LG Announces 5.5″ Optimus G Pro (Again), Curved Glass And All


Let’s just clear this up right away, LG has already “announced” the Optimus G Pro through their own Facebook page and Korean newswires. Still, LG saw fit to announce the Optimus G Pro again with their keynote event at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. LG says the curved glass hardware, which comes in black and white by the way produces a “2.5D” effect, whatever that means. LG says the Optimus G Pro will sport a full HD 1080p display, 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 13 megapixel rear camera, 3140mAh battery and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean covered in LG’s own unique Android overlay.

The Snapdragon 600 processor is expected to offer better performance than the Snapdragon S4 Pro processor now found in the original Optimus G and Nexus 4. The Optimus G pro is slated for a US release in the second quarter, though no possible carrier references were mentioned.
