The LG Optimus Vu has appeared in a picture next to the Samsung Galaxy Note, giving us all a great side by side look at the next phablet to hit the pipeline. As we can see from the picture, the Vu's overall size is pretty close to the Note, meaning both are big, bold, and in your face. The 5.3-inch Note is slightly taller than the Vu, but the latter's 4:3 aspect ratio makes it the wider of the two. The unofficial specs are said to be a 1024x768 display, a dual-core Qualcomm WPQ8060 processor running at 1.5GHz, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of ROM, and an 8-megapixel camera.
We still don't know much more about this one, but now that it's showing off for the camera we expect we will see it at Mobile World Congress in a week or so. The real question remains -- is the world ready for a phone this big, or are we entering the tablet space once we go past ginormous on the size chart?
