In case you are beginning to find the LG Optimus G a little bit dated, you are not alone. LG agrees that its current flagship phone has been on the shelf for too much time and deserves to be relieved by another LG flagship device: LG Optimus G Pro.
According to a leaked slide, which looks intended for the media, the Optimus G Pro is revealed to contain a 5 inch display with 1080p resolution, Android Jelly Bean, 1.7GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, 13MP rear facing camera, and a sweet 3,000 mAh battery. The main improvements of the Pro model versus the current Optimus G lies within its display, rear camera, and processor.
The situation here reminds me what HTC did with the One X and One X+. The HTC One X launched as a great flagship device and less than six months later the HTC One X+ was already in the market. I would prefer to see LG allow a little extra time for its flagship device to fully enjoy the spotlight, but such is life in the Android world.
As of now, the LG Optimus G Pro is not yet fully confirmed by LG, so we will likely have to wait until Mobile World Congress 2013 to see if LG opts to announce its newest smartphone. If it is going to launch, then it will launch first in Japan through NTT DoCoMo, and maybe visit other markets.
