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

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.
