LG drew a lot of media attention at this year’s MWC, if not with the quality of the unveiled devices, at least with the sheer number of new phones. To recap, we saw three Optimus L II handhelds, two Fs and the Optimus G Pro in Barcelona already.
And yet the LG smartphones keep on coming. The latest is called Optimus Vu 2 Plus (such a horrible, horrible name) and is due out in China “soon”. No words on a release outside Asia, but the Vu family members tend to be exclusive to the continent.
So, what does the Vu 2 Plus bring new to the table compared with the “old” Vu 2? Based on existing info, a processor with two extra cores, a superior 13 MP camera and a bumped up battery (2,540 mAh vs. 2,150.) Also, the Optimus Vu 2 is currently receiving an Android 4.1.2 update.
Meanwhile, the 5-inch IPS panel will still boast a fairly run-of-the-mill 1,024 x 768 pixels resolution. All in all, the Optimus Vu 2 Plus sounds like a welcome, though hardly massive upgrade.
