Who remembers the ergonomical disaster called LG Optimus Vu? You do? Well, it won’t be long before you forget that ugly phablet, thanks to LG, who has just announced a much better looking LG Optimus G Pro.
Sporting a 5.5″ Full HD (1080p) IPS Display, LG Optimus G Pro has derived a lot of inspiration from Google’s Nexus 4, specially the glitter pattern on the glass back. Rest of the drool-worthy specs include 2GB RAM, 1.7GHZ quad core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 32GB of in-built memory, 3140mAh battery and a 13 MegaPixel camera.
We were hugely impressed with LG Optimus G, and Optimus G Pro takes it a notch further. Unlike the disastrous 4:3 screen on Optimus Vu, Optimus G Pro looks a lot similar to Galaxy Note 2 from the outset. However, we need to wait and see if LG can better (or at least match) the software on Galaxy Note 2. There is no mention about a stylus as well in the press release.
For now, Optimus G Pro will be made available in South Korea. No word when it’ll be available in US, Europe and other parts of Asia. But we expect to get a hands-on during the Mobile World Congress 2013 at Barcelona later this month. Stay tuned!
