LG Optimus G has a burgundy version

Until now, LG has showcased its Optimus G smartphone in three color versions: black, white, and red.

Introduced in South Korea in the first quarter of the year, and announced for other markets last month, the LG Optimus Vu is certainly not your everyday smartphone. That’s because its 5-inch, 4:3 ratio display makes it a bit uncomfortable to hold. And although most reviewers (including those talking about Verizon’s version, called Intuition) criticized LG for the handset’s design, the South Korean company is getting ready to launch a new Optimus Vu with similar physical characteristics.
