LG to launch 5-inch 4:3 aspect ratio phone

No, seriously


In an apparent effort to differentiate its high-end Android phones from the rest of the overcrowded market, LG has chosen to adopt a rather strange form factor for its upcoming Optimus Vu.

The phone features a 5-inch IPS display, but it’s a 4:3 unit, not 16:10 or 16:9. The resolution is 1024 x 768 and the phone basically looks like a tablet toddler.

In terms of specs, the Vu seems to have everything covered. It is powered by a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon, coupled with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. An 8MP camera is on board, along with NFC and LTE support is also rumoured but not confirmed.
