LG Electronics officially launched its 5″ phablet– the Optimus Vu– in the Indian market for Rs 34,500/-, as a potential competition to Samsung Galaxy Note II (priced @ Rs 39,990/-). The company declared this smartphone for the first time at the Mobile World Conference in Barcelona this year.

The 5-inched beast operates Android Ice Cream Sandwich, and not Jelly Bean like Note II. It’s armored with a 1.5GHz quad core processor with 1GB RAM. The screen has a 1024×768 pixel resolution with IPS display. The primary camera is 8MP strong with LED flash, while the front camera is a decent 1.3MP. The 2080mAh battery promises about 15 hours of 3G talktime. For connectivity, the phablet supports Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC. It comes with an internal storage capacity of 32GB. Also, there’s a rubberdium stylus that tags, but a point to note is that this stylus has no internal slot for itself in the phone.
