We first heard about a device named the LG G Pro 2 around a week ago, when it appeared in a rumour report about the LG G3, but there was little information concerning the unofficial device. Now, the phone has been made vaguely official, although it’s in name alone.
A posting on LG’s Korean blog says the LG G Pro 2 will be coming next month, and that it’ll be a range-topping flagship device. The original G Pro is still available, and comes with a 5.5-inch, 1080p touchscreen, while it’s powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor and 2GB of RAM. The big device also has a 13-megapixel camera.
So how does LG follow the G Pro, and it’s slight update, the Gx? According to previous rumours, the G Pro 2 could get a larger 5.9-inch screen, making it bigger than its obvious target, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. The resolution is a mystery though, and while 1080p would still be perfectly acceptable, there’s a chance it’ll come with LG’s first 1440p screen.
LG Display has talked about what it calls a Quad HD screen in the past. It’s viewed as the next level in smartphone screen resolutions, and there’s no doubt the 2560×1440 pixel resolution sounds very exciting. LG is also expected to put one of its Quad HD displays on the G3 smartphone, while Samsung may do the same with the Galaxy S5.
LG’s reference to an announcement next month indicates the G Pro 2 will be one of its big reveals at Mobile World Congress, which opens its doors on 24 February.
