LG Optimus G Pro is being released in 40 more countries


The LG Optimus G Pro was released very tentatively in Korea and the US. It seems that sales have gone pretty well these last few months, because LG is finally releasing the device in other countries. LG has announced that it will begin selling the device in 40 new countries, like Russia and across Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America. Unfortunately, there is no mention of the UK.

With a 5.5-inch IPS LCD display with a 1080p resolution, a quad core Snapdragon 600 processor, and a 13MP camera, this phone is just as good as when it was released. Plus, its competitors have yet to outspec it, so the late launch isn’t much of a detriment to LG. However, have potential customers gotten tired of waiting and decided to buy another phone by now? We wonder how well the device will do in these new countries.

LG may not be the biggest player in the mobile industry, but it’s creating some nice products very much worthy of a look. If you live outside of the US, will you be considering the LG Optimus G Pro as your next device?

    The Japanese version of this phone on NTT Docomo as well as the Optimus G Pro K released only in Korea are identical phones, both are identical to the US and Korean Optimus G Pro’s save for the display being a 5″ Full HD IPS instead of 5.5″. As much as I love the 5.5″ version, it is just too big for me to use on a regular basis but it is easily my favorite Android device out now other than the One.

    I would get the 5″ version if it wasn’t going for $600+ on eBay.

    They can’t compete with Samsung if they are not able to release a device in all countries at the same time. I still remember the Nexus 4 supply disaster.

      Don’t even mention that.

      That was just as much, if not more Google’s fault but why let facts get in the way of an emotive argument :)

    Too late LG. With your 5.2″ G2 launching in the next few months and after you snubbed Australia and a bunch of other countries why would we be stupid enough to buy one now.

    I’m glad to see LG getting some love. The Optimus G Pro is a great phone

    I really like the way this phone and the HTC One look and are constructed. Very nice. But, I just cant make myself like the HUGE screen sizes. I had an HTC Rezound with a 720p 4.3″ display that I think was the perfect size. No way I would go with a 5″+ screen. So, they’ll not get my business until they release a highend CPU phone with a 4″-4.3″ screen.
