The first details of LG's next generation of Vu smartphone have started to bubble up, pointing to a possible September release.

The specs, leaked by Korean tech blog Asiae (translate) tell of the same, unconventional 4:3 aspect ratio found in the first two models in the Optimus Vu line. Hardware is reported to include a 5.2-inch 1280x960 pixel display, 13-megapixel rear camera, and support for ultra-fast 150Mbps LTE-A data networks.

Presumably running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean or later, the LG Vu is expected to launch in South Korea before the end of September. Should this report prove accurate, we might see LG make a related announcement at the IFA show in Berlin in a few weeks.
