LG India has today announced the launch of its 5-inch phablet called the LG Optimus Vu in the Indian subcontinent.
The Optimus Vu was announced back in February at the Mobile World Congress 2012 and it arrives with a 5-inch screen with 4:3 aspect ratio and display resolution of 1024 x 720 pixels.
LG has priced the Optimus Vu for Rs.34,500 on its official website and the phablet arrives with the following specifications:
- 5-inch IPS Display
- Screen resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels
- 1.5 GHz Quad-core Tegra 3 processor
- 1 GB RAM
- 32 GB of internal memory
- 8 MP rear facing camera
- 1.3 MP front camera
- Measures 139.6 x 90.4 x 8.5 mm
- Weighs 168 grams
- Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS
- 2080 mAh battery
The Optimus Vu is surely going to prove a competitor to Samsung’s Galaxy Note II which was launched in India last month and arrives with double the RAM, half the internal storage and a slightly larger 5.5-inch display.
Which one will you prefer? The LG Optimus Vu or the Samsung Galaxy Note II?
