LG Optimus G Pro 5.5-inch Android Phablet Announced

February 12, 2013

LG officially announced and unveiled the super-sized 5.5-inch Optimus G Pro Android phablet tonight. The smartphone-tablet hybrid is scheduled for a late February release in South Korea and it’s unknown at this point whether we’ll see it in other markets in the future. The handset-maker only confirmed the screen size, 1080p Full HD resolution and quad-core processor, but the remaining specs should line up with what we already know of the slightly smaller Japanese Optimus G Pro. If so, that means it will pack a Qualcomm APQ8064 Snapdragon S4 Pro 1.7GHz quad-core CPU, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage expandable via microSD card, 13 megapixel rear camera, 2.1MP front-facing camera, LTE connectivity and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. A previous rumor also pegged the phone with an improved 3,140mAh battery.

As for the aesthetic design of the newest Optimus G Pro, the glass display is apparently curved to give a sense of depth that LG describes as a “2.5D mystical effect.” We’re pretty sure that’s just marketing lingo for a concept we’ve already seen brought to fruition on a handful of phones though. It’s difficult to tell from the press shots, but LG also claims it has a very thin bezel around the sides of the screen to help maintain a sleek overall design. The back of the device has a “digital cube” pattern as well. You can see the Optimus G Pro in black and white color options in the image gallery below.
