As Samsung released 5.3″ Galaxy Note in February 2012, it is a start of a whole new ballgame in the U.S. phone market. And luckily for Samsung, over 10 million people welcomed these features that were once thought of as unacceptable, and now LG is knocking on the phone/tablet hybrid’s door with its own “phablet”: The LG Intuition.
LG Intuition (known as the Optimus Vu abroad) Vu which was announced during the Mobile World Congress earlier this year, is about to made its first footstep in United States to be available under the brand name as LG Intuition.
The LG Intuition differs from its international counterpart in two major ways: the U.S. version ships natively with the more recent Android 4.0, and it lacks the throwback TV antenna that the Vu had. It does, however, retain the same ginormous 5-inch screen, Rubberdium stylus, and 8-megapixel camera.
LG Intuition packs with a 5″, 1024×768 (4:3) display, a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 CPU, 1GB RAM, and LTE.
The Intuition is a wild-looking device unlike anything Android has ever run on. It is both a phone and a tablet.
