LG has something cool to showcase at the MWC event this year, as they announce the LG G Pro 2 in an event in Korea, and as expected the device is a 5.9-inch one with a 1080p display and is internally powered by a Snapdragon 800 processor and 3GB DDR3 RAM. This was nothing less than expected, after the last year’s flagship G2 had the 1080p display under the 5.2-inch screen and it also had the same Snapdragon 800 processor, but the RAM was 2GB.

The LG G Pro 2 is officially going to be unveiled at an event in Korea, on 13th February, for which the electronics company has sent invites already. The event is going to be held at LG Twin Towers in Yeouido, Seoul and the invites read “Knock-knock knockin’ on” which is to indicate about the KnockOn feature, a part of the LG G2’s interface, and this would be a part of the LG G Pro 2 too now.
There are some mouth-watering specs included in the leaked / rumored list, but it’s just within a week from now when we would be able to find the actual specs of the LG G Pro 2.
The LG G Pro 2 has showed itself off to the cameras finally, with the new leaks showing the rear side of the device, and unsurprisingly, it’s the physical buttons placed below the camera just like in the LG G2. The device does look decent from the back, and has a rectangular camera module rather than the circular one in the G2.
We aren’t really far away from the MWC 2014 event, where the company is officially unveiling the G Pro 2 with the whooping 6-inch Full HD display, and some high-end specs packed in.
LG has made the LG G Pro 2 Android phablet official, through their Korean website and although the company hasn’t listed any official specs or other details, they made a clear point that the device would be making a debut at the Mobile World Congress 2014. And we are now confident about the name G Pro 2 because the first gen was in the Optimus series, but now LG has said that the name won’t have the earlier branding to it, and thus the name would be LG G Pro 2.
According to the leaks, the specifications of the G Pro 2 would be:
- Snapdragon 800 processor
- 3GB RAM
- 6-inch Full HD display, or 6-inch Quad HD display
- LTE-Advanced support
- Android 4.4 KitKat
- 13-megapixel camera
The MWC 2014 event is not far from now, thus you would be seeing the official details and our hands-on experience with the device, very soon.
The next flagship devices from LG are already being rumored, after the recent launches of the LG G2, LG G Flex and the G Pro (out of the Optimus series under which the Android phones were launched), and the latest one in the rumors is the LG G Pro 2, which is said to be making a debut in a month from now, at the Mobile World Congress 2014 event in Barcelona. This should be the right time for LG to come up with the new flagship device, as the rumored LG G3 isn’t coming anytime in the first half of 2014.
The G Pro 2 would be a good sized phablet with the 6-inch display, which should be an HD one and these are the specs shared by ETNews from Korea. Taking a step ahead from its predecessor, the LG G Pro 2 should be coming with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor (the G Pro had the Snapdragon 600 chipset) and interestingly, the RAM is also going to be upgraded from here, as the G Pro 2 is said to be coming with the 3GB of RAM (the G Pro and G2 had 2GB RAM). If this is true, the G Pro 2 would be a perfect competitor to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 which has a variant with Snapdragon 800 and 3GB of RAM.
Connectivity wise, the rumored phablet is going to have the LTE-A support for some areas such as Korea, and the OS that would be seen out-of-the-box is Android 4.4 KitKat. LG’s interface in the G2 and the other flagships is quite interesting, and LG would be looking to provide some more features with better support for the multitasking, which should be a USP for the device when launched.
The other details are not yet known, and whatever is listed above is just a part of the rumors as no information is officially leaked, but the news that LG would be looking to announce this during the MWC 2014 (along with the LG G2 Mini) would gain quite a lot of attention. Let’s see what LG has planned, in a month from now.
