LG revealed official announcement and name details for the upcoming LG Optimus G Pro phablet. As GSMArena reports Monday (Jan. 27), the mobile manufacturer decided to drop “Optimus” from the name and is calling its successor the “G Pro 2”.
The G Pro 2 will join the existing family of LG “G series” smartphones, the Optimus G, Optimus G Pro and G2. According to LG Electronics’ Korean website, each device exceeded sales of over 1 million units worldwide. Other than revealing that a February announcement is set for the LG G Pro 2, LG did not give specifics about the exact date or venue. Rumors suggest that LG could unveil the new phone at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014 in Barcelona next month.
The G Pro 2’s specs are still a mystery, although rumors suggest it could feature 3GB of RAM and a 5.9-inch 1440p display. The existing LG Optimus G Pro features 2GB of RAM, a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a 1.7 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 CPU, 32GB of internal storage space and a 13 MP back camera.
