LG announces today the Optimus Vu successor, the Optimus Vu II. It’s barely been six months since LG announced the square phablet design the Optimus Vu and the Korean company has now already to come up with a successor.
The Optimus Vu II, features the same 5-inch, (1024 x 768) resolution 4:3 display and looks just as unwieldy as before. Now, however, there is a newer 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8960 from the Snapdragon S4 series ticking inside.
Other changes include a 2GB of built-in RAM, a slightly bigger 2,150mAh battery, IR blaster functionality to use the device as a wireless universal remote control, Miracast support, wireless charging and VoLTE capability listed in the leak is here and accounted for, as well as a Rubberdium Pen 2.0 stylus with a thinner, more precise nub. One thing we hadn’t heard about is its optional “One Key” accessory, a waterproof fob intended for your key ring that can be pressed to make your phone beep loudly if you need to find it, and light up blue or red to alert you when there are messages or if it has finished charging.
Finally,The Optimus Vu II will pack Android 4.0 out of the box plus that integrated IR blaster and QRemote software to control your home theater.
The Optimus Vu II is priced at 966,900 won (About 864 US $) in Korea, though we’ll have to wait for a global announcement to have any idea how much it will cost when it be released.
