The device lineup of Verizon is set to receive another entry as the LG Optimus Vu is expected to be offered through the US-based mobile service provider.

The LG Optimus Vu is a five-inch smartphone/tablet hybrid similar to the Samsung Galaxy Note although it was not given much regard by a number of industry watchers probably because of its rather large appearance compared to the South Korean device.  Despite this design oversight, the features and the performance of the device are still considered notable enough for a number of industry watchers.

The device will use the Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0 OS out-of-the-box. The LG Optimus Vu will come with a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, and an internal storage of 32GB. Its five-inch screen display has a resolution of 1024 x 768 and an aspect ratio of 4:3, making it easier to view web pages and read documents.

The LG Optimus Vu also features a 1.3MP front camera, an 8MP rear camera, and near field communication or NFC technology.

The phablet or phone / tablet hybrid is currently available through AT&T as well as T-Mobile. The LG Optimus Vu is wider and shorter compared to the Galaxy Note with a length of 5.5inches and width of 3.5 inches. In comparison the Samsung Galaxy Note has a length and width of 5.78 inches and 3.27 inches respectively.

The LG Optimus Vu also offers a bigger internal storage compared to the Samsung Galaxy Note although its screen resolution is lower compared to the Samsung device. The LG device also offers more stylus-optimized applications.

The release date and pricing of the LG Optimus Vu of Verizon has yet to be announced by the mobile service provider.
