LG showed off the Optimus Vu II, their latest phablet at the CES 2013 that already launched in Korea last year. We got some hands-on time with the device that has a 5-inch (1,024 x 768 pixels) IPS display with a 4:3 Aspect Ratio similar to the Optimus Vu. 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 processor powers the device and it runs on Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) with Optimus UI 3.0 on top. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update expected soon. It has a 1.3 Megapixel front-facing camera, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal memory and a expandable memory card slot.
At the back there is an Megapixel Auto-focus with BIS sensor and LED Flash. The phone has nice pattern on the back. It comes in Black and Illusion White colors.
It has 4G LTE with VoLTE support in Korea. Other features include, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, DLNA, Wi-Fi direct, Bluetooth 4.0/APT-X Codec, HDMI via MHL, NFC and Miracast support. It packs a 2,150 mAh battery. It is expected in the global markets soon.
