LG teases 5 inch Android phone with 4:3 aspect ratio

What Android devices will LG unveil at Mobile World Congress later this month? We are likely to see the Optimus 3D 2, quad-core X3, and now possibly the 5-inch Vu. LG’s Korean blog just posted a teaser video for this super-sized phone, which features the rarely-used 4:3 aspect ratio.

Highlights of the LG Vu include a 5-inch 1024×768 IPS display, Android 2.3, dual-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S3 processor, 1 GB RAM, 8 GB of internal storage, NFC, and an 8 megapixel camera. The only recent Android device to use the 4:3 aspect ration was the Pantech Pocket, which failed pretty miserably on AT&T.

We don’t know if the LG Vu will be available outside of Korea yet, but it’s still worth mentioning to get an idea of future devices that could come to the US. What do you think of this interesting design choice?
