LG Optimus G Pro

A few days ago, we reported about the potential for LG to introduce an improved version of the Optimus G in the form of the Optimus G Pro.  As it turns out, the rumor is indeed true since NTT DoCoMo will be the lucky beneficiary to launch the high-end smartphone in Japan.  There is no confirmation on whether the Pro model will make it to other markets, so we will have to stay tuned from LG on that end.

In terms of hardware features and specs, the Optimus G Pro offers a 5 inch display with 1080p resolution, 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor, NFC, 3000 mAh battery, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of on board memory.  On the software side, the Optimus G Pro will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box.

As the title mentions, the LG Optimus G Pro will be available for purchase in Japan starting in April 2013.  Pricing at this point in time is undisclosed.  It will definitely be interesting to see LG juggle production for the Nexus 4, Optimus G, Optimus G Pro, and any other devices currently in production.  Hopefully, the manufacturer can rectify any inefficiencies and produce each device at a high capacity.
