LG and Verizon have teamed up to announce the U.S variant of the LG Optimus Vu, the LG Intuition. The Galaxy Note competitor from LG sports a 5-inch True HD IPS display with 720p resolution with excellent viewing angles and color reproduction.
Other specs of the LG Intuition include a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, Adreno 220 GPU, 1GB of RAM, an 8MP camera with an LED flash at the back, a 1.3MP camera in the front, Bluetooth 3.0 + HS, Wi-Fi b/g/n, NFC and GPS with A-GPS. LG will also be bundling two NFC tags, which can be re-programmed using the pre-installed LG Tag+ app.
The handset-cum-tablet hybrid will run on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box with LG’s own custom skin on top of it. LG have added some useful features with their skin including the ability to click a picture via voice commands, a Notebook app that will allow users to take virtual notes on the Intuition, and a suite of Amazon apps.
The LG Intuition will be available from September 6th on all Verizon stores and website for $199.99 on a two-year contract. Buyers who order the phablet between Sept. 6 to 10th will also receive a free LG Tone Stereo Bluetooth headset.
