Today, South Korean mobile phone maker LG Electronics announced the availability of its LG Optimus G Pro smartphone in Japan, where it is available for purchase on the network of wireless carrier NTT DOCOMO.

The Android-based smartphone already proved successful in the handset vendor’s homeland market, with over half a million units sold in the first 40 days of availability, and it might attract a lot of users to its side in Japan as well.

Optimus G Pro arrives in this country with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor inside, as well as with a 5-inch full HD IPS display that can deliver a 440ppi pixel density, and has been designed specifically for the Japanese market, LG claims.

According to LG, users who will adopt the device will enjoy seamless performance capabilities while on the go, while also taking advantage of a great viewing experience on its Zerogap Touch screen, great for delivering rich, crisp text, sharp images and wide viewing angles.

The smartphone also comes with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory, a microSD memory card slot to expand it, a 13-megapixel photo snapper on the back, 2MP front camera for making video calls, and a 3000 mAh battery inside.

LG also packed it with new user experience functions, such as Dual Recording and VR Panorama, enabling users to record with both the back and front cameras at the same time, or to shoot full 360-degree views of their surroundings.

Other features of the device include QSlide, QTranslator and QuickMemo, all of which are meant to complement the Optimus UI, set to deliver ease of use and simple device management.

“The Optimus G Pro showcases LG’s leadership in display technology with its Full HD IPS Display and differentiated UX functions,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.

“With a combination of style and a unique mobile experience, Optimus G Pro carries on the premium heritage of the entire Optimus G series.”
