LG Optimus G Pro Gets Official, Boasts 5.5-inch Full HD Display and Android Jelly Bean

LG Optimus G Pro 01

The LG Optimus G Pro is one of the smartphones that is making the headlines over the past couple of weeks, next to Samsung Galaxy S4, and HTC M7. The three Asian phone makers are one of the biggest players on the Android smartphone market and since LG Optimus G Pro will become the flagship smartphone of one of them, it attracted the public’s attention.

The South Korea-based company was expected to announce the LG Optimus G Pro later this month at Mobile World Congress 2013 event in Barcelona, but the Asian phone maker has just released a press material officially revealing the terminal’s tech specs.

What’s even more interesting is that the Japanese variant of the LG Optimus Pro comes with a 5-inch full HD display, compared to the model that was revealed now, which packs a 5.5-inch full HD display, placing the terminal in the phablet segment.

The press release didn’t unveil more details about the LG Optimus Pro, except for the fact that it has a 5.5-inch curved display, which, according to LG will offer 2.5D effects.

The LG Optimus G Pro is expected to arrive with a quad-core processor manufactured by Qualcomm, the Snapdragon S4 Pro unit clocked at 1.7 GH. The new flagship smartphone will also come with 2 GB of RAM, 13 megapixel camera and all the connectivity standards worthy of a high end smartphone, like WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC, and LTE.

The back of the new LG Optimus G Pro reminds of the glass back panel of the Nexus 4, the smartphone co-developed by Google and LG.

For the time being there are no official details about the availability or the price of the LG Optimus G Pro.

The LG Optimus G Pro has caught our attention especially because the rumors are pointing that Google and LG will team-up once again to develop Nexus 5, most likely based on the current flagship smartphone of the South Korean company.

We are curious to see which variant will hit the North American market, but we will probably find out more at MWC 2013, on February 25th. Which variant do you like more? The 5-inch one or the 5.5-inch phablet? Please let us know in the comments section.
