LG Optimus Vu Ditches Qualcomm; Opts for Tegra While Going Global

August 20, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

With a global release round the bend, LG has announced that it will be featuring Tegra 3 processor instead of the earlier Qualcomm processor in its Optimus Vu.

The coming September will mark the global release of the handset and LG will be taking its device to Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America.

However, we feel customers stateside will most probably prefer the Qualcomm processor, instead of the Tegra due to the enhanced 4G LTE support the Qualcomm processor offers.

The NVIDIA Tegra 3 mobile processor is definitely a worthy alteration for other markets with its super 4-PLUS-1 quad-core with 5th battery-saver core, that offers a superb balance of performance and power requirements.

Four cores are used for high performance tasks such as games and multi-tasking. For voice call, email, music and video playback, only 5th battery-saver core is enabled and it consumes a lot less power.

When paired with the high-resolution 5-inch, 4:3 ratio IPS display, the Optimus Vu: becomes something special; a device that’s both portable and spacious.

The Optimus Vu will come with an upgraded version of QuickMemo and Notebook –  two features that make great use of the large display screen.

While LG is launching the device in September, Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy Note 2 on August 29, ahead of the IFA. So you can be certain that LG Optimus Vu will have some stiff competition.

With 500,000 units of the LG Optimus Vu sold in Korea, the other specs remain the same. It will include 1GB of RAM, 32GB of memory, an 8-megapixel camera and a 1.3 megapixel-front facing camera. Running on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, this device could truly be a delight from LG to its users.
