LG's quest to conquer smartphone market is unstoppable these days. After announcing LG G2, the South Korean giant is all set to bring Note 3 competitor. Reportedly, LG is in advance stages to unveil the third installment to VU smartphone.
The VU 3 is said to be a mid ranged device as per multiple sources. The successor to LG VU 2 would be priced slightly lesser than competing Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
Few days back, we had informed you about alleged specifications sheet surfaced on the web. The phone would have a 5.2-inch HD (4:3) display having resolution of 1280 x 960 pixels. Moreover, it would be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, making the phone premium in nature.
The VU 3 is also said to offer a 13MP camera with high quality imaging optics. Reports also suggest that LG VU 3 will arrive with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out of the box. Connectivity features like 4G LTE should be a part of next generation VU handset.
LG was rumored to announce VU 3 at this year's IFA tech show held in Berlin. South Korea's EtNews claim that LG could announce the device in the month of October 2013.
Now, LG has teased VU 3 via QuickVU Case, an accessory specially tailored for forthcoming VU 3. Interestingly, these cases are not manufactured by third party vendor, rather the makers behind G2 are trying to create buzz before hand.
LG has recently dropped "Optimus "name from its high-end devices. Since, VU 3 is primarily targeted at Note 3, it makes sense to name LG VU 3, instead of LG Optimus VU 3. A good look at QuickVU cases hinted at "LG VU 3" brand name.
The question here arises: According to media reports LG VU 3 is said to be a mid ranged handset. LG is not associating the world "Optimus "with VU 3 (as seen in the above mentioned cases). This could mean that LG VU 3 would be priced on a higher side.
And LG VU 3 should not be compared with Samsung Galaxy Note 3. The former device will have a 5.2-inchHD display, whereas Note 3 comes with 5.7-inch Super AMOLED FHD display. Other than display size, the Galaxy Note 3 has better value proposition, when it comes to additional software packaged inside the device. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates.
