LG Optimus Vu Compares its Display Against a Widescreen Android

Advertisement

LG revealed plans for a new Android earlier this week, and one with quite the unusual display, at that. Instead of the widescreen aspect ratios we’re used to seeing on the majority of smartphones and tablets, the LG Optimus Vu will instead have a screen with a more traditional 4:3 ratio, like on the iPad. We got to see a promo video for the phone, as well as image of the Vu in the flesh. Today we continue to get a closer look at the handset, with images comparing its form factor against another Android.

In the image above, you can see the Vu on the left with its 4:3 screen, and the Samsung Galaxy Note on the right with its 16:10 display. Things may look a bit more squat on the Vu, but ultimately we’re really not dealing with that big a difference in screen real estate. As we mentioned earlier, this aspect ratio won’t be ideal for watching most full-screen videos, but it ultimately doesn’t seem that unwieldy now. Hopefully, we’ll get to see more of the Vu in operation, as we’re still waiting to see how nicely popular apps end up conforming themselves to this type of display.
