After its successful debut in Korea and Japan, the Optimus Vu by LG will make its global debut in select markets in Europe, Asia, Middle East/Africa and Latin America starting in September. With the world’s first 5″ inch 4:3 aspect ratio display, the Optimus Vu blurs the line between traditional tablets and smartphones for a truly unique smart device experience.
Since its March debut in Korea, the Optimus Vu has sold over 500,000 units, demonstrating public acceptance of its form-factor. The reception the device received in Korea prompted LG to launch the Optimus Vu in Japan this month, where it has also been received positively by Japanese consumers.
For the global roll-out, the Optimus Vu will be equipped with NVIDIA Tegra 3 mobile processor, the super 4+1 quad-core with 5th battery saver core, that offers a superb balance of performance and power requirements. 4 cores are used for high performance tasks such as games and multitasking. For voice call, email, music and video playback, only 5th battery saver core is enabled and it consumes very less power.
Witfh the world’s first high-resolution 5″ inch, 4:3 ratio IPS display, the Optimus Vu becomes something special, a device that’s both pocketable and spacious. The Optimus Vu will come with an upgraded version of QuickMemo and Notebook, two features which make great use of the large display real estate.
