LG Optimus Vu in tutto il mondo da settembre, ma con Tegra 3 anziché Snapdragon

Nicola Ligas

LG cambia lievemente le carte in tavola in merito al suo primo phablet, che abbiamo toccato con mano ormai diversi mesi fa negli stand di Barcellona del Mobile World Congress, sostituendo la CPU Snapdragon dual-core a vantaggio di un più performante Tegra 3 quad-core.

Il nuovo chip accompagnerà l’Optimus Vu in Europa, Asia, Africa, Middle East, e America Latina il prossimo settembre, in occasione del lancio globale che è stato annunciato per il prossimo mese dall’azienda coreana, probabilmente per mettere i bastoni tra le ruote all’imminente Galaxy Note II.

Invariate le altre specifiche, ovvero l’insolito display a 4:3 da 5 pollici a 768 x 1024, i generosi 32 GB di memoria interna e le fotocamere da 8 MP (posteriore) e 1,3 MP (anteriore). Assente invece la radio LTE che aveva accompagnato il phablet nella sua versione con processore Qualcomm.

Prezzi ancora ignoti, ma non mancheremo di comunicarveli non appena l’Optimus Vu sarà avvistato nel nostro paese. Comunicato stampa originale a seguire.

SEOUL, Aug. 20, 2012 -– On the heels of its successful debut in Korea and Japan, the Optimus Vu: will make its global debut starting in select markets in Europe, Asia, Middle East/Africa and Latin America starting in September. With the world’s first 5-inch 4:3 aspect ratio display, the Optimus Vu: blurs the line between traditional tablets and smartphones for a truly unique smart device experience.

Since its March debut in Korea, the Optimus Vu: has sold over 500,000 units, demonstrating public acceptance of its form-factor. The reception the device received in Korea prompted LG to launch the Optimus Vu: in Japan this month, where it has also been received positively by Japanese consumers.

For the global roll-out, the Optimus Vu: will be equipped with NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 mobile processor, the super 4-PLUS-1™ quad-core with 5th battery-saver core, that offers a superb balance of performance and power requirements. 4 cores are used for high performance tasks such as games and multitasking. For voice call, email, music and video playback, only 5th battery-saver core is enabled and it consumes very 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 pocketable and spacious. The Optimus Vu: will come with an upgraded version of QuickMemo™ and Notebook, two features which make great use of the large display real estate.

“The different form factor makes Optimus Vu: unique even in the 5-inch smartphone category which we expect will catch on once they become more widely available,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.
