LG Optimus G Pro leaks with 5-inch 1080p display


LG’s update to their Optimus G handset released last fall looks primed for release in Japan, according to a series of leaks. Dubbed the Optimus G Pro, the device features several improvements over the original including a 5-inch 1080p display. Other specs listed are a 1.7GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro, 13MP camera, and 3000mAh battery. It will launch with Android 4.1.

The leak in question pegs the Optimus G Pro for a launch on NTT DoCoMo in two color options, Platinum White and Indigo Black. Given the phone’s overall design, the G Pro comes across as more of a iterative update rather than a true sequel.

The specs don’t quite jive with rumors we have heard related to an Optimus G2. Sources have said that phone would feature a 5.5-inch display and could launch next fall running Android’s unannounced Key Lime Pie version out of the box. It could be that LG is taking a Samsung-esque approach with their G series.

Just like the Galaxy S often receives several variants (mini, plus, etc.) before the next flagship model is introduced, we could see the same from LG with the Optimus G. You can already count the Nexus 4 in there, if you’d like. Unless DoCoMo releases this independently, the Optimus G Pro looks like another candidate for a Mobile World Congress debut.
