MWC 2012: LG Optimus Vu with 5-inch Screen unveiled
 
 

LG unveiled the LG Optimus Vu ahead of the MWC 2012. Equipped with LG’s LTE and IPS display technology, the Optimus Vu: offers a combination of tablet-like viewing with smartphone portability. Running on a powerful 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 32GB internal memory and a large 2,080 mAh battery, the Optimus Vu: is a multimedia lover’s dream device says LG. LG goes after the just launched Samsung Galaxy Note with the LG Optimus Vu. 

“The Optimus Vu: was designed to maximize what customers could do with a smart-phone,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Mobile Communications Company. “By offering an optimal 4:3 ratio viewing experience, 5-inch display combined with superfast LTE technology, Optimus Vu: is just one example of what we can achieve when we combine our best technology with customer needs.” 

The large 5-inch display with bright 4:3 aspect ratio makes viewing documents, books, internet and multimedia contents easier and more comfortable. The 4:3 aspect ratio is optimized for viewing to grasp more at a glance and note taking to increase productivity in everyday life. Moreover, IPS display realizes every color in its natural state for the best viewing experience even under bright sunlight. 

At only 8.5mm, the Optimus Vu: is the slimmest among all LTE phones currently on the market and is perfectly suited for a hand and fits comfortably in a jacket pocket. Despite the large 2,080mAh battery, the Optimus Vu: adopts LG’s exclusive floating mass technology to appear slimmer than its actual dimensions. 

In addition to HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) and DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance), Optimus Vu: comes with 32GB memory and an 8-megapixel camera. While it will initially launch running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, an update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is already in the works. 

Optimus Vu features: 

  • Chipset: 1.5GHz Dual-Core Processor 
  • Display: 5-inch (1024x768) IPS Display 
  • Memory: 32GB eMMC and 1GB DDR2 
  • Camera: 8MP with AF LED Flash (rear) and 1.3MP (front) 
  • OS: Android 2.3 Gingerbread 
  • Battery: 2,080mAh 
  • Dimension (L x W x D): 139.6 x 90.4 x 8.5mm 

The Optimus Vu: will be introduced in Korea in March.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
