Leaked images show LG’s G Pro 2 as a larger G2 smartphone

All this while, we’ve called the LG Gx smartphone the successor to the Optimus G Pro. Well, it turns out that it isn’t the refresh we’ve been waiting for, but merely a variant which for additional markets across the globe including the UK where the original phablet wasn’t launched. Nevertheless, a true successor is in the works and it has been officially confirmed by the South Korean conglomerate to arrive as the G Pro 2.

Just a couple of days back, the company issued a statement regarding the handset’s upcoming launch. Apart from a name, no other details were provided, not even an image. Well, we’ve got a leak to thank as alleged pictures of the LG G Pro 2 in the wild have arrayed online via DCinside.

G Pro 2

Based on the images, the LG G Pro 2 will carry forward the same design used for the G2 flagship. The device is rumored to have a 6-inch 1080p screen, so it should look almost identical to the G Flex except for the curved form factor and the self-healing build. We can confirm that the smartphone will have on-screen buttons and the volume rockers have been shifted to the rear just below the camera which should be 13MP.

There’s nothing on specifications as yet, but we expect LG to employ the same hardware the G2 currently rocks, a Snapdragon 800 SOC and 2GB of RAM. Chances are high that a large capacity battery will be onboard as well. Additionally, you can be sure to find various software enhancements from the South Korean conglomerate.
