In February this year, LG unveiled the Optimus Vu, a 5-inch smartphone with format 4:3 running Android 4.0 aka Ice Cream Sandwich. Today, the manufacturer says it will be available in certain countries in the world and changing its main SoC: the Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 will be eplaced with NVIDIA Tegra 3.
The first release of Optimus Vu was in Korea and has sold 500,000 pieces after the release of the brand, which in the end is not so bad for this country alone. However it is still way far from its competitor Samsung. We also found out that Samsung Galaxy Note which is scheduled for August 29, have crossed the 10 million sold units, a nice score for this gargantuan smartphone.
As we mentioned above, the technical details of this Optimus Vu is virtually unchanged, you can see that everything is the same as on SoC Snapdragon S3 dual-core 1.5 GHz, but this time it will be replaced with NVIDIA Tegra 3 whos frequency is not specified.
It will be available next month in Europe, Asia and South America. By cons, LG does not indicate price for this Optimus Vu. In next few days LG should announce technical details and prices for this spartphone, and then we will see if Optimus Vu will be able to compete with mighty Galaxy Note 2.
