Previously, we reported that Verizon would be bringing over the LG Optimus Vu to the US. However, it’s starting to look like the LG Optimus Vu will be Verizon’s only phablet and will not be picking up the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

Galaxy Note 2 alternative LG Intuition

Droid Life has picked up a leaked document that reveals the LG Optimus Vu will be marketed as LG Intuition when Verizon announces it in the coming weeks. The document places a spotlight on the following features:

  • 5-inch display features vibrant colors
  • Large enough to easily read, surf the web
  • Capture, comment, share with QuickMemo

The document also reveals that the LG Optimus Vu/Intuition will be available for $199.99 with a 2 year contract or $549 without one.

The LG Optimus Vu/Intuition comes with a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB RAM and 32 GB internal memory for all your files and media.It will also be running on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box. As for the camera, the device will also come with an 8MP shooter that should be enough for your Instagram, Tumblr and Facebook needs.

Is the LG Intuition an acceptable alternative to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2? Will you be disappointed if Verizon decides that this will be the only phablet they’ll carry? Speak your mind in the comments below!

    But wait, Samsung can’t sell the Note 2 because its obviously a copycat of the IPhone.

    lg intuition is not a good phone when it comes to spec……we prefered to have a samsung galaxy note 2 for verizon.

    Most definitely disappointed. Was strongly considering the G-Note 2 due to the rumored huge screen size. At 5″ for this LG, I see very little upside to changing from my 4.6″ G-Nexus.

    Are you kidding me? The LG phone is a pile of garbage next to the Samsung Galaxy 2. Verizon must think their customers are idiots if they think this half baked phone with a stylus that can’t be stored inside the phone is something their high-end customers would want. I hope this LG POS is not presented as an alternative to the Galaxy Note 2.

    Check the specs line by line. The VU is hardly a half Note.

    The Note is not mentioned in the litigation against Samsung, nor has it been banned…at least not yet.

    LG is not a good device period I had the the LG Lucid device and it had to be replaced more that 3 times so I would not recommend this new Device with LG. I have a Samsung Galaxy S 3 and its a great product by Samsung.
