LG Optimus Vu II Announced for Korea; Comes with NFC and Built-in IR Blaster (Update)


Update: The LG Optimus VU II's specs have been leaked and will reportedly be powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 processor and 2GB of RAM. It will be running on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and feature a 5-inch, 1024 x 768 pixel screen with a 4:3 aspect ratio.

While we haven't gotten hold of the LG Optimus Vu yet in Singapore, LG has gone ahead and announced its successor, the Optimus Vu II. The device will be available in Korea in September - its list of specifications remains unknown for now but we are assuming that the device will take after its predecessor's 4:3 aspect ratio and 5-inch or bigger touch screen. Check out our hands-on article and video on the Optimus Vu during MWC here.

Here's what we know so far: the Optimus Vu II will support NFC and comes with a built-in IR blaster.

Techno Buffalo - "The device apparently allows you to control major LG electronics, including air conditioners, set-top boxes, televisions and other appliances, using its built-in IR blaster. and QRemote application. The app will support 300 local television stations in South Korea, as well as international stations."

We are expecting it to make a show at IFA this year, so stay tuned for more details as we bring you coverage straight from the floor in the next few days.
