LG just couldn’t wait for Mobile World Congress to get underway on the 27th before showing off its new Optimus Vu handset. These new pics offer a much clearer look at its 4×3 aspect ratio, 1024×768 res, stylus-friendly 5-inch IPS LCD display, while the official specs confirm rumors it would pack a 1.5GHz dual core CPU, 8MP camera, LTE, 2080mAh battery and Android 2.3 in a slim 8.5mm thick frame. An upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich is promised within three months of its launch, currently scheduled for March on Korean carriers SK Telecom and LG+. For example, users can walk into an office and swipe a tag to put their phone in silent mode and activate WiFi. Using a tag on the car dashboard could be programmed to turn on Bluetooth, GPS and raise the volume.
The phone will go on sale in Korea late February for 800,000 Korean Won ($710).
