LG reveals design of 5.5-inch 1080p Optimus G Pro
Having announced its second generation of budget Optimus L-series trio offerings, LG has now revealed the design of its Optimus G Pro beast, which features a 5.5-inch 1080p resolution display. The LG Optimus G Pro is a successor to the popular Optimus G smartphone, but it has now entered into the Phablet category. It carries the same name as that of the already official Japan-only device, but in reality it is an altogether different beast.
The design looks great by all counts, but not much has been revealed about the Phablet as of now. It has the familiar digital cube pattern on the back, and is using a curved glass in black or white, which LG says produces a “2.5D” effect. The 5.5-inch screen included is a full HD (1080p) resolution display and the Phablet will most probably be powered by a quad-core processor, most likely the Snapdragon S4 Pro.
LG expects the larger G Pro to launch in late February, although it didn’t say whether or not this is limited to South Korea. At this point of time it looks like all roads lead to the Mobile World Congress 2013 taking place in Barcelona, where LG will show off its latest hardware.
