Same phablet, with minor hardware upgrades (hands-on)
LAS VEGAS--Though it was released in South Korea this past September, the Optimus Vu II, LG's updated phablet device, cropped up at LG's booth during CES 2013.
Compared with its predecessor, a few of the specs have stayed the same: it still has the same gigantic 5-inch IPS LCD touch screen, the 8-megapixel camera (with the 1.3-megapixel camera up front), and the 1.5GHz dual-core processor.
What's different, however, is that it's thinner, its RAM has been bumped up from 1GB to 2GB, its onboard memory increased from 32GB to 64GB, and it now comes with a microSD card slot.
