The rumors regarding the launch of LG Optimus G2 have started to hit the web soon after the LG Optimus G was made officially available, therefore you shouldn’t be surprised hearing that the South Korea-based phone maker is preparing a successor for its flagship device.
Even so, today we are talking about a terminal that is named LG Optimus G Pro, a smartphone that accidentally leaked on the web as a picture. But is it the highly-anticipated Optimus G2 or a different model?
The guys at Engaget were the ones who got their hands on the leaked picture, quoting an anonymous source as the provider of the picture.
The alleged LG Optimus G Pro brings some interesting upgrades compared to its predecessor, the twin brother of the more popular Google Nexus 4. It seems that LG Optimus G Pro boasts a 5-inch display with full HD resolution, outmatching the 768p 4.7-inch touch panel fitted on the first Optimus G. The clock speed of the processors was also increased, from 1.5 GHz on the Optimus G, to 1.7 GHz on Optimus G Pro, the chipset being the same powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 unit.
The other technical specifications revealed by the leaked picture include 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, plus 4G LTE connectivity and a 3,000 mAh battery.
Rumor has it that the LG Optimus G Pro weighs in 160 grams, being 1.1 mm thick. Least, but not last, on the back of the new LG smartphone there’s a 13 megapixel camera, and the smartphone is running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box.
We will most likely see the LG Optimus G Pro in flash at Mobile World Congress 2012 event in Barcelona, where it will be demoed to the public, as well.
