LG Optimus G Pro globally announced
We knew this was going to happen eventually, LG is not stupid to keep a beautiful looking smartphone like LG Optimus G Pro away from the international markets. Ever since the LG Optimus G Pro was announced for Korea, we have been waiting for some kind of announcement telling us that the 5.5 inch phablet will come to our land too. To be honest the Galaxy Note 2 has spoiled us and has raised our expectations when it comes to smartphone with abnormally large sizes. LG is aiming to challenge that with its latest LG Optimus G Pro, and so far it has us intrigued. The LG Optimus G Pro is looking like a beast of a smartphone, the screen measures at 5.5 inches and comes with full HD 1080 x 1920 resolution. That’s not all the large screen has impossibly thin bezels making it look all the more huge, and has a pixel density of 400ppi. This will be something to look forward to as the screen is already mouthwatering. The LG Optimus G Pro will be running a 1.7 GHz quad core Snapdragon 600 processor, which will be significantly faster than the old Snapdragon S4 Pro ones. 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage will be enough for many, but there is blissfully an microSD card slot for further expansions. The inclusion of a SD card slot is really important in any device, more so if the said device has a Full HD resolution. The LG Optimus G Pro will pack a hefty 3,140 mAh battery which will be more than enough for a day’s worth of dilly dallying. The smartphone will feature a 13 MP rear facing as well as a 2 MP front facing snapper. It will be running Android version 4.1.2 along with usual LG UX customizations. The press release states that the LG Optimus G Pro will be available next week in Korea and will come costing 968,000 won which is around $900. LG states that LG Optimus G Pro will begin rolling out in overseas territories which includes U.S. during the second quarter. We are hoping to catch it at MWC though.
