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?
