LG Optimus Vu launched in India for Rs. 34,500
LG has now launched its very first tablet devices in the Indian market, this device is called the LG Optimus Vu. The phablet is priced at Rs. 34,500 and will go up directly against Samsung’s Galaxy Note II which is priced at Rs. 39,000.
The Optimus Vu was first unveiled by the company at MWC earlier this February and it is a 5-inch device which has a 4:3 aspect ratio and a 1024×768 pixels resolution. The Optimus Vu is powered by a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor clocked at 1.5GHz, it has 1GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage capacity.
The LG Optimus Vu also sports an 8megapixel rear camera, a secondary front facing 1.3 megapixel camera and a 2080mAh battery. The device comes with its own stylus and just like the Galaxy Note, the device comes with some pre-loaded apps which make use of the stylus input and it runs Android 4.0 ICS.
In terms of hardware, the Optimus Vu is not as good as the Galaxy Note II which is powered by a slightly better processor, has huge battery, bigger screen and the stylus input has been heavily optimized. However, this phablet from LG does cost a little less.
