The LG Optimus G (and its many variants) is currently one of the best Android-powered smartphones on the market, but a new leak suggests that LG plans to eclipse its current flagship device with a new Optimus G Pro. According to the leaked slide, the LG Optimus G pro will feature a 5-inch 1,920 x 1,080 full HD display, quad-core 1.7Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, LTE connectivity and a very respectable 3,00 mAh battery.
The device is said to weigh in at 160 grams and measure 139 x 70 x 10.1mm. The Optimus G Pro is also expected to run on Jelly Bean and will sport a 13-megapixel camera on the back with a 2.4 megapixel front-facing camera. The phone is definitely not thin when compared to many of the flagship devices released in 2012, but we’re sure consumers will be more than happy to carry around a slightly thicker device if the 3,000 mAh battery can keep their phone alive for a full day.
Currently, it looks like Japan’s NTT DoCoMo will be among the first service providers to offer the LG Optimus G Pro to its customers, but there’s no indication as to when the device will be stocked on store shelves. With Mobile World Congress only about a month away, don’t be surprised if the LG Optimus G Pro starts showing up in your news feed more often.
