Verizon to launch Optimus Vu as the LG Intuition, $199.99 on contract

Optimus Vu Verizon Renames

Earlier this month, LG (06657011) announced that its smartphone-tablet hybrid, the Optimus Vu, would be arriving in the U.S at the end of September. According to Droid-Life, the device will be launching on Verizon’s 4G LTE network as the LG Intuition for $199.99 with a new two-year agreement. The Optimus Vu was unveiled earlier this year at Mobile World Congress sporting a massive 5-inch display and a 1.5GHz dual-core processor. While the device hasn’t matched the success of the Galaxy Note, LG revealed the phablet has sold more than 500,000 units since March. The Intuition will face tough competition on Verizon’s (VZ) network from the Galaxy S III, the upcoming iPhone and HTC’s rumored 5-inch smartphone.

LG’s Optimus Vu ‘phablet’ coming to U.S. by the end of September

LG Optimus Vu Release Date

Verizon (VZ) customers who have been looking on in envy at AT&T (T) customers’ gigantic Samsung (005930) Galaxy Notes can rest easy because they will soon have a “phablet” to call their own. Unwired View points to an LG (066570) press release stating that the five-inch Optimus Vu will be released in the United States by the end of September, meaning Samsung’s popular Galaxy Note will finally get some competition in the supersized smartphone space. Although no carrier has been officially named yet, all signs point to Verizon supporting the Optimus Vu on its LTE network when it launches. In addition to its large 5-inch screen, the Optimus Vu will feature a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and an 8-megapixel camera.

Verizon to get a ‘phablet’ of its own: LG Optimus Vu images leak ahead of launch

Verzon LG Optimus Vu Photos

LG announced its Optimus Vu smartphone-tablet hybrid at Mobile World Congress in February. Unlike its closest competitor, the Galaxy Note, the Vu features an odd 4:3 aspect ratio and a rather unsightly design. The oversized “phablet” was also released with less fanfare than the Note, which has been quite successful according to Samsung. LG is still determined to bring the phablet stateside, however. Late last month the Vu showed up at the FCC with support for Verizon’s 4G LTE network and now, according to images obtained by AndroidPolice, the device isn’t far off.

The Vu is shown with Verizon branding on the front, and the company’s usual 4G LTE logo on the rear. Unlike its Korean counterpart, the U.S.-bound phablet will run Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, although other specs have not been confirmed. The international Vu is equipped with a 5-inch IPS display with a 1024 x 768 pixel resolution, along with a dual-core Snapdragon S3 processor clocked at 1.5GHz, 1GB of RAM, a stylus and an 8-megapixel rear camera.

LG Optimus Vu may be headed to Verizon

LG Optimus Vu Verizon Launch

Engadget has found a Federal Communications Commission filing detailing what looks to be a new version of the LG Optimus Vu with radio specs tailored for Verizon’s 4G LTE network. Although the model in the FCC filing is dubbed the “LG VS950,” it’s pretty clearly the Optimus Vu as Engadget notes that a picture of the device in the filing “shows the exact same speaker grille setup on the lower left as well as the SIM flap on the upper right” as well as “something that looks curiously like an antenna on the top left – in the very same place as the Korean Optimus Vu.” For those who need a refresher about the Optimus Vu, which debuted earlier this year at Mobile World Congress, it’s a Galaxy Note-style “phablet” with a large 5-inch screen, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and an 8-megapixel camera.

LG’s 5-inch Optimus Vu shipping soon in white (in Korea, at least)

white lg optimus vu smartphone

Just under two months after LG's Optimus Vu got priced for the hometown market, in flies news that another hue will soon be on those very same shelves. The 5-inch, 4:3 ratio'd Android smartphone will soon hit South Korea in white, purportedly targeting the "younger" market -- you know, folks who like "cool" things (a translation for "refreshing," we're told). Folks can look for the device -- which should remain unchanged outside of the external color -- to hit SK Telecom as early as next week, but there's no word on when (or if) it'll spread to other markets.

LG's 5-inch Optimus Vu shipping soon in white (in Korea, at least) originally appeared on Engadget on Tue, 24 Apr 2012 00:27:00 EDT. Please see our terms for use of feeds.
