LG has gone ahead and introduced its second model of its Optimus Vu Android smartphone, appropriately dubbed the Optimus Vu: II. The device apparently allows you to control major LG electronics, including air conditioners, set-top boxes, televisions and other appliances, using its built-in IR blaster. and QRemote application. The app will support 300 local television stations in South Korea, as well as international stations.
LG didn’t discuss any hardware details for the Optimus Vu II, although we suspect it will have a large screen just like its older brother, which is set to launch on Verizon Wireless in the coming months as the “Intuition.” We’re going to be touching down in Berlin for the IFA trade show, where we expect to see the Optimus Vu II in person, so stay tuned for plenty of additional details.
