LG’s answer to the Samsung Galaxy Note, the Optimus Vu is all set to make its way to the US. If the images posted by Android Police are real, Verizon will launch this device on their network soon. The 5-inch phablet will run Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box.
The Optimus Vu was announced six months ago at MWC earlier running Gingerbread. But now the device is ready to compete with the US version of the Samsung Galaxy Note with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system out of the box.
If the specs of the Optimus Vu remain unchanged, we can expect to see a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S3 with Adreno 220 GPU processor, 1GB of RAM, stylus, 32GB space, 4:3 aspect ratio and 8MP camera in the device. LG didn’t update any of its devices outside of Korea to Ice Cream Sandwich so it’s surprising to see the Optimus Vu coming with ICS.
Launch date of the Verizon Wireless packed LG Optimus Vu is not announced yet. But the images posted in Android Police confirm that the Samsung Galaxy Note’s competitor will be compatible with Verizon’s 4G-LTE network and will be running Ice Cream Sandwich.
