LG Optimus Vu 2 announced for Korea

LG Optimus Vu 2 announced for Korea

Less than one year after introducing the Optimus Vu, LG has announced its successor, the Optimus Vu 2.  Featuring the same 5-inch display with a 4:3 aspect ratio, the handset runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and packs a dual-core 1.5GHz MSM8960 dual-core Snapdragon processor. Additional hardware details include 2GB RAM, a 2150mAh battery, an updated Rubberdium Pen 2.0, Wi-Fi, Blietooth 4.0, IR transmittor, and VoLTE (voice calls over 4G LTE) capability.

In terms of software, LG promises to update the handset to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, yet doesn’t seem ready to commit to a time frame.  LG has also included apps such as Q Translator and Q Memo for the Optimus Vu 2, both of which employ use of the stylus. Rounding things out, the smartphone comes with a feature called One Key (accessory purchase required), which helps you to locate the handset should it come up misplaced.

As of right now there’s no indication when Korea will see the Optimus Vu 2, nor what the price will be.  What’s more, we’re not sure how long until we get one in the United States; Verizon only recently started offering the initial model as the LG Intuition.
