As you can clearly see in the image above, the phone outlined on the left is exactly the phone pictured on the right, which means that the LG VS950 is indeed the LG Optimus VU — or a variant of some sort. On this exact same note we can draw the conclusion that the LG VS950, aka LG Optimus VU, is heading to Verizon, at least according to FCC.
There’s no mention of the “Optimus VU” moniker though, but the filing reveals that the VS950 is packing NFC and LTE band 13 plus GSM 850/1900MHz compatibility. LG introduced its 4:3 aspect ratio phablet with the occasion of this year’s MWC and the device packs a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, five-inch IPS screen with XGA resolution (768 x 1024 pixels), 1GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, eight-megapixel main shooter, 1.3-megapixel webcam, 2,080mAh battery and Android 2.3 Gingerbread. However, it will get its official Ice Cream Sandwich treat pretty soon, just in time for its Verizon availability? As a reminder, you can check out our MWC hands-on video here.
