The smartphone is expected to be unveiled later this month at MWC 2013
South Korean handset maker LG already confirmed plans to unveil a new Android flagship smartphone at Mobile World Congress 2013, later this month.In addition, the company teased a new F-Series family of smartphones, which is likely to be introduced a few days ahead of the trade fair.
In any case, all these unannounced devices will surely be the main stars of LG’s booth from MWC 2013.
Dubbed LG Optimus G Pro, the superphone has been teased a few times by the handset manufacturer, though details on its specs sheet were a bit scarce until today.
The folks over at PhoneArena have been recently tipped on the Optimus G Pro full hardware and software configuration. They even got a live picture of the smartphone, so we now know what to expect.
The main selling point of the LG Optimus G Pro is the stunning 5.5-inch full HD AH-IPS capacitive touchscreen display that supports 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution.
Unfortunately, we’re still not sure if this one will come with Corning Gorilla Glass coating or any other kind of display protection.
Furthermore, the smartphone will be equipped with a powerful 1.7 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory and microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 64GB).
On the back, LG Optimus G Pro boasts an impressive 13-megapixel camera with autofocus, LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording, while in the front there’s a secondary 2.1-megapixel camera for video calls.
Other highlights of the superphone include: Bluetooth 4.0 with HS, dual band Wi-Fi, LTE and NFC (Near Field Communication) support, 3,140 mAh Li-Ion battery and a slim port for HDMI & RGB.
Software-wise, LG Optimus G Pro will ship with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system out of the box, but is likely to receive an Android 4.2 update soon after launch.
