Two newly leaked images suggest the LG Vu 3 is in the works

All eyes might be on the LG G2, but that’s not the only new device in the works from LG. If two newly leaked images are to be believed, LG is also preparing to release the LG Vu 3.

The first of these images comes from Picasa. As you will see below, it is an image supposedly taken from the camera of the upcoming LG Vu 3. The photo details reveal the model number as LG-F300L, and the image itself is named as vu3-vr-panaroma. The photo also points to the Vu 3’s camera being at least 13MP.


What else can we learn from the image? Not a whole lot, but a screenshot from the LG-F300 appears to confirm that the Vu 3 will stick to the unique 4:3 ratio aspect found on older Vu devices, though this time the resolution will be bumped up to 1280 x 960.

Unfortunately we have no clue what else the Vu 3 will bring to the table in terms of hardware or even aesthetics. We can tell you that LG seems to be dropping the “Optimus” name from the Vu family, just like we are already seeing with the upcoming LG G2.


As for when we can expect the handset, we certainly wouldn’t be surprised if the handset arrives in Korea later this summer or even early in the fall. If it becomes a globally marketed handset, Europe and the rest of the world can probably expect the phone a few months or more after it hits LG’s home market. As always remember that there is also a chance that these ‘leaked’ images aren’t the real deal, so it’s best to take all of this with a grain of salt.

What do you think, would you be interested in a refreshed member of the LG Vu family?

      I do not think so

      i have played with the VU-2 and well it feels awkward, it still is an amazing device for reading and editing pictures

      this is a good decision by LG sticking to the original aspect ratio, being the one of a kind design form.
