During 2014’s first couple of days, rumors originating from LG’s homeland (South Korea, if you didn’t know) have been claiming that, before we’ll get to see the highly anticipated LG G3, the manufacaturer will release a sequel to its first pahblet (the LG Optimus G Pro).
Until now, details regarding the so called LG G2 Pro have been scarce. Reports have only mentioned the fact that it will likely come with a QHD screen (5.5 or 5.9 inches, 1440 x 2560 pixels), a fingerprint sensor, and that it could be released around March. However, thanks to the ever active Korean insiders, we now might have a better idea of what LG’s upcoming phablet will pack under its hood.
According to the Korean media, the LG G2 Pro will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC (the exact model isn’t specified, but we’re hoping for either 8974-AB or 8974-AC), will feature a Full HD 6-inch screen, 3GB of RAM, and will run on Android 4.4.
We must notice that, according to this latest report, LG G2 Pro’s display will not be QHD, but rather Full HD (1080p). This is by no means a deal breaker (same resolution as Galaxy Note 3), and come to think of it, it actually makes sense as the company’s upcoming 2014 flagship (LG G3) will most likely feature a QHD screen.
And probably LG doesn’t want to steal LG G3’s thunder by announcing and releasing a “no flagship device” featuring a 1440×2560 display just one or two months earlier.
The report continues by saying that the LG G2 Pro will be released sometime next month, probably after a MWC 2014 announcement.
So what do you think? Would you be interested in such a phablet (which sounds like it’s going to give Galaxy Note 3’s a run for its money)? Let us know in the comments section.
