It's barely been six months since LG announced the awkward Optimus Vu and the company has already come up with a successor.
The Optimus Vu II, as it is called, comes with same 5-inch, 1024 x 768 resolution 4:3 display and looks just as unwieldy as before. Now, however, there is a newer 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8960 from the Snapdragon S4 series ticking inside.
Other changes include 2GB of RAM, a slightly bigger 2,150mAh battery, IR blaster functionality to use the device as a wireless universal remote control, Miracast support, wireless charging and VoLTE capability. There seem to be some new software features as well but the poorly translated text from LG's Korean press release does a bad job of explaining them.
The LG Optimus Vu II will initially only be available in the company's home market, but should go global eventually.
We wonder why LG would release a successor to a product that they launched so recently and with so few changes. Also, if it has anything to do with the launch of the Galaxy Note II today in certain markets around the world.
u means 3.5 & 4.0" is the great n wonderful design..look at performance.smartphone is about inside the phone..this is the owner of ips lcd.
4:3 screen ratio is soooo ugly!! it could've been a great phone, but the screen ratio ruins it all.
I'm eyeing the launch of HTC 5 "
