The LG Optimus G Pro release date in India is most likely to fall during the month of June and the phone is currently making its way into various locations around the world. While its predecessor was launched towards the end of February to compete against the Galaxy S3, the device in question will go head-to-head with the Note 2 and the upcoming Samsung flagship.
The South Korean conglomerate’s latest phone was first spotted with a 5-inch display. Well, it turns out that this version is specific for the Japanese market. A larger variant boasting of a 5.5-inch panel was announced later on for its home country and it’s soon to be launched in the US as well as other international destinations. According to BGR India, the news of the handset’s arrival broke out at the company’s Tech Show event which showcases the latest consumer electronics.
Similar to latest flagship phones, this one comes with a 1080p FHD screen and a Cortex A15 based processor which in this case, is a 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 SOC. While a 1.9MP webcam accompanies the display on the front, a 13.1MP camera sits on the rear. Memory-wise, the handset offers 32GB built-in, a microSD card slot supporting up to 64GB and 2GB of RAM.
Earlier this month, the company announced that it would update the OS through a Value Pack update that tags along a host of enhanced features. They include Smart Video that starts or pauses playback based on the position of the owner’s eyes, Dual Camera which permits simultaneous use of both lenses, as well as Pause & Resume Recording that does precisely what its name suggests.
Although, the company has disclosed its plans to release the newest flagship into the country, it didn’t mention how much the LG Optimus G Pro would retail for. Well, word out is that the phone is likely to carry a price which falls higher than the Rs. 40,000 mark.
