Details of the LG Vu III first started appearing back in late-July. At that time we were seeing some basic specs, however that was followed up with a second leak a month later that provided a bit more in terms of detail. Moving back up to the present day and we are now seeing some additional chatter in terms of the specs along with word of the handset possibly being announced later this month.
First off, to recap what we have seen in terms of the specs. These look to include a 5.2-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 960. And yes, that means the Vu III will be keeping the same 4:3 aspect ratio from the earlier models. Otherwise, the handset is also expected to have a 13 megapixel rear-facing camera and Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor.
We aren’t entirely sure how many users are waiting for the Vu III to arrive, but we have seen reports suggesting LG will be announcing the device later in September with a release set for October. The details are coming by way of the Korean language etnews and based on the timeline — it looks like LG wants to get this device out in time to compete with the Galaxy Note 3.
Anyway, while we have seen the LG Vu come to the US as the Intuition with Verizon Wireless, it is looking like this September announcement and October release is for the Korean market. In fact, further details coming from the report mention three specific models for the handset — the F300k, F300l and F300s, which would be for KT Telecom, LGU+ Telecom and SK Telecom. Needless to say, a global release with US availability could follow soon after.
