The LG Optimus G Pro hasn’t been much of a secret since it was announced for Japan a few weeks ago. Tonight, LG has finally taken the wraps off the device for its homeland of South Korea, unveiling the device unto the world for a likely debut at Mobile World Congress. Pretty much everything here is what we’ve already known of the device: 5.5-inch full HD 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, 3140mAh battery, 1.7GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor and 13MP camera.
But this isn’t simply a rehash of the Japanese version we saw a short time ago. This version not only comes with a larger display (5.5-inches vs Japan’s 5-inch), but aesthetic differences as well. You’ll now notice LG’s now trademark “glitter” pattern along the back of the device ala the Nexus 4/Optimus G, and a curved glass display, giving the phone — what LG is calling — a “2.5D” effect. Sounds a lot like the curved glass on the Nexus 4 which makes us wonder… could a Nexus 5 be in the works from LG? I know, just thinking out loud.
No word on when we can expect this anywhere outside of South Korea, but like the LG Optimus G (sans Pro), expect it in the near future. We more than expect to nab a hands-on of this device during Mobile World Congress 2013 at the tail-end of this month. Full (roughly translated) press release below.
