LG Optimus G Pro official

At Mobile World Congress 2013, LG will have on display its latest flagship Android smartphone known as the Optimus G Pro.  It is expected to compete with the Galaxy Note II and other high-end devices since it has a 5.5 inch HD display.  On paper, the Optimus G Pro sounds like a great smartphone with the latest hardware, however, its success will be contingent on pricing and availability.

To begin, it offers a 1080p 5.5 inch HD display with a 400PPI, 2GB of RAM, 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, 32GB of onboard memory, 13MP rear facing camera, 2.1MP front facing camera, runs Android 4.1.2, and offers a 3,140 mAh battery.  As a unique video camera feature, the Optimus G Pro is able to record simultaneously from its rear facing and front facing camera to offer a picture-in-picture video.

General availability and pricing is not yet available, but it is said to launch in the United States in Q2.  Hopefully, LG will reveal some more information regarding its phablet during MWC 2013.
