LG has already confirmed we’ll be seeing the G Pro 2 smartphone/tablet hybrid next month, and now a leak has given us a look at the device itself. There are two pictures, one of which shows the phone from the side, and isn’t all that interesting. The second is considerably more exciting.
We’ll leave the side view, as all it shows is the phone has a similar look to the first G Pro, and concentrate on the back view. The picture shows LG is planning to introduce the same rear-mounted controls first seen on the G2 smartphone.
Shifting the buttons from the side to the back on the G2 proved to be a hit for LG, and made its flagship phone really standout. Doing the same on the even larger G Pro 2 is a great idea, and should help make the device easier to use with one hand. In case you’ve not used the G2, those back buttons adjust the volume and sleep or wake the screen.
According to previous rumours, the G Pro 2′s screen will measure 6-inches and potentially have a 1440p screen, but opinion is split on whether it’ll come with a 1080p resolution display instead. Other features include a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM, and Android KitKat as the operating system.
While LG has said it’s headed our way in February, it hasn’t provided an exact date, which could mean it’ll be revealed during Mobile World Congress on 24 February.
