LG Optimus G Pro officially launched in Asia

LG Optimus G Pro

As expected, LG has finally come round and officially launched their flagship Optimus G Pro phablet in Asia. The powerhouse competitor to the Galaxy Note II was first made available in Korea back in February, with a launch in the US (AT&T exclusive) earlier this month. The smartphone goes on sale in Honk Kong in early June.

LG Optimus G Pro Specifications

  • 1.7 GHz Quad Core Krait 300 CPU

The Optimus G Pro is an absolute beast of a phone, with specifications that rival every other flagship. Thankfully (for LG), the Optimus G Pro manages to trump Samsung’s lone ranger Galaxy Note II (in the high-end phablet market) in almost every area, but we expect that to change soon (incoming Galaxy Note III). Nevertheless, the Optimus G Pro is a great option for those looking for the absolute best 5.5 inch phablet.

LG is expected to launch the Optimus G Pro in other markets such as India, Taiwan, Malaysia, Vietnam and the Philippines towards the end of Q2 (end of June). The phablet flagship will be available in Indigo Black & Lunar White colors.
