After teasing Optimus Vu II at the IFA trade fair, LG has now officially announced the device in South Korea. It has been priced at 966,900 won ($864), but there is no word on global availability yet.

Under the hood, the Optimus Vu II is powered by a 1.5GHz Qualcomm S4 MSM8960 processor and has 2GB RAM. The smartphone-tablet hybrid will come with a Q Remote app to control home appliances, Q memo, Q translator app that recognises 44 languages with OCR (Optical Character Recognition) through the camera lens, Q slide app for smoother multitasking and an upgraded Rubberdium Pen 2.0 stylus with a thinner tip for more accurate writing.
