LG Vu 3 Announced: Boasts 5.2 inch 4:3 HD display, Snapdragon 800 processor

The LG Vu 3 was announced today, a sequel to last year’s Optimus Vu and Vu 2, though LG has dropped the Optimus name since then.


The Vu 3 boasts a 5.2 inch 1280 x 960 pixels IPS display at 4:3 aspect ratio, a 13 Megapixel rear camera with single LED flash, 2.1 Megapixel front facing camera for video calls, and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean all powered by a Snapdragon 800 2.26 GHz Quad-core processor with a 480 MHz Adreno 330 GPU and 2GB of RAM.

The phone has a larger display but is apparently only 0.2 inches larger than it’s predecessor according to LG. There’s the usual stylus, and the rubberdium stylus pen this time works with a new ‘Notebook’ feature that has new inputs and drawing tools such as acrylic paint, charcoal, etc. There’s also the same knock-on feature as the LG G2 where you tap the screen to wake the device from sleep, similar to Nokia’s Lumia line of devices.


The LG G2 will also have an optional Quick Window case similar to the G2, which seems to have an interesting translucent feature. No word on pricing just yet folks, but this will hit Korea on September 27th, with LTE-Advanced and TDMB support.
