5.5″ LG Optimus G Pro for South Korea smiles for the camera, comes with bigger battery too

Remember that image depicting the upper half of the front of the LG Optimus G Pro from yesterday? You do? Good. Because now we can see the entire front fascia of said device.

This, however, isn’t the phone that was announced for Japan not long ago. Instead, it’s the Korean version, which may hit international waters as well. And, interestingly, it’s a little bit different from the 5-inch 1080p beast that was unleashed upon Japan.


First of all, its screen has apparently grown all the way up to 5.5 inches, while keeping the Full HD resolution. The battery has become bigger too, now coming in at 3,140 mAh, which is certainly decent (but do consider that the huge pixel-packed screen will love depleting it anyway).

Otherwise, this slightly enlarged G Pro seems to be identical to its 5-inch smaller brother. It has the quad-core 1.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 13 MP camera, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of built-in storage, and microSD card support. The 5.5-incher will get LTE connectivity as well.

The device pictured above is purportedly the model for the LG U+ carrier in South Korea.

The question that remains is – which Optimus G Pro will be sold in Europe and North America? The Japanese variant or the Korean one? Or neither?

To find out more about that, stay tuned. If this phone will make it outside of Asia, it will surely be unveiled during Mobile World Congress at the end of this month.
