South Korean consumer electronics giant, LG, has officially announced that it would launch the second-generation phablet, G Pro, in February.
The company has dropped the brand name 'Optimus' and has decided to go with the G Pro 2 title as the sequel to 2012's Optimus G Pro.
LG has confirmed to unveil the new phablet next month, but it has refrained from revealing the actual release date and device specifications. With MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2014 all set to kick-off in late February (24-27), many have placed their bets that the company would use the international electronics trade fair as a launch pad to showcase the new G Pro 2.
As far as specifications are concerned, LG G Pro 2 is said to boast of top-the-line features such as 6.0-inch QHD (aka 2K) 2560x1440p resolution display, finger-print sensor, Snapdragon 800 series CPU, 3GB RAM, Android v4.4 KitKat OS and 4G-LTE Advance network support. Other details such as camera, battery capacity are yet to be ascertained.
LG is also working on the flagship smartphone G2 successor, G3. It is pegged to be the company's first handset to boast of an Octa-core CPU (Codenamed Odin) and come with a 5.5-inch QHD display. LG G3 is slated to make its debut in May this year.
