LG has finally come good with Optimus G Pro being the successor of Optimus Vu in one or the other way. I would call not exactly the successor of Vu phone but altogether it’s the extension of Optimus G to large screen display. Check here the international availability, specifications, features of Optimus G Pro phone. This smartphone will be the front runner at LG Booth MWC.
LG Optimus G Pro
LG Optimus G Pro will go hand-to-hand with Galaxy Note 2 in competition and will be certainly on the comparison chart with #1 smartphone vendor. Optimus G Pro is certainly with impressive physical specifications. For the starters, it features 5.5 inch True full HD IPS display screen providing stunning 1920 x 1080p resolution which is at par with 2013 handsets like Sony Xperia Z, Note II. The pixel density is quite better with 401 ppi pixel density output. Both front and rear side of the phone is made up with Gorilla Glass 2 protection technology.
Under the hood, you can feel the power of the quad core as it packs Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor clocked at 1.7 Ghz and supported with 2 GB of DDR3 RAM providing faster response time. The graphical and gaming needs is powered by Adreno 320 unit. It looks like NTT Docomo launch of Optimus G Pro was just an experiment in South Korea (also worldwide) this would be available with larger 3140 mAh battery providing atleast 7 hours of continuous talk time on air but sadly it's a non-removable battery. But will you miss Stylus just like Galaxy Phone? Don't think so!
With powerful specifications you can expect 4G LTE connectivity providing faster download and upload speed reaching 50 Mbps. LG Electronics have paid attention to the camera unit as well. Keeping up pace with Xperia Z launch, it packs 13 mega pixel camera on the rear side with 2 mega pixel front facing camera as well, both capable of 1080p HD video recording & face to face video chat. On the rear side we see LED flash with features like auto focus, Geo-tagging, face detection, image stabilization added to camera unit.
Other specifications of the device includes Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS out of the box, 32 Gb internal memory and micro SD card slot to expand the storage up to additional 32 GB in size. While you are MWC 2013 at Barcelona later last week of February don’t forget to gets hand-on with LG’s flagship smartphone going through 2013.

The design looks to be bit stolen but overall it looks fine just like Optimus 4X. Hoping no repeat show like that of Optimus 4X or Optimus Vu.
