LG Announces Global Availability of Optimus VU

Largest LG Smartphone to Be Launched in Europe, Asia, Middle East/Africa and Latin America

(PresseBox) (Zurich, )
On the heels of its successful debut in Korea and Japan, the Optimus Vu: will make its global debut starting 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 the fast 4-PLUS-1(TM) NVIDIA Tegra 3 Quad-Core processor that offers a superb balance of performance and power requirements. When paired with the 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(TM) and Notebook, two features which make great use of the large display real estate.

"The different form factor makes Optimus Vu: unique even in the 5-inch smartphone category which we expect will catch on once they become more widely available," said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.
