LG has announced a new device in its quirky 4:3 aspect ratio Vu product line, the Vu 3. Initially headed to the company's native South Korea, the Vu 3 will pack a 5.2-inch, 1280x960-resolution display and run Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 800 chip. There's a built-in stylus this time too, an improvement upon earlier Vu handsets which provided a pen that couldn't be siloed away. The appears to be running LG's software tricks, which we've recently seen on the G2, so it's likely running at least Android 4.2.
Other highlights include a 13-megapixel camera and LTE-A support for super-fast Korean mobile networks, as well as a range of optional "QuickView" covers, just like the G2. The Vu 3 will arrive in Korea from this Friday, Sept. 27; there's currently no indication as to whether a wider international launch is planned.
