With the Mobile World Congress trade show set to take place later this month in Barcelona, we might be getting our first look at what LG has planned with a new device called “Optimus Vu” teased in new advertisements (via BGR). We already know much about the device: 5-inch display (4:3 aspect ratio), a 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel camera, and a 8GB of onboard storage. Rumors indicate that the LG Optimus Vu will run Android 2.3 Gingerbread, as opposed to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It is likely we will learn more about the device during MWC from Feb. 27 to March 1.
