Look out Samsung Galaxy fans! LG has been reported to be working on an updated version of their Optimus G that will be similar to and rival the Samsung Galaxy Note II. The LG corporation also confirmed this week that their Optimus G Pro will be launched in North America sometime during the second quarter of 2013.
As phone screens get larger and more pristine, LG is responding to the demand for a more high-quality, high-resolution display. The LG Optimus G Pro will sport a huge 5.5-inch IPS display with a sparkling 1080p resolution. The fully HD display touts 400 PPI and more brightness that will be countered with a design that consumes less power, giving the battery a longer life.
The LG Optimus G Pro comes with an incredible 1.7 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 Processor that is blazing fast. It also sports 2GB of RAM and 32GB of memory (which can be upgraded via the microSD slot).
The Optimus G Pro runs a custom blend of Android 4.1 and LG’s Optimus UX and comes standard with LG’s unique interface and additional applications. These include exceptionally better camera software that tracks moving photo subjects and takes fully automatic panoramic photos. LG includes quality camera hardware, such as a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera and a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera.
Although there is no pricing information available yet, we do know that LG will be launching the Optimus G Pro in Korea first, followed by Japan and North America in the second quarter of 2013.
