LG today announced that it will unveil the G Pro 2 at a press event in February, and the Korean manufacturer is surely hoping that its next large phone will add to the momentum of devices released in recent months. LG also chose today to reveal its earnings report for the fourth quarter of 2013, a three-month period that saw the company sell more than 13 million smartphones.
Powered by its its own high-end LG G2 and the Google Nexus 5 partnership, LG managed to ship 13.2 million smartphones in Q4, up from the 8.6 million shipped during the same period in 2012. LG didn't gain much money because of "higher marketing investments to strengthen LG's brand equity and intensified price competition," but the increase in marketing sparked higher sales and attained new customers during a very competitive period.
The LG G Pro 2 will be among the phones that kickstart LG's efforts in 2014. LG has confirmed that the phone will be announced at an unnamed event in February. No further details have been shared at this time. A follow-up to last year's G Pro, the G Pro 2 is expected to have a 6-inch 1080p HD display and other common specs, like a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and the many software features seen in the G2, when it is unveiled.source: LG
