LG Optimus G Pro curves mimics Galaxy Note 2


LG is looking to be more of a major force in the smartphone world during 2013, and already we have seen numerous leaks of new handsets from the company. Now the LG Optimus G Pro has been made official and its curved design mimics the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

The handset was recently revealed in Japan but the company has now revealed the version that will be seen in the rest of the world, and is expected to make its debut at this month’s Mobile World Congress. The company has basically confirmed what we have recently learnt, and the big difference over the Japanese model is the larger 5.5-inch Full HD 1080p touchscreen display.

Under the hood is the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad core processor clocked at an impressive 1.7GHz, which is paired with 2GB of RAM. There is also a 13 megapixel rear facing camera with a 2.1 megapixel unit on the front, with both cameras capable of Full HD video capture.

The handset is not just a stretched version of the Japanese model as there is the glitter like pattern on the back that is similar to the Nexus 4, and the curved display provides the handset with what LG are calling a 2.5D effect.

It is down to be released by the end of the month in the company’s home country of South Korea, and hopefully at MWC 2013 we will get more details about the LG Optimus G Pro’s availability elsewhere in the world along with that all important pricing.

Do you like the look of the LG Optimus G Pro?

    Honestly this thing is beautiful.. the Note 2 was a nice phone, but I find personally I like the feel of LGs phones better, and I like their IPS displays more than the AMOLEDs..
    Samsung had always made the superior overall phone experience though. Until the Optimus G & Nexus 4. They might be LGs best hardware design to date, and coupled with compelling software as well.. Im just intruiged to see if LG can keep improving at the rate it has recently in terms of hardware and especially software. This device looks like a premium piece of kit.. very nice. IMO LG will explode this year and be the fastest growing mobile company. They have reached the quality of Samsung and Apple (and surpassed them arguably) so its just a matter of time before their sales and devices really start to pick up steam. Unless they had a one hit wonder in the Optimus G, but I dont think that is the case.
