South Korean company LG is readying its next major smartphone for this year’s IFA trade fair, which is set to start on August 31.
The LG Optimus G will be the first to be equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 processor and the Adreno 320 graphics processing unit.
In addition, the smartphone will boast a stunning 4.7-inch True HD IPS+ capacitive touchscreen display capable of emitting 470 nits of brightness.
However, this won’t be the only high-end smartphone LG plans to announce these days. The LG Optimus Vu
is about to make its European debut, but the handset maker is rumored to launch the handset in the United States as well.
Obviously, it will be released through a major carrier and under a different name, but it will come with a dual-core processor and LTE support, unlike the European model which packs an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core CPU.
The North American version of LG Optimus Vu leaked a few days ago as LG Intuition and will be released in mid-September at Verizon Wireless.
The folks over at DroidDog
managed to get their hands on the first press photo of the smartphone, which seems to confirm the release date of Optimus Vu for September 15.
Keep in mind that this release date is subject to change, so we should take the information with a grain of salt until Verizon comes forward with an official statement.
Anyway, expect LG Optimus Vu to come with Android 4.0
Ice Cream Sandwich operating system out of the box, integrated with Optimus 3.0 user interface.
The Optimus Vu sports a large 5.0-inch HD IPS capacitive touchscreen display that supports 768 x 1024 pixels resolution and 16 million colors.
There’s also 1GB of RAM inside, along with 32GB storage, which cannot be further expanded due to lack of microSD card slot. Stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
