LG has a history of releasing way too many barely tweaked phones close to one another and therefore confusing users, but for some reason the company is not abandoning the strategy. The Optimus G Pro is the latest flagship device revealed by the Koreans, but, as far as we can tell, it’s too close to the Optimus G released in August 2012 hardware-wise.
Moreover, we’re hearing LG is planning to intro yet another top-tier phone in the fall, supposedly called Optimus G2, which we guess will again step things up only half a notch. Still, right now the G Pro doesn’t look bad, featuring a beautiful 5-inch Full HD panel and a fast and furious quad-core 1.7 GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU.
The design is a bit of a letdown, especially the 10 mm thick profile, but you should be happy to hear the battery has been upgraded from 2,100 to 3,000 mAh. The rest of the specs are satisfying, but nothing quite extraordinary for a high-end phone these days – 2 GB of RAM, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, 13 MP rear-facing camera.
For the moment, the G Pro is only officially headed to Japan, where it should go on sale in April, but we’ll probably hear about a global launch sooner or later.
