LG’s stepping up its game with leaked Optimus G Pro, 5-inch, full HD display, LTE and 3000 mAh battery


If you haven’t noticed, 2013 is the year of 5-inch, full HD smartphones, and if you’re a manufacturer that actually wants to make a splash in the market, you will have to bust out the goods. LG’s the latest manufacturer to enter the 5-inch, full HD bandwagon craze if this leaked image from Engadget is any indication. Apparently the Korean company will be making a larger, 5-inch version of their Optimus G in the form of the Optimus G Pro. The Pro version of the Optimus G seems to carry impressive hardware to go up against against the offerings of its rivals – a full HD 5-inch display, 1.7Ghz Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 processor with 2GB RAM, 32GB of storage, LTE capabilities and large 3,000mAh battery.

The Optimus G Pro has a 13-megapixel camera crammed inside with a 2.4-megapixel front facing camera. There’s also Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) on board, unfortunately right now it seems that the Optimus G Pro will only be heading to Japanese markets (for now anyway).
