Both are going to compete against each other in the days to come. Here we compare specs of Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and LG Optimus Vu 2, two giants of phones
LG has surfaced the Optimus Vu II, second upgrade to its Galaxy Note killer phablet. The revamped big-screen phone advances with the same boxy form factor of its precursor. Some modifications are visible in the innards and features, although. It seems that the Korean tech firm targets the next gen Galaxy Note 2 with the new Optimus Vu 2. But, the LG handset seems to be a small fry when compared with the new Note 2 that comes with a large 5.5-inch display and quad processor.
LG Optimus Vu 2; Tech Specs and Features
As mentioned above, there are no significant changes in the design of the Optimus Vu 2. LG has just copied the form factor of its original version. First of all, the phablet keeps up the same boxy look and it also has the same 5-inch display, which is outclassed by the Note 2’s 5.5-inch display. The same 1024×768 pixel resolution and 4:3 aspect ration are also kept up by LG.
Under the hood, the new Vu II is to tout a rather powerful 1.5GHz dual core Qualcomm S4 CPU plus 2GB of RAM. The device mounts an 8MP rear camera and it sports 16GB of internal memory, which you expand in help of microSD card slot. The phablet is to feature Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, instead of the latest Jelly Bean version. It will also come with a stylus for easy navigation on the large screen, LG says.
It will have a bigger 2150mAh battery for better performance. Other features contain MHL TV-Out, NFC, DLNA, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct and more. The Vu 2 also features voice-over LTE support (VOLTE). The optional waterproof keyfob accessory will let you locate the handset if you mislay it. Lights up for notifications and battery charging statuses are other major attractions. It is set to come in three colors; black, white and pink.
LG Optimus Vs 2 Vs Samsung Galaxy Note 2
Compared with the upcoming Note 2, the newly announced Optimus Vu 2 is just dwarfish. Well, the device has a 5-inch display with 4:3 aspect ratio. Even though, it is not easy for a user to carry around the device in pocket. On the other hand, the new Galaxy Note 2 is to offer a 5.5-inch display and 16:9 aspect ratio; but the device, thanks to its thinner body and curved edges, is easy for handling.
“My colleague Armando Rodriguez found that the wide form factor made the phone uncomfortable to hold for long periods of time. In comparison, the Galaxy Note II has an even larger screen, at 5.5 inches, but with a 16:9 aspect ratio that makes the phone narrower and easier to handle,” writes Daniel Ionescu of Tech Hive.
When it comes to the innards, Note 2 is to come with a great 1.6GHz quad-core Exynos processor, 2GB of RAM and better storage options including 64GB. To top it all, the Note 2 is to feature Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box. It is might a great missing in the Vu 2, which will run on the ICS initially. Of course, in many other aspects like camera, connectivity and battery, the Note 2 is rather better than its LG rival.
LG Optimus Vu 2 Release Date and Price
The Optimus Vu II will soon hit the South Korean market. Indeed, it is not the time to expect the handset to arrive in the U.S.; because the U.S. variant of its original dubbed the LG Intuition is yet to appear in the country. In Korea, the Optimus Vu 2 will cost some around $860 unlocked. There is not a word on how much the U.S. carriers will charge for the device when it hits stores.
