The LG G Pro 2 phablet broke cover earlier today in Korea with widespread media coverage. The manufacturer has now given out details on its American and European launch schedules and we’re not very impressed. According to ZDNet Korea, the phablet will break cover in the U.S. and Europe by April, while Asian markets including South Korea will see the launch of the smartphone later this month. Since time is everything in the mobile industry, waiting two months to launch a flagship in one of the crucial markets of the world hardly makes any sense.
But considering the hardware and software packed in by LG with the G Pro 2, we don’t think the customers will mind waiting two months. The handset features a 5.9 inch 1080p IPS display panel, 3GB of RAM, 16/32GB of storage with a microSD card slot, a 13MP camera on the back capable of 4K video recording, a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 SoC, Android 4.4 with LG’s newest UI skin and a 3,200 mAh battery. Pricing info hasn’t been disclosed yet, but we hope LG to clear the air about this in the coming weeks. Pricing could be quite crucial as major flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the HTC One Plus/M8 are expected to be launched by then.
