LG recently took the wraps off its new combo smartphone-tablet LTE device - the Optimus Vu - which, according to the company's representatives, will be displayed next week at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, and will be released in Korea in March.
The Optimus Vu will feature a 5-inch, 1024 by 768 pixel, IPS LCD display - which, just about 08.5 mm in thickness, will apparently be the slimmest of all the currently-available LTE handsets - for supporting easier multimedia viewing and ebook reading. Moreover, the 4:3 aspect ratio of the new handset's screen will facilitate an easier viewing of documents, books, Internet sites as well as multimedia content.
Some of the other impressive features of the LG Optimus Vu include a 1.5-GHz dual-core Snapdragon CPU; 32GB of built-in storage; 1GB of DDR2 memory; 2,080mAh; an 8-megapixel rear camera; and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. The Optimus Vu will initially be launched with the Android version 2.3 `Gingerbread', but LG has reportedly promised that the handset will get an upgrade to the new Android 4.0 `Ice Cream Sandwich' version within a few months of the device's launch.
According to the information shared by LG, the Optimus Vu will also seemingly ship with a stylus - the "Rubberdium pen", as the company had dubbed it - which will enable the users to perform their usual multitude of tasks, such as writing notes or making little drawings, on the stylus-supporting applications of the forthcoming handset.
