The LG Optimus G Pro received its true confirmation in the form of publishing details related to this new high-end model from the South Korean manufacturer after a successful “tizing” on the net. The new LG smartphone will carry a 5.5-inch screen with support for an ultra-fast LTE network, as befits a smartphone from the premium segment. Along with this kind of phone, that is, it also comes with a fast processor, which in this case has a clock speed of 1.7 GHz.
The LG Optimus G Pro will have its premiere in Korea
As LG has accustomed us to first introduce its new phones in South Korea, there is no reason for the LG Optimus G Pro to be an exception. This is not a disadvantage because the arrival on the markets of North America, Europe, and Japan is expected very soon. The first examples of LG Optimus G Pro smartphones could take their place on the shelves in a few months, ie in the second quarter of the year, when LG is expected to present three more budget smartphones, such as Optimus L7 II, Optimus L5 II, and Optimus L3 II.
The LG Optimus G Pro has a huge 5.5-inch AMOLED screen
Let’s get back to the phone. The LG Optimus G Pro is an Android device with a large display, similar to those that come to us from the kitchens of HTC and Samsung. This should come as no surprise as phone makers on the Android OS have long sought to beat the iPhone in terms of screen diagonal, so screens are growing in width and length like mushrooms after rain. The LG Optimus G Pro has a 5.5-inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels with a pretty serious pixel density. It has as many as 400 per inch.
It is well known that large screens consume a lot of energy, so LG did not take any risks when it comes to battery life. The Koreans have equipped the LG Optimus G Pro with a battery capacity of an impressive 3,140 mAh, which, according to the boast from LG itself, would mean “watching HD video for hours”. Where the screen is large, the dimensions cannot be modest either, so the LG Optimus G Pro measures 150.2 × 76.1 × 9.4mm.
LG Optimus G Pro design
Beneath the case, which deviates slightly from LG’s “sharp-edged” philosophy and takes the shape of, say, Samsung’s stars, is the aforementioned quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor at 1.7 GHz and 2 GB of RAM. Due to its thickness of 9.4 mm, many compare this device with the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, which was probably LG’s intention.
LG Optimus G Pro – a powerful 13 MP camera
Multimedia support is, it would be said, at the appropriate level, because there is a 13 MP main camera on the back of the phone, which can be said to fit into the current standards of such phones. Auxiliary also has a notable resolution of 2.1 MP. Interestingly, the built-in option called Virtual Reality Panorama will provide a 360-degree panorama, ie it will allow video calls to be made without any problems, regardless of the position in which the user is in relation to the phone itself. At the same time, both cameras will be able to simultaneously record the material, so the user will have the privilege to get a unique “picture in picture” pleasure.
