Earlier today, LG officially announces its 5.5-incher Korean version of the Optimus G Pro. It has also mentioned its plans of a newer version. Judging from the official photos, this new device looks sturdy and intriguing, and it also features a single home button at the bottom. It has a resolution of 1080 x 1920 and is built with a curved glass for a 2.5D effect that is according to LG. Design-wise, it kind of reminds us of Samsung Galaxy Note II but with that characteristically curved display and the patterned back, much like its Optimus G predecessor.
There is not much report on the specs as of yet but based on some LG hints, it looks to be a quad core, HD device. It might be introduced in Korea later this month and we might actually be able to experience it this coming Mobile World Congress (MWC) two weeks from now.
LG unveils the entire image of the LG Optimus G Pro and South Korea is said to get a bigger and better version of the said device. It will feature a 5.5" display with a 1.7 GHz Quad Core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 2 GB memory and a 32GB, expandable storage via microSD. It also boasts of a 13MP camera, wherein photos and videos can be viewed on Full HD resolution.
Bigger specs means bigger battery consumption and the LG Optimus G Pro might still fare well in this department because of its 3140 mAH battery. The huge screen will definitely make use of precious battery life, so you do have to consider this when buying. The South Korean version is only a little different from its smaller brother that was launched in Japan. The only difference is the slightly larger display. Fans will surely be divided on what to go with: The Korean or the Japanese version?
