Verizon's LTE-enabled version of the LG Optimus Vu is showing more signs of life. Aside from the $199 pricetag that we already know about, some fresh images of the device have bubbled up. Although it's far from a guarantee, the home screen weather widget suggests a launch day of September 15 - a sensible time to get the back-to-school rush and LG has announced that the Vu would have a global launch in September, but pencil that date in your calendars lightly.

While the specs of the U.S. variant haven't been confirmed, the one that has launched across Japan and Korea has a  a 5-inch 768 x 1024 touch display, 8 megapixel camera (plus secondary 1.3 megapixel shooter on the front), 32 GB of local storage, and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. 

As far LG handsets go, most eyes are on the upcoming Optimus G and its gapless display, which we're likely to see sooner than later with IFA right around the corner. Have any of you guys been hurting for a version of the Optimus Vu on Verizon, or will it be worth holding out for the Optimus G?

LG Intuition press shot leaks, hints at September 15 release


Awesome job Verizon, thank goodness you guys passed on the Note so we could have the Intuition (rolls eyes and shakes fists at the sky). Further proof that Verizon has the worst lineup ever....

yeah, question is will the new LG super photos ne even make it to Verizon... I am thinking of LG, as I have come across a lot of HTC lemons... love the phones but lots of Mic problems and other issues, tired of sending I. warranty claims. would be happy with HTC if they could make a one x with battery worth a darn and realistickies internal storage. if cyanogenmod will make a Rom for it I would take LG with their nice screen. Samsung is just killing me with their dam home buttons...

also the vu is equal to the original note as it was released in Jan. and is nice hardware and not outdated but nothing new either....

Leak? Every day there is a phone that is supposedly "leaked". When I see the word leak I'm thinking ok this device was not suppose to be seen and some random nobody actually gave us photos of the phone.........What the word leaked has come to on here is more of just building hype for some random phone since they have nothing else to report.....So i really doubt this phone was "leaked" if so it was on purpose
