LG Optimus Pro is an interesting terminal, but what’s even more interesting about it is that the Japanese variant has a 5-inch display, while the leaked pictures revealed that the international model will have a 5.5-inch display.
Both LG Optimus G Pro variants come with high-end hardware specifications, and courtesy of a Facebook teaser the South Koreans are now aware that the phablet-ish model will make it on the local market.
I remind you that several leaked pictures revealed that the Japanese LG Optimus G Pro will come with a full HD 5-inch display, quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU at 1.7 GHz, 3,000 mAh battery, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box. The technical specs list also includes 2 GB of RAM, 13 megapixel camera sensor, and 32 GB of internal storage.
Well, a blurred hands on picture of an LG Optimus G Pro leaked last week, confusing us and the public. It revealed a smartphone with a 5.5-inch display, full HD resolution, the same amount of RAM, the same quad-core CPU, and identical technical specs, except for the battery, which was a 3,140 mAh unit.
Now it’s obvious that we are dealing with two different variants of the smartphone that will be sold on different markets.
The same happened with the Japanese HTC J Butterfly and HTC Droid DNA in US, even though we’re dealing with the same smartphone. In comparison with the HTC J Butterfly, Droid DNA doesn’t come with microSD card slot and it’s not water resistant.
What makes the LG Optimus G Pro even more special is that most of the reports are pointing that this will be the device to underpin the next-gen Nexus smartphone, unofficially dubbed Nexus 5.
I’m also curious to see which of the two variants will hit the North American market, but I have a hunch that it will be the 5.5-inch one. Would you like the LG Optimus g Pro to come with 5-inch display or with a slightly bigger 5.5-inch screen? Comment below.
