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?
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.
A week after the 5.5-incher Optimus G Pro's official images were released, LG officially launches their flagship phone in South Korea and news are rife that North America and Japan will be getting the gargantuan smartphone on the second quarter.
Next week, expect Korean fans to line up in stores to get their Optimus G Pro with its quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 2GB memory and 32GB expandable storage. It runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Users will enjoy full HD touchscreen and a 13MP rear camera. It also has a bigger battery to support its capabilities.
Another country that will soon get its hands on the LG Optimus G Pro is Japan. However, another Optimus G Pro has been announced prior and it is possible that LG might rebrand to avoid confusion. For now, we can only wait and see.
LG will showcase the Optimus G Pro at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next week.

Soon, the LG Optimus G Pro will also be featuring innovative technology such as those that are allegedly found on the Samsung S IV like eye recognition and other capabilities.
The Optimus G Pro is one of the leading smartphones in the market today and the company also promises upgrades that will improve the phone's use. Hands-free movie playback and smart scrolling are also very likely to be integrated and is clearly the direction that most smart phones are going.
Perhaps the most important thing that users are waiting for is the ability of a smartphone to perform optimally and consume very little battery life. Unfortunately, no company has come up with an extremely efficient device that has really awesome capabilities.
LG plans to roll out a Value pack upgrade that will allow Optimus G Pro users to use their eyes when playing and pausing videos and QRemote functions that will work well with any LG smart TV.
EYE RECOGNITION TO BRING NEW LEVEL OF ENTERTAINMENT CONVENIENCE TO LG SMARTPHONE Technology to Debut in Smart Video Feature in Optimus G Pro
SEOUL, Mar. 14, 2013 - Smart Video, a new multimedia UX feature from LG Electronics (LG), will be unveiled for the first time in the Optimus G Pro. Smart Video takes viewing videos on mobile devices to a whole new level of convenience with eye recognition that eliminates the need to manually control playback during the viewing experience.
Through the implementation of advanced eye recognition technology, Smart Video recognizes the position of the viewer's eyes and automatically plays or stops the video without any manual input from the user. When the viewer's eyes are no longer focused on the smartphone display, the front camera recognizes this and immediately pauses the video automatically. Once the user's gaze returns to the smartphone, the video resumes playback from the point last viewed.
In addition to the Smart Video feature, Optimus G Pro will also be equipped with the world's first Dual Camera function. The Dual Camera feature is an extension of the Dual Recording feature which debuted on the Optimus G Pro introduced in the Korean market last month. Dual Camera simultaneously captures photographs using both the front and back cameras for a picture-in-picture composition. Users can now be a part of the story, not just observers.
"LG is continuously innovating to offer creative ways to offer a user experience that adds value to our customers," said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Elec-tronics Mobile Communications Company. "It's the positive UX that will differentiate smartphones in 2013 and beyond, not only cutting-edge hardware specs."
The Smart Video and Dual Camera features will be introduced as a part of the Value Pack upgrade which will be offered for the Optimus G Pro in the Korean market next month. These features will also be made available for some LG premium smartphones in the future.
Other features in the Value Pack upgrade include:
• Magic Remote Pad and Text Keypad via the QRemote function. These new options for QRemote work specifically with LG Smart TVs to enhance convenience when using Optimus G Pro as a remote control for LG Smart TVs.
• The Smart LED Lighting outlining the home button of the Optimus G Pro will be upgraded so users can customize the colors to correspond to their favorite contacts. The flashing of the LED in different colors will allow users to identify the source of incoming calls, missed calls, unread messages and emails.
• Video Pause/Resume allows the user to stop and start in record mode for one continuous video file.
• The first Color Emoticons in an Android smartphone for more personalized text messages.
We discovered that Samsung is focusing on a 12.2-inch form of the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition it released with the Galaxy Note 3 in September.

The new Google Nexus 7 tablet , manufactured by Asus, will sure keep everyone on their toes with its expected date of release. According to some reports, it apparently features a full HD display (1920x1080), a big upgrade from the previous tablet's generation. Moreover, the new Nexus 7 is said to collaborate with Qualcomm for its chipset. A quad core Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset looks feasible at this point.
According to Michael McConnel, the move to Qualcomm from Tegra was largely based on competitive cost of the Qualcomm Snapdragon and their "decision to single-source" essential elements to make logistics more streamlined and also to create a matching interface.

It is believed that there are about 6 million users who bought the device and the introduction of the Nexus 7 will surely increase this current figure for this year. It is also possible that the new Nexus 7 will be launched on mid-May and there are also rumors of a new Nexus 10, made by Samsung. However, there are no reports yet to back that information.
