South Korean mobile phone maker LG Electronics has made yet another high-end Android-based device official in India, namely the Optimus G Pro (E988), which was initially expected to be launched in the country last month.
The mobile phone was launched in Black and White color flavors, with a price tag of Rs. 42,500 ($708 / €545) attached to it.
The LG Optimus G Pro was unveiled to the world earlier this year with a 5.5-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) touchscreen display and with a 1.7 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor inside.
As fonearena notes in a recent post, the mobile phone also packs a 400 MHz Adreno 320 GPU and 2GB of RAM, as well as 16GB of internal memory, and a microSD memory card slot that enables users to add up to 64GB of additional storage space to it.
Furthermore, the large device hits shelves with 3G HSPA+ 42Mbps connectivity inside, as well as with Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP capabilities, and built-in GPS with aGPS.
On the back, LG Optimus G Pro sports a 13-megapixel photo snapper with LED Flash and support for full HD video recording, paired with a 2.1 MP front-facing camera.
The smartphone is powered by a 3140 mAh removable battery which should provide users with increased usage time. The official specs list also shows that it measures 150.2 x 76.1 x 9.4 mm and weighs 170 grams.
LG loaded the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean operating system on this device, with the Optimus 3.0 UI on top, and with a variety of exclusive features available for its users.
Among these, we can count Dual Recording, which enables users to shoot with both the back and front cameras at the same time, as well as Virtual Reality Panorama Smart Video, Smart Camera, Pause and Resume Recording, and more.
