5.5-Inch 1080p LG Optimus G Pro Challenges Galaxy Note 2 in Korea

LG Optimus G Pro
When LG first announced that it would follow the LG Optimus G with the LG Optimus G Pro, many of us assumed that it was going to have a much larger screen in order to compete against the Samsung Galaxy Note series. It did get bigger, bumping from 4.7-inches to 5.0-inches, but that apparently still wasn’t big enough. Now, we’re catching a glimpse of another LG Optimus G Pro smartphone, this time with a 5.5-inch screen.

While the 5-inch LG Optimus G Pro looks like it’s an exclusive to NTT DoCoMo in Japan for the time being, the phablet sized 5.5-inch Optimus G Pro is apparently heading to LG’s home country of South Korea. That 5.5-inch display retains the 1080p resolution of its slightly smaller cousin, along with a 1.7GHz Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm and 2GB of RAM.

To help power the bigger screen, they’re also giving it a bigger battery, a 3140mAh unit to be precise. That’s right around the same size as the Note 2, which makes sense since they have the same sized display (though the Note 2 is only 720p). Rounding out the spec sheet are 32GB of internal storage and a microSD slot for even more space.

This is just a leak at the moment, so we haven’t found anything in terms of pricing and availability just yet, but I’d say it’s pretty safe to assume that some variant of the Optimus G Pro will eventually make it to our shores. We just don’t know if it’s a 5-incher, a 5.5-incher, or something different altogether.

    Putting an LG display on a note sized device. Now thats a win/win situation. The screen on the optimus G blew the S3 out of the water. Plus they might be sneaking it in before the s4, meaning this might be a steal of a deal!
