MWC is rapidly closing in on us and, with Samsung and HTC nearly confirmed as taking the event quite lightly, we need another “hero” to step in and capture the Barcelona spotlight. Could that someone else be LG?
Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and LG Optimus Vu hit sales milestone in South Korea
The Galaxy Note 2 has done very well globally, but what about in their own home country? Both LG and Samsung have confirmed that their latest phablet efforts have managed to sell at least a million devices in South Korea.
LG’s first Jelly Bean-running Android device will be the upcoming Nexus 4 – which will run Android 4.2 out of the box, a software version that will still be part of Jelly Bean according to rumors – but what about other LG Android handsets, especially high-end ones?
LG officially announces the Optimus Vu II, and it’s just as confusing as the first one
When LG announced the Optimus Vu in February of this year, we were taken aback. The device was obviously intended to be a Samsung Galaxy Note clone, but LG's key differentiator with the Vu was the screen. Whereas practically every phone on the market makes use of a 16:9 display, LG opted to go 4:3 with the Vu, which made it impossible to hold, much less slide into your pocket. Today LG is announcing the Vu II, and it has that same display.
LG Optimus Vu 2 leaks, to come soon with 5-inch screen, S4 CPU and 2GB of RAM
The Optimus Vu 2 was first mentioned in August, but at the time LG was completely mum on the second gen phablet’s spec sheet and availability details. However, someone seems to have spilled the beans big-time, because Android Greed has a trio of very legit-looking images showing off the Optimus Vu 2’s new design and listing most of its features.
