It’s not the Optimus G2 after all, but it does come with a 5.5-inch touchscreen. It’s the LG Optimus G Pro for South Korea. Not only does it have the main spec difference we told you about compared to the Japan-bound model, but it certainly seems to look exactly like the device in this leak.
So it’s official. LG has made a Galaxy Note II lookalike that has a screen that’s exactly as big. But it’s higher-res. That’s how LG hopes to entice consumers from its home market to give its new phablet a chance. Apparently people really love Samsung designs in South Korea. Or something like that.
LG has managed to officially confirm the screen size on Facebook and on its Social site. The company is promising to slowly reveal more about the Optimus G Pro if more and more people Like its Facebook page, but that’s just your average ‘social media campaign’ at work.
You don’t need to do all of that to get a refresher of the handset’s specs: aside from that Full HD touchscreen, the phone will have a 3,140 mAh battery, and it’s otherwise identical to the version that’s already been announced for Japan. It has a quad-core 1.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 13 MP camera, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of built-in storage, and microSD card support. LTE connectivity is naturally built into the Korean model.
Now the big question remains – will we see something like this in other countries? We’ll probably find out at the end of this month during Mobile World Congress.
