LG Optimus Vu Officially Announced and I can say that, Galaxy note now has a rival: the LG Optimus VuIt will be available in early March in South Korea.

Dell was visionary with his streak of five inches, but the U.S. has probably gone out too early and  Samsung, in its aim to cover the entire market, has tried the experiment of Galaxy note, remarkable for its 5.3-inch HD screen. Some time ago, Korean had indicated that a million copies had passed: a commercial success for Galaxy Note.

We knew that his rival, LG, was about to enter into the dance with leaked photos of a terminal of the same type. It’s now official, as the LG Optimus Vu will come into the market as early as March in South Korea among operators SK Telecom and LG+.

Although open to the same type of market, smartphone / tablet is distinguished by its slightly smaller screen 5 inch IPS type. Displaying a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels, the 4:3 ratio is quite unconventional. The side of the pixel density, there are 256 ppi, 285 ppi against the Galaxy Rating.

LG Optimus Vu Technical Specifications :

Gingerbread is running on a dual-core processor Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8660 clocked at 1.5 GHz and an Adreno 220 graphics chip. For the cameras: 8 megapixel back with LED flash and autofocus and 1.3 megapixels on the front. 32 GB of internal memory are part of, like LTE connectivity, HDMI, DLNA, Wi-Fi Direct and T-DMB ( digital broadcasting system ). A stylus is also proposed. 

Big Negative:

LG Optimus Vu released on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), with a promise to update fast to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). We remind you that just the same statement was made ​​for the Optimus 2X which received six months later.

The ratio 4:3 gives wider dimensions: 90.4 mm against 83 mm for the Galaxy Rating, but it will be thinner: 8.5 mm against 9.7 mm. Would it be possible to use one-handed? Difficult … a priori. What makes the charm of the Galaxy is also excellent rating autonomy through a battery of 2500 mAh.Unfortunately, LG does less well: 2050 mAh, which should reduce significantly.

Regarding the LG Optimus Vu price, no information at this time. For availability outside Korea, we should get more information at the MWC in a week.
