5 inch LG Optimus Vu to take on Samsung Galaxy Note

It looks like LG wants a piece of the success Samsung is having with its 5.3 inch Galaxy Note, as the company is getting ready to introduce a 5-inch Android smartphone, too.

Called LG Optimus Vu (no real connection with the LG Vu and Vu Plus released by AT&T in the past), the new handset has appeared in an official teaser video that allows us to admire its thinness, its 5 inch screen with 1024 x 768 pixels (for an interesting 4:3 aspect ratio), and… not much else.

It’s said that the Optimus Vu features LTE connectivity, NFC, 8MP rear camera, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal memory.

Reportedly, the LG Optimus Vu will be launched with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, thus it’s likely that it is going to be out pretty soon. We’ll let you know when (and where) exactly.
