LG has announced that its Optimus Vu Android smartphone – available only in South Korea and Japan for now – will be released globally around the world in September. Select markets it Europe, Asia, Middle East, Africa and Latin America will get the handset.
Unlike the Vu introduced in Korea and Japan, the international version will have a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor. There are no changes when it comes to the handset’s other features: Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, 5 inch IPS display with 1024 x 768 pixels, 8MP rear camera with 1080p video recording, 1.3MP front-facing camera, 1GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal memory.
As previously mentioned, there will also be an LTE Optimus Vu for the US market – which should be launched by Verizon. This can’t come with an Nvidia processor (since Tegra doesn’t support LTE for now), so it will probably use the same 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm CPU the Korean version is using.
