LG confirms G Pro 2 name and launch next month, probably at MWC
As we’re getting closer and closer to the LG Optimus G Pro‘s one year launch anniversary, we’re hearing more and more about its successor. A few days ago we told you that it will be called G Pro 2 (sans Optimus branding this time, following in the footsteps of the smaller G2 from last year), and that it will be unveiled during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February.
And today LG decided to confirm the upcoming handset’s name – it will in fact be called G Pro 2. The Korean company also told us that it will announce the phablet in February, without giving any more details. Still, since MWC is basically the most important mobile-related event next month, it would make perfect sense for LG to do the unveiling there.
LG expects the G Pro 2 to be a success in terms of sales. The Optimus G Pro from last year managed to cross the 1 million sold mark in South Korea, as did the G2 and the Optimus G.
Previously leaked information talked about the G Pro 2 coming with either a 5.9-inch 2,560×1,440 touchscreen or a 6-inch 1080p Full HD panel, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 3 GB of RAM, support for LTE-A, and it should run Android 4.4 KitKat from day one.
