We suspect the image they've got on the slide here is a placeholder derived from the Arena
, but the point is well taken: LG will be drawing heavily from its high-end global feature phone when the time comes to sunset the Vu
. Indeed, we've heard that there'll be some S-Class-ish interface on the Vu 2
, so this lines up nicely -- as does the 5 megapixel camera, 7.2Mbps HSDPA, 3-inch wide VGA display, and MediaFLO
support. Those are some heavy-duty specs, so we're hoping beyond hope that these guys can hold to the August '09 timeframe they've seemingly targeted for this. Catch a slightly larger glimpse of the phone -- which, the more we look at it, we're pretty sure is just an Arena stock photo -- after the break.
