LG Optimus Vu to rival Samsung Galaxy Note

To rival Samsung’s “Its a phone? It’s a tablet? It’s Galaxy Note” – a cross device between phone and tablet that also proved to be a runaway success, LG has announced LG Optimus Vu.

Last week LG Mobile CEO Jong-seok Park  stated

“With smartphones, we sometimes took a more functional approach to design… but we’re going back to our roots as a company focused on how our products fit into the lifestyle of our customers”

The new addition to LG mobile portfolio, Optimus Vu might be an outcome of the company’s new vision.

Unlike the Galaxy note, the Optimus Vu differs in the structural design ratio, its more like a mini ipad with a screen ratio of 4:3 rather than the 16:9 ratio the smartphone’s usually adhere to.

If you thought Galaxy Note is difficult to type with thumps, the 4:3 screen ratio of Optimus Vu would be practically impossible to be used single hand. Though LG says Optimus Vu would be a delight to use even without a stylus, it does come bundled with a stylus and also the needed note-taking and annotating apps that you would expect from this Note-like in-between device.

LG’s dual core processor clocks 1.5 GHz where as Note’s dual-core processor clocks 1.4 GHz.

With 4G LTE in place LG scores brownie over Samsung’s Galaxy Note at markets that already have 4G in place.
