Those of us that were hoping for Verizon Wireless to launch the Samsung Galaxy Note will have to settle for the oddly-shaped Optimus Vu. Although nothing has been confirmed, a device that appeared to be the Optimus Vu was spotted at the FCC, complete with Verizon’s 4G LTE logo, a model number associated with Verizon devices, and because of the frequency that was tested.
The picture above, which was found in the FCC documents, shows an LG device with model number LG-VS950, a number that matches the scheme of previously-released LG devices on Verizon. You can also see the nice-looking 4G LTE logo on the device, the biggest give away that this is heading to Verizon. The biggest indicator that this device is the LG Vu (or a variant), is its weird shaped.
While the LG Vu features a 5-inch display (compared to the Galaxy Note’s 5.3-inch display), its 4:3 aspect ratio makes it looks like it’s on steroids, and also harder to handle in one hand. Despite the Galaxy Note having a larger screen, it’s 16:10 aspect ratio doesn’t make it look weird.
Of course, we won’t know anything until it’s made official by Verizon and LG. If this does end up being true, I guess many people who were hoping for the Galaxy Note will be disappointed. Are you looking forward to the LG Vu landing on Verizon Wireless? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
