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]
