LG Vu 3 announced with 5.2 inch Screen powered by Snapdragon 800 Processor

When Samsung’s Galaxy Note phablet got success, LG also wanted to grab a pie of phablet market. So it launched Optimus Vu device against it. The device never got much attention, but that did not deter company to continue with the series. The series is now in third iteration and similar to recently announced flagship G2 has dropped Optimus branding from its name, and now called as LG Vu 3.

However it seems that the company is not learning from its past mistakes. The display of the Vu 3 has obsolete aspect ratio of 4:3 resulting in odd square-shaped design.

In terms of interesting features, it supports a Rubberdium stylus which can be hidden underneath the body. The stylus allows users to scribble their thoughts and doodle their imagination. It has software features such as KnockON, Guest Mode, Slide Aside, etc.on top of Android OS, which were first shown off in G2. LG has also launched a special case for the Vu 3 known as Quick View Cover. It’s a semi-transparent at the front to give the user a glimpse of unread notifications and time.

    Pity LG does not make it available internationally. Oversight. With 4:3 ratio It would be good for reading ebooks, browsing, making handwriting notes (with handwriting recognition into text).

    Many older computer scientists, and artists, writers, prefer fullscreen (4:3), hate widescreen, because of how many lines of text they can have, and because most art is closer to 4:3 shape or even square, so all I can say is the opinions of less intellectual/creative people on screen shape have always been obsolete… and it is hard for me to believe it is 4:3 because 1280×1024 is, but not likely 1280×960 (if you look up the shape and name defined for that resolution).
