Verizon Galaxy Note 2 Competitor Revealed

It’s unclear if Verizon will be getting the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, Samsung’s upcoming next-generation phablet, but at the very least it will be getting a competitor called the LG Intuition, otherwise known as the LG Optimus Vu, which has seen new details revealed today.

Droid-Life has unearthed a leaked document that not only confirms the name of Verizon’s variant of the LG Optimus Vu, but also its price and some of its features.

The document reveals that the device will be called the LG Intuition here in the United States and it will be coming with a $199.99 price tag after a new two-year agreement.

The LG Intuition will cost $549 off-contract.

The LG Intuition will compete against the Galaxy Note 2.

And while an exact release date is unknown, we know that it will be arriving sometime in this quarter thanks to LG. That means that it will be doing battle with the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 sooner or later, a device that has yet to reveal itself.

It’s unclear if the LG Intuition, with its 5-inch display, will compete against the Galaxy Note 2 on Verizon itself or if it will compete Verizon’s answer to the Galaxy Note 2 on other carriers.

Samsung is poised to announce the Galaxy Note 2 on August 29th and we may see Verizon confirm or remain silent about its plans for the device.

Besides the massive 5-inch display, the LG Intuition sports a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, the same processor in the U.S. versions of the HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S III. It also has 1GB of RAM, a rear-facing 8MP camera, and 32GB of internal storage space.

It also, like the Galaxy Note, takes advantage of a pen stylus for direct input on the display.

We imagine LG and Verizon will fill us in on the rest of the details in the near future now that the device is out in the open. Just when though, remains a mystery at this point.
