LG has finally revealed the Optimus Vu successor with voLTE (4G LTE support) in a move to compete with the slowly-growing phablet market following the path of Samsung with their Galaxy Note II. The fight continues between phablets with Samsung and LG which are both offering super-phones for the likes of fans.
The Optimus Vu II features a gigantic 5-inch display with an aspect ratio of 4:3 and has a native resolution of 1024×768 pixels. The handset isn’t one of the thinnest in the industry but is 132.2 x 85.6 x 9.4mm in size (slightly thicker than the original Optimus VU) and weights 159g which is even less than the Galaxy Note II.
The phablet packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 1.5Ghz dual-core processor under the hood and 2GB of Ram while having a a beastly 2150mAh battery and a microSD slot without forgetting LTE capabilities and high-definition phone calls with VoLTE support. It also comes with a standard 8MP rear camera with a 1.3MP front-facing camera, NFC capabilities, an IR blaster with a QRemote app for use as universal remote control, and a “One Key” feature that helps the user locate the device. The device also comes with LG’s proprietary stylus called the ‘Rubberdium Pen 2.0’.
LG Optimus Vu II is available only in Korea at present for a price of roughly 865 US Dollars.
