LG Optimus G Pro launches in Japan on its way to the US

While on its way from LG’s home market of South Korea to North America (and specifically the US), the Optimus G Pro has made a stop over in Japan. Today the Korean phone maker unveiled the Optimus G Pro for NTT DoCoMo, Japan’s largest carrier.

Unlike the G Pro that’s on sale in South Korea (and has already managed to move more than 500,000 units), the version that’s going on sale in Japan sports a smaller, 5-inch touchscreen. Not that it’s small, it’s just smaller in comparison with the 5.5-inch model from Korea. The resolution is still 1080p Full HD, which means that the Japanese variant has an even higher pixel density (440 ppi).

The LG Optimus G Pro for Japan also comes with a 1.7 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, a 13 MP rear camera, a 2.1 MP front camera, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, IR port, mobile TV support, and a 3,000 mAh battery. It runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

Back in February when the Optimus G Pro for South Korea was unveiled, LG said that this device would make it to Japan and the US in the second quarter of this year. And here we are just four days into said quarter, and Japan’s already got its Optimus G Pro. The US should see this handset on June 30 at the latest, if LG keeps its earlier promise.
