When LG announced the Optimus G Pro last year, people called it a Galaxy Note 3 without an S Pen. Though we expected the company to announce a follow-up later this month at MWC, LG decided to kick things off early and announce the G Pro 2 ahead of schedule. Some people might still call it a Galaxy Note 3 competitor in terms of size and power, but the phone is more aptly described as a bigger and more powerful G2.
The G Pro 2 uses the now LG standard rear button placement for volume and power. Just above those buttons is a 13-megapixel camera with Optical Image Stabilization and the ability to record 4K Ultra HD video. The front of the phone has a 2-megapixel camera and a 5.9-inch 1080p HD display. The G Pro 2 also houses a 2.26 GHz quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM, 16 or 32GB of internal storage and a microSD slot, and a 3,200 mAh battery.
LG has yet to decide when, where, and how the phone will be released outside of South Korea. Pricing information is also unavailable at the moment. Below are the confirmed LG G Pro 2 specs.
