LG Makes The Optimus Vu II Official – 2GB RAM, Bigger Battery On Board

The LG Optimus Vu, which launched on Verizon as the LG Intuition with Verizon earlier this month, was undoubtedly a strange device. Taking a page from Samsung's – ahem – note book, LG created the Vu for the phablet market, but decided to go with a somewhat awkward 4:3 aspect ratio, adding to the device's laundry list of quirks.

Well, the Korean manufacturer has just officially announced the Vu's successor – the Optimus Vu II.

The Thin And Light LG Venice Is Coming To Boost Mobile On October 10th For $219

Boost Mobile has just announced yet another option to its Android-powered entourage: the LG Venice. The 4.3" Venice is touted as an "ultra-thin" and light handset, and at only one-third of an inch thick with a weight of 4.41 oz, it affirms that claim.

The phone ships with fairly average specs: 1GHz processor, 1GB RAM, 5MP rear shooter, VGA front camera, and Android 4.0. The device will go on sale beginning October 10th for a modest $219 and is "paired with Boost Mobile's no-contract $55 Android Monthly Unlimited plan."

LG Intuition Review: Quirky Can Be Fun - Unless You Sacrifice Everything To Get There

If you're a close follower of tech, you're probably familiar with the LG Intuition, or at least its European brother, the Optimus Vu. The major selling point: a 5", 1024x768 (4:3) display. Sure, the other specs are noteworthy in that they match other high-end phones, with a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 CPU, 1GB RAM, Android 4.0, and LTE. But that massively wide screen is undoubtedly going to be the talking point.

CyanogenMod 10 Nightlies For The LG Optimus Black Are Go

It has been quite a long while since I've heard the name "LG Optimus Black," but it seems that Team CyanogenMod hasn't forgotten about this once-powerful handset. The first CM10 nightly for the 4" handset just showed up on Get.CM, and unlike other CM10 devices, has made this jump directly from CM7.

Definition: A "nightly" is a bleeding edge release that is built on a daily basis, usually at night after a full day's worth of new code has been committed.

The LG Venice (AKA The Optimus L7) With First-gen Snapdragon Leaked For Boost Mobile, Exactly No One Celebrates

Remember a few months ago when LG showed off its new Optimus L series, with three new Android-powered smartphones across several price points? Yeah, neither do we. But in any case, the biggest and relatively baddest of those phones will be available on Sprint subsidiary Boost Mobile sometime in the near future, under the new alias of the LG Venice. EV Leaks got a hold of an official photo of the device - we've only got their word that it's coming to Boost, but they're usually spot-on with this sort of thing.

Hands-On With LG's New Quad-Core Powerhouse, The Optimus G

Greetings from New York! LG showed off the Optimus G today, their new monster of a phone. If you haven’t heard, it’s the first phone with a 1.5Ghz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor. Qualcomm's dual-core chips can hold their own against the quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3, so this should be one of the fastest phones available. It’s also one of the first phones to have a next-gen Adreno 320 GPU, which, again, means it should be really fast.

LG Confirms That The Optimus G Will Launch In The US In November, Carrier Details Absent

LG has confirmed that its upcoming flagship, the Optimus G, will be launching in the United States this November. Carrier partners went unannounced, but given LG's historical relationship with Verizon, we'd hedge our bets there first and foremost, though AT&T could be another likely contender for the first major handset released with a quad-core Qualcomm processor.

We do know the Optimus G is packing LTE, but that it must be courtesy of a discrete radio, as the APQ8064 Qualcomm S4 Pro chipset does not include a cellular modem.

LG Teases A Smartphone Announcement Set For September 19th, Promises A Life 'Without Boundaries'

"I know you're out there. I can feel you now. I know that you're afraid. You're afraid nothing's going to change. I don't know the future. I didn't come here to tell you what's going to be announced. I came here to tell you how it's going to be teased. I'm going to send out this invite, and then I'm going to show these people what they want to see. I'm going to show them a world without Samsung, or HTC.
