LG Optimus Vu Now Available in Korea

LG was fast at work to get their devices launched following their Mobile World Congress announcements. One of those devices is the LG Optimus Vu and it’s now available in South Korea carriers SK Telecom and LG U+. The 5 inch 4:3 aspect ratio device was unveiled last week with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, digitized pen support, an 8MP camera, 8GB of internal storage, 1GB of RAM and more. Samsung has long had a stronghold on the Korean market and we won’t be surprised if LG has a tough time knocking them down. LG has struggled in the smartphone game for quite some time and it remains to be seen whether or not their latest round of devices will inspire people to buy them. [LG via Android Central]

    Has LG ever upgraded an Android phone they’ve released? Android updates are the first step towards consumer confidence. If I could buy one with the expectation that it would get a future upgrade, then I might consider it. Until LG can change that perception, they can keep scraping the bottom of the barrel for all I care.

    My question is, has LG ever made something of their own design without taking from Samsung so much. Even their ui is a direct copy from touchwiz.

    I’m all about 5″+ phones but not at 4:3 ratio!  Why can’t they make a decent Android tablet at 4:3 ?!
