 mega pixels).

Like the Galaxy Note, the LG Vu will come out with Android 2.3 Gingerbread and get upgraded to Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, later.
