The LG Optimus Vu is a huge smartphone with a 5 inch display size. Take a look at this comparison photo of the Optimus Vu and the Samsung Galaxy Note

LG Optimus Vu and Samsung Note 

Samsung Galaxy Note was, together with the Dell Streak a new type of smartphone. They are much larger than a normal smartphone and they might be too large for most users. The large size start to limit where you can bring the phone with you as these giants does not always fit in normal pockets.

LG wants to enter this market and the company will soon announce the LG Optimus Vu. Except for the 5 inch display size and 4:3 display aspect ratio, we do not know much about this new model. LG released a teaser video last week where we could see glimpses of the new device. 

This weekend we discovered a photo of the Optimus Vu and the Galaxy Note in a side-by-side comparison. The 4:3 aspect ratio is clearly visible here as the Optimus Vu is much wider than the Samsung Galaxy Note. We expect to see more of the Optimus Vu during MWC. The Optimus Vu is to the left:

4:3 looks weird and the display looks washed out compared to the note's but it might be because of the lightning and I know that there is no need to judge by looking at a low quality picture
