6-inch LG G Pro 2 LTE-A to be announced next month at Mobile World Congress 2014

ByinLeaks & Rumors | January 23, 2014

LGOne month from today the LG Optimus G Pro will be celebrating its first birthday. It’s terribly old, but since LG, like most manufacturers, keeps a one-year update schedule, we can expect a successor very soon. Actually, according to a report from Korean media, the LG G Pro 2 most likely will be announced next month at Mobile World Congress 2014. It’s not that much of a surprise, since the original G Pro was also unveiled at MWC last year.

LG G Pro 2 LTE-A may arrive with 6-inch display

LG G ProWhat may be surprising, though, is that the rumored specs do not coincide with what we heard about the device earlier. Previous rumors suggested that the phone would have a 5.5 or 5.9-inch display with QHD (1440 x 2560) display. Now it looks like the G Pro 2 will feature a 6-inch screen with Full HD (1080p) resolution. The phone will also allegedly offer 3 GB of RAM, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, and LTE-A capabilities and will ship with Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box.

The choice of a Full HD display, although disappointing for some, is pretty understandable. Company’s flagship smartphone for 2014, the LG G3, is expected to come with a 2K display. Announcing a non-flagship phone with such a display two months earlier would definitely steal the show from the G3. Besides, LG likes to be a pioneer in new technologies. Since a device with QHD display was already announced, the pressure to introduce a phone with 2K display is considerably lower.

As for other specs, there are still unknown. Hopefully we will hear more reports about the LG G Pro 2 in the weeks to come, so keep your eyes open for fresh news.
