We have been hearing rumors that LG is looking to launch a new phablet device called the Vu 3. It is expected to be the successor to the LG Vu 2, and sure enough the Korean company has announced the handset, corroborating the rumors that the device could be announced this month. Interestingly enough LG has decided to stick to the 4:3 aspect ratio which gives the handset a boxy kind of look, versus a more rectangular feel compared to devices like the LG G2 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, but we guess there must be a reason behind it.
As far as specs are concerned, the LG Vu 3 is no slouch and will sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset, a 13MP rear-facing camera, and Carrier Aggregation technology which can apparently double the speeds of LTE-Advanced. However in terms of display, the Vu 3 is a bit of a disappointment compared to the competition and only sports a 5.2” 1280×960 display, versus the Full HD ones found on newer Android models. The handset will also come bundled with a stylus and other features that are found on the G2, such as Knock On or Knock Knock for unlocking the device, a Guest Mode, and Plug & Pop just to name a few. No word on how much it is expected to cost, but the LG Vu 3 will launch on the 27th of September.
