LG G Pro 2 shows its rear-mounted buttons to the camera


Jonesing to learn more about LG’s upcoming flagship phone, the G Pro 2? The company recently confirmed that the follow-up to 2013′s Optimus G Pro will make its official debut in February, but as is often the case with new smartphone hardware, images of the G Pro 2 have leaked out before its announcement.

The device shown in these photos sports a design that’s fairly similar to LG’s other recent flagship releases, the G2 and G Flex, complete with rounded corners and a set of rear-mounted volume and power buttons resting beneath its camera. There’s also a camera flash, loudspeaker and some LG branding on the back of the G Pro 2. A side view of the phone gives us a small peek at its front, which looks fairly clean with only an earpiece and LG tattoo.

The LG G Pro 2′s spec details are still up in the air at this point, but considering that its predecessor sported a large 1080p display and quad-core processor, it seems likely that the G Pro 2 will boast similar features. The rumor mill has suggested that the G Pro 2 could come to market with a 6-inch screen, up from the 5.5 incher found on the Optimus G Pro, as well as a Snapdragon 800 chip and 3GB of RAM. While obviously still unconfirmed, those features sound like pretty safe bets for a 2014 flagship phone.

What do you think of the LG G Pro 2 so far? Does its rumored combo of a big, high-res display and rear-mounted buttons pique your interest?

    if it would have the snap 805, that would be interesting, but like this, its just an oversized lg g2…

      I agree. If you want to put out a “phablet”, then you need to bump up the specs, throw in another gb RAM, and load it up with more bells and whistles that will only work on an oversized screen. Give someone a reason to strap this monster to their belt, lol, not just the exact same thing with another inch on the screen.

    That side view looks like a non-removable battery! So this may sport the same removable battery/microsd features that the original Pro had! That should get me to take a look at this device.
