LG has taken the wraps off its latest oversized-smartphone — phablet — the VU 3: an Android-powered device boasting a 5.2-inch HD/IPS screen, as announced in a Korean announcement.
The company has dropped the Optimus branding — per its recent marketing move — but the Vu 3 retains the 4:3 aspect ratio of its predecessor, with a 1280 x 960 pixel screen resolution. There’s a 13-megapixel snapper — which records 1080p video recording at 30 fps — and LED flash on the back, while the front-facing camera comes in at 2.1 megapixels.
So. Much. Tech.
Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.
Like its predecessors, the Vu 3 is equipped with a stylus, and features a range of software that includes LG’s KnockOn ‘tap-to-turn-on’ feature and SmartLink cross-device sharing.
There are no details on price or international launch, but it will be available in Korea from September 27 — becoming another device that runs on the zippy LTE-A networks offered by local carriers.
We’ve contacted LG for further information and will let you know when there’s more to share.
