LG Optimus G Pro with Galaxy Note 2-sized 1080p display gets official
LG has officially launched the Optimus G Pro, no word on whether it’s coming to the UK just yet though
The LG Optimus G pro officially launched this week and is expected to be making an appearance at Mobile World Congress 2013.
Packing a 5.5-inch 1080p display, the Optimus G Pro - as we’ve previously noted - looks a hell of a lot like Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2, especially when viewed front on.
But unlike the Galaxy Note 2 it features a full HD display constructed from curved glass. Combine the two together and what you get is a 2.5D Full HD viewing experience, according to LG.
LG’s press release doesn’t reveal much about the Optimus G Pro’s specs save for its display setup and choice of processor. Like the Japan-only Optimus G Pro - loaded with a smaller display - this handset will carry Qualcomm’s S4 Pro chipset and, presumably, 2GB of RAM.
It’s also unclear what version of Android the Optimus G Pro will run at launch. Android Jelly Bean (version 4.1.2) is most likely, however.
LG confirmed the Optimus G Pro would be launching in late-February, but neglected to say in which regions. The handset could well be a South Korea-only device. Know Your Mobile has reached out to LG for further comment on regions and availability.
