Optimus Vu coming to Verizon as the LG Intuition

Last week, Android Authority learned that Verizon Wireless was getting the LG Optimus Vu at the end of this month. Today we heard that the LG Optimus Vu is actually going to arrive under the name “LG Intuition” and will cost $549.99 for full-retail pricing or just $199.99 with a two-year contract.

The Intuition is LG’s phablet competitor, which will be pitted up against other big names in this niche, like the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 2. The device features a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4, 1GB of RAM, 8MP rear camera, 32MB of internal memory, a massive 5-inch display, and Android 4.0 ICS.

Probably the most exciting thing about the Optimus Vu, now the Intuition, is that it will be the first phablet to hit Verizon. What do you think of the Intuition, in comparison to the original Galaxy Note? I’m also curious how this thing will fare, considering the Galaxy Note 2 is on its way soon. Of course, if you are stuck with Verizon for whatever reason, it’s essentially the only choice you have in case you’re looking to buy a phablet.

  • That awkward aspect ratio just doesnt sit well with me. It just looks very unpleasant to me. Only time will tell though..

  • 1024×768 resolution? no thanks.

    1024x768and only 5″?

    I am not the least bit impressed or interested. I hope Verizon does not think their high-end customers are going to go for this half-baked phone. I want the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 on Verizon.

    It would be monumentally dumb of Verizon AND Samsung to not include Verizon when they launch the Galaxy Note 2.

    Very ugly phone… Just go for the Note 2 if you like the larger screens.
