LG officially pulled back the curtains on its new big-screen smartphone.

Announced on Monday, the LG Vu 3 delivers a 5.2-inch screen outfitted with 1,280x960 pixels and a 4:3 aspect ratio. Driven by a 2.26 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, the 4G LTE phone features a 13-megapixel camera on the rear and a 2.1-megapixel model in front. Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean is also part of the package.

The Vu 3's screen size surpasses the 5-inch display of the Optimus Vu 2 . But the new phone is just 0.2 inches larger than the previous model, according to LG. The phone also comes with a Rubberdium stylus that's as thick and as sturdy as a real pen.

The phone is slated to go on sale in Korea on September 27. An LG spokesperson told CNET that the company currently has no plans to launch the Vu 3 in any other countries.
