LG Optimus Vu II official

While the first LG Optimus Vu was originally introduced in February 2012, it only recently made it to U.S. shelves as the Intuition on Verizon. Now, less than a month after the Vu's stateside debut, the device's successor as been unveiled in Korea. LG has officially introduced the Optimus Vu II, a device that features the same 5-inch display with a 4:3 aspect ratio as the original model. The full spec rundown for the Optimus Vu II is as follows:

  • 5-inch, 4:3 display with a resolution of 1024x768
  • 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8960 processor
  • 8-megapixel rear, 1.3-megapixel front cameras
  • 2GB RAM
  • External memory card slot
  • 2,150mAh battery
  • Rubberdium Pen 2.0 that's thinner than the original
  • "One Key" accessory that'll make the phone beep to help users find it
  • 4G LTE, VoLTE support
  • Infrared support and QRemote app, as we'd previously heard
  • NFC
  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich

The LG Optimus Vu II will be available in Black, Illusion White or Illusion Pink in Korea. Unfortunately for those of us in the U.S., there's no word yet on when or if we might see this thing stateside. Here's to hoping that it follows in the footsteps of its large-phone brother, the Galaxy Note II, and lands here shortly after its international debut. So does this refreshed spec sheet have you interested in the Optimus Vu II and its 5-inch, 4:3 form factor?
