LG Optimus G Pro announced for Japan

Posted In News - By AndroidPress on Thursday, April 4th, 2013 With No Comments »

LG has officially released the Optimus G Pro for those in Japan. The handset will be available by way of NTT DoCoMo and while we have seen plenty on this particular smartphone, this one is arriving with a slightly different display. You see, instead of the 5.5-inch display, the NTT DoCoMo variant will have a 5-inch display. While smaller, the display is still Full HD in resolution.



In fact, this model of the Optimus G Pro has a Full HD IPS display with a 440ppi. Aside from the smaller display, the remaining specs should sound familiar. The handset is running Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and sporting 2GB of RAM with a quad-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor.

Other goodies include 32GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, 3000 mAh battery, 2.1 megapixel front-facing camera and a 13 megapixel rear-facing camera. In addition to Jelly Bean, the handset will also have the Optimus user interface with LG goodies including QSlide, QTranslator, QuickMemo and VR Panorama.

The release of the Optimus G Pro for those in Japan follows the recent sales figure announcement from LG. Just yesterday LG had announced the handset crossed the 500,000 mark in terms of sales. And just to clarify, those figures were based on sales coming out of Korea. We have yet to learn when the Optimus G Pro would arrive in the US, however a similar handset recently appeared with the FCC showing support for AT&T.
