SEOUL, South Korea – In an official press release, LG announced its plans to release the flagship smartphone Optimus Vu globally in September.
The phone will be available next month in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia, Latin America and then the U.S. sometime this quarter.
The Optimus Vu is already available for the markets of Korea and Japan, but the international version will pack even more punch than expected. The phone will be released with the latest Nvidia processor – the quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3, rather than the dual-core Snapdragon S3 found in the Korean and Japanese variants.
Technical specifications of the phone list a 5-inch screen, Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), an 8 MP rear-camera, a 1.3MP front-facing camera and 32GB of storage. Other differences with the already released version of the phone include lack of the quirk looking slide-out antenna for watching digital TV broadcasts.
Another impressive fact about the LG Optimus Vu is that the phone already managed to sell in 500.000 units since its release in Japan and South Korea.
