Here's an unusual new device. LG released a teaser video for a new Phablet-Phone, called the Optimus VU. This is a 5-inch Android smartphone, but what is particularly odd about it is that it uses the old school 4:3 aspect ratio for its screen, and is closer to a square shape, than a portrait shape. We've included the teaser video above for you to get a look at, but the pic below gives a better view of this strange device.
It actually has some decent specs to go with the screen:
- 1.5GHz Qualcomm APQ8060 SoC Dual-Core Chip
- 1GB RAM
- 8GB ROM
- Eight megapixel camera
- Android 2.3
The screen in the pic shows a "February 21st" date, which could be a hint at its launch date. The device may only end up in Korea, but there is nothing specific to confirm that. Sound off what you think of this "almost-square" device.
