We reported earlier about LG teasing the Optimus Vu, a 5″ beast probably being unveiled at MWC next month. One of this phablet’s selling points apparently is its screen’s 4:3 aspect ratio at a 1024 x 768 resolution. The idea is that the device is wider in portrait mode than a more common 16:9 widescreen device, making it better for reading books or viewing pictures in portrait orientation.
Here’s a shot of the LG Optimus Vu next to the Samsung Galaxy Note, a 5.3″ widescreen phone, which looks quite slim next to the Vu’s chunky profile.
The phablet space (ok, I know “phablet” is weird…let’s say tabletphone) is still being defined, and who’s to say what aspect ratio will dominate? Personally, I think this looks too wide to be comfortable to use one-handed, whereas the Galaxy Note looks much easier to grasp.
What do you think? Does the future of phones look like the past of TV’s?
