LG Optimus G Pro Revealed: Japan Launch Set For April
Well, Samsung and Apple can't be the only companies worried about leaks anymore. The Optimus G was only released a few months ago but word has gotten out that LG is already getting ready to unleash its successor this coming April in Japan.
Japanese phone carrier NTT DoCoMo revealed the Optimus G Pro on Tuesday when it issued a PDF, describing its upcoming smartphone line-up. Sure enough, sitting pretty on the page was LG's next big bet in the smartphone wars. The revelation is especially surprising because most rumors suggested that the phone wouldn't be officially announced until next month's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
Not only did DoCoMo mention an April launch for the phone, but it also revealed some impressive specs. The handset will come stocked with a 5-inch display packing a 1920x1080p resolution, cementing LG's commitment to battling Samsung's Galaxy Note line-up in the increasingly popular "phablet" market.
Internally, the Optimus G Pro will sport Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, Qualcomm's 1.7Ghz quad-core Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage. If that's not enough for some reason, the ability is there for a microSD expansion to add up to 64GB of additional memory.
Rounding out the specs are are 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2.4-megapixel one on the front, a 4G LTE connection, and a 3,000 mAh battery.
There's no word yet on a release outside of Japan, but, then again, there's no official word from LG that this phone even exists! The South Korean company did report recently that it intends to sell 45 million smartphones in 2013, though, and it's hard to imagine them pulling in a number like that without a Stateside release. Consider that Google's Nexus 4 (which is based on the Optimus G) has received great reviews, and that the Optimus G was sold in the U.S., it's very likely we'll be seeing the Optimus G Pro phone arrive stateside at some point during the year.
DoCoMo made no mention of pricing in its PDF, so at least LG can look forward to announcing that next month.
