LG announced the successor to their LG Otimus G Pro smartphone back at MWC 2014, covering the specs, but not where or when we could be expecting it. Today LG announced that the where would be a host of Asian countries, namely; Singapore, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Philippines, Indonesia and other Asian countries.
The G Pro 2 is LG’s first major launch the G2 last year and is the successor to the Optimus G pro which also landed last year. LG G Pro 2 comes with an impressive array of specs and a pretty large 5.9 inch full HD display (1920 x 1080) there’s also a 13 megapixel camera round the back which has optical image stabilization (OIS) and a pretty snappy 2.26GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor which is backed up by 3GB of RAM.
The LG G Pro 2 will cone out the box representing Android KitKat 4.4.2 with LG’s Optimus UI running on the top, which is actually one of the cleanest Android skins around and offers minimal tweaks, such as; Dual Browser, Mini View and LG’s new Knock code.
LG released a statement explaining why Asia is their continent of choice to begin the rollout;
“With its 5.9-inch Full HD IPS display, versatile camera functions and user-oriented UX features, we expect the LG G Pro 2 to make a strong impression with Asian customers. Asian consumers have been the biggest fans of smartphones with displays over five inches and we wanted to make sure that the G Pro 2 exceeded their high expectations,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.
Let’s hope the G Pro 2 doesn’t take too much time making its way to European/ North American shores.
