The earliest and most tangible indications that LG would be releasing a successor to the LG G Pro were in the form of live pictures of the device that surfaced early last month. Since then,, we have heard and come across all kinds of rumors and speculation but today, we can comfortably say that LG will be launching the device on February 13th as earlier predicted here.
The LG G Pro 2 looks and feels almost exactly as its predecessor the S2, except that it comes with a larger 6 inch screen. Today, benchmark test results of a device purported to be 2 different variants of the LG G Pro 2 surfaced, further revealing the specs and features of the devices. Just 3 days away from official launch, the two devices, F350L/F350K (for the Korean market) and the D837 (international version) were passed through the test to check their performance and they revealed the specs of the two devices.
The LG G Pro 2 does not disappoint when it comes to specs. It will come with a 2.26 GHz quad-core Krait 400 Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon 800 processor with an Adreno 330 GPU, a 6.0 inch 1080 x 1920 pixels True Full HD IPS Plus LCD capacitive display, 3 GB of RAM and a choice of 16 and 32 GB onboard memory (with a microSD card slot), and a 2.1 megapixels front and 13 megapixels front cameras.
LG will launch the G Pro 2 with Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box and besides all the standard high end smartphone features like NFC, GPS, 4G LTE, Bluetooth, WiFi and several sensors, the device will also have an FM radio, so if you thought all the major manufacturers have done away with this handy entertainment capability, you are wrong. LG will be launching the LG G Pro 2 in Seoul, Korea, on February 13th ahead of WMC and one of the most conspicuous changes is that the ‘Optimus’ moniker has been dropped, probably to give weight to the ‘G’.
The predecessor of this device, the LG Optimus G Pro did not fare so well in the market when it was introduced last year, but based on the success of the G2 and the great specifications on this device, it should perform better. There are of course other stories on this device you can read here including this and this.
