Have already seen our share of weird and unusual mobile devices, as did you probably too. Talking about unusual, LG’s Vu family fits perfectly into this category. Both, the Optimus Vu and Vu II come with a 4:3 aspect ratio, which is their most differentiating feature. This is also the reason why people take one look at the phone and quickly choose a different model with the standard 16:9 aspect ratio. According to some sources, the sales results are nonexistent. However, even though customers are apparently not interested in neither of the phones, LG is not going to give up on the Vu lineup just yet.
5.2-inch LG Vu III Phablet with LTE-Advanced
According to the latest rumors, third-generation Vu is in the works and it may see the light of day as soon as the end of September. As the news suggests, the LG Vu III will hit the stores in South Korea before heading to other markets. Official announcement is predicted for IFA next month. The phone, possibly without the Optimus brand, will introduce a few upgrades from previous models.
First, the screen will be larger. It will grow to 5.2 inches and will offer 1,280 x 960 resolution. The LG Vu III is believed to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and may be equipped with a 13-megapixel camera. The device will also support LTE-Advanced support. That last bit of information seems to indicate possible carrier.
As you may have heard, Verizon Wireless is working on its LTE-Advanced network, so the chances are that the handset is heading right there.
