It was bound to happen, it was meant to happen. A great looking smartphone like LG Optimus G Pro cannot be kept locked for a certain region, certainly not if the company is looking to make some profit. Ever since the LG Optimus G Pro was announced for Korea, we had our eyes on it. The smartphone is not only packing some serious heat under the hood but also looks amazing too. The now iconic LG sparkly pattern was instantly identifiable when looking at the press shots, and boy it had made us excited. LG has announced that its latest phablet will be available globally, but after a little time that is. We are completely fine as long as the LG Optimus G Pro sees the western lands.
The LG Optimus G Pro is certainly a phone to look forward to, especially if you are a fan of Galaxy Note 2 sized smartphone. The LG Optimus G Pro will have a 5.5 inch screen with a Full HD resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, that’s not all though, the screen will come at a high pixel density of 400ppi making it among the best displays available in the market. The LG Optimus G Pro will have a 1.7 GHz Snapdragon 600 Quad Core processor as well a 2 GB worth of Ram. The latest Snapdragon will provide a significant boost over the S4 Pro and will ensure that the smartphone runs the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean smoothly. The smartphone will come with 32 Gb of on board storage, with the option of expanding via microSD slot. This is a welcome feature for those who truly want to enjoy content on that Full HD screen.
The LG Optimus G Pro will also have a reasonable 3,140 mAh battery. A 13 MP rear facing camera will as well as a 2 MP front facing snapper will also be present. The smartphone is said to cost 968,000 won which comes around $900, the price however may not reflect the international pricings. The LG Optimus G Pro is said to release in Korea next week while U.S and other regions can expect it in the second quarter. We are expecting the LG Optimus G Pro to make an appearance at MWC being held at Barcelona.
