Earlier today, LG finally unveiled its monstrous LG G Pro 2 phablet, which will hit Korean shores by the end of this month. Although the company didn’t mention when it will land in other parts of the world, a new report suggests it could launch in the US and Europe later this year, possibly after April.
Cho Sung Ha, head of Korea sales at LG’s mobile division said the phablet will launch in Korea by the end of February. He further stated that the phablet will launch in other Asian markets in March where the demand for phablets are high, which will be followed by the launch of the device in the US and Europe. So, it seems if you’re residing in the US or any European country, you may have to wait a little longer before you can get your hands on this piece of beauty.
