Upcoming LG Vu III Rumored to Sport 5.2″ HD Display and Snapdragon 800 Processor

lg optimus vu

Whatever your personal opinions of the Vu family from LG may be, they do exist, and apparently people are buying them. In some cases, people are even loving the Intuition that is on Verizon. In a recent report, some specs for the upcoming Vu III hit the web, and while the design of the Vu usually makes us run for the hills, the specs do make us a tiny bit interested. 

According to the rumored list, the Vu III could come packed with a 5.2″ display with a resolution of 1280 x 960 (not Full HD 1080p), a Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13MP back-facing camera and support for LTE-Advanced mobile networks. Could it be that LG is pumping more of an investment in this portfolio to make it appear more desirable? And could it be that Verizon is selling enough of these to pick the next one up on their network? These are the types of questions that keep us up at night.

Seriously, if you currently own an LG Vu, let us know down below why and what you like about it. We are genuinely curious.

    Dear LG, nobody wants this weird phone… Spend your money and time building another iteration of the G2, learn something from Sammy!

  • Guy Pierce

    Hey look at that! Just as ugly as the first two!

  • MacNificent

    haha LG is selling the i*ad minier on verizon. cant wait to get my hands on it

  • joejoe5709

    Weird how it’s basically a G2 with a lower resolution screen. Eh. Even if it’s cheap I’m sure a little extra coinage would be worth the bump in screen spec.

  • mustbepbs

    There was a Vu 2?

      HOW DOES THIS HAVE TWO DOWNVOTES?!
      This is exactly how I feel about this phone!

      • Smeckle

        Maybe they work for LG.

  • Justin Kos

    Is it just me or are screen sizes getting too big? (Current nexus 4 user)

  • Tyler

    Kill it with fire!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • ChrisI

    Knock, knock…
    Who is it?
    Vu…
    Vu who?
    Exactly.

  • Raj Bhatt

    I am still looking forward to the G2. If it gets AOKP support, then maybe I won’t miss having a Nexus.

    Intuition: Worst Android phone of all time? Survey says…

    • tyguy829

      Nah. Motorola Devour

      • SA_NYC

        What the heck is that?? Ha, just googled it, beauty.

        • tyguy829

          Haha it came out on Verizon a good 3-4 months AFTER the OG Droid with worse specs, an enormous bezel, and Android 1.6! There was no reason to get it over the droid, but Verizon really thought it would sell, so they dished out stacks to do a superbowl commercial with Megan Fox for it. It was a disaster

          • hkklife

            LOL, I had almost forgotten about that POS!

            I remember the only redeeming thing in the Devour’s favor over the OG D1 was that it had a separate row for numbers and better keyboard tactile response. Other than that it was an unmitigated disaster.

            I think I read somewhere a while back that the Devour was actually on track to be Moto’s debut Android device but the OG Droid was fast-tracked to be the launch/hero device and the Devour was put on the back burner…and it showed!

    just let the VU die LG!

  • jbdan

    Vu? Never heard of it…..

    • hkklife

      The original Vu/Intuition was arguably the worst modern smartphone I have ever seen, certainly the worst on VZW rom a big-name manufacturer. Nearly impossible to hold, ugly, no stylus silo, bad aspect ratio for movie watching (4:3) and supported by very few games. its only redeeming feature was that it had 32 gigs internal storage which was not a common feature at the time of its release.

      But anything powered by a Snapdragon 800 deserves a 2nd look, so I will wait & reserve judgment on this one.

      • ddh819

        not that the Intuition was a great phone, but i think the 4:3 aspect ratio is better for web browsing on a tablet.

        • hkklife

          Yep, that’s why I said movie watching and not web browsing or e-book reading. I personally like 8″ 4:3 tablets as a nice in-between size, which is probably why the iPad Mini is so successful.

      • a) youth.in.asia

        Just shows you that the 4:3 aspect ratio doesn’t work for the newer generation

      • Ryan Hansele

        It does come with a stylus. Someone is rushed to judge

        • hkklife

          I know it came with a stylus. That’s why I specifically said a stylus *SILO*, as in an internal housing designed to store it within the device. Any device with any kind of stylus or S-Pen or whatever should make the proper accommodation to store it within the body so it doesn’t get lost.
