LG Optimus Vu to Lose LTE and Gain Quad-Core in it’s Global Debut
Remember the LG Optimus Vu? No? Well allow me to jog your memory. Back in February we filled you in on LG’s then upcoming Optimus Vu, a square-shaped phone with a 4:3 aspect ratio. At the time, we certainly were not enamored with the phone. Since then, the phone was released, but not globally. Fast forward to now, and LG has announced the Optimus Vu will finally be released globally, but with some different specs than before. Unfortunately, the Optimus Vu will remain square and maintain the oddball 4:3 aspect ratio present in the Korean variant. Where it does improve, is instead of the 1.5ghz dual-core Snapdragon S3 processor it featured before, it will now sport a more capable 1.5ghz quad-core Tegra 3 processor. Sadly, just as it gained a new spec, the Optimus Vu is also losing one, as the global variant will not be LTE capable. Those awaiting the release of the new and improved Optimus Vu, won’t have to wait long as LG will be releasing the strangely square smartphone in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America in September.
