Now we've got news of International version of the Optimus G Pro which looks set to be announced at the Mobile World Congress towards the end of this month. So how does this new version differ from the version already unveiled in Japan ?
The only difference with this new version of the Optimus G Pro is that it comes with a larger 5.5 inch touch-screen , as opposed to the smaller 5 inch display on the Japanese version. Japanese people tend to prefer compact devices and have smaller hands which explains the size difference.
What is the specification of the LG Optimus G Pro ?
The Optimus G Pro has a 5.5 inch IPS-LCD display which runs at a resolution of 1920*1080 pixels (full HD). This automatically makes it a real rival to Samsung's Galaxy Note range , as well as Samsung's Galaxy S3 and Sony's Xperia Z.
The rest of the specification is identical to the Japanese version which is great news because it means it comes with a quad-core 1.7 Ghz Snapdragon processor and has 2GB of RAM. While, the smartphone comes with 32GB of on-board memory which can be expanded by another 64GB using microSD cards.
LG's Optimus G Pro will also support 4G LTE , as well as Three's Ultrafast DC-HSDPA network. While, the smartphone comes with both a 13 mega-pixel snapper and a front-facing 2 mega-pixel camera. Android Jelly Bean comes pre-loaded on the Optimus G Pro , while it has a massive 3,140 mAh battery ensuring it has excellent battery life.
When will the Optimus G be available to buy ?
LG are expected to unveil the LG Optimus G Pro at the Mobile World Congress which beings at the end of this month. The Japanese version of the Optimus G Pro is set to land in April and we see no reason why this version shouldn't land at the same time.
As soon as 3G hear more about the LG Optimus G Pro you'll be the first to know !
