LG G Pro 2 purportedly shown in leaked pictures, has buttons on the back like the G2
LG will launch the G Pro 2 next month as the successor to the Optimus G Pro phablet. This much has been confirmed by the Korean company itself yesterday. So far we’ve heard a couple of rounds of rumored specs for the device, but we haven’t actually seen any leaked pictures showing it yet.
That changes today, when two images purportedly depicting the G Pro 2 have made their way onto the Internet. They show that LG isn’t giving up on the back-mounted buttons thing it first did for the G2 – here too the power button is flanked by the volume buttons on the back of the handset, right below the camera. This design is very similar to that employed in the G2, though obviously the G Pro 2 is bigger.
How much bigger exactly is still a mystery, but probably around 5.9 to 6 inches in screen size, diagonally. Its resolution will be either ‘plain old’ 1080p Full HD or the new and exciting 2,560×1,440 that’s getting traction this year, slowly but surely.
Other previously rumored specs for the LG G Pro 2 include a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 3 GB of RAM, support for LTE-A networks, and it should run Android 4.4 KitKat from the moment it launches. Speaking of that, the official unveiling will probably happen during MWC at the end of February. Until then though, we expect to see many more leaks about this phablet, so stay tuned.
