While a score of big red Verizon customer sit and wait patiently for the availability of the super large Galaxy note, the LG-VS950 has passed through the FCC’s door ways to smash that Sammy dream into pieces. The LG-VS950 has made its way through the governmental gate keeper on June 28th and was filed as being tested on Verizon’s LTE bandwidths. Additionally, the 4G LTE branding on the rear side of the device is most obviously in the font of Verizon. While the details of this FCC filing could prove to not be an Optimus VU, the size, square shape and location of the speakers pretty much confirms it is indeed an Optimus VU.

Internally it rocks a 1.5 GHz dual core processor that is backed by 32 GB of internal memory.
