LG is expected to reveal two new high end smartphones for 2014, successors to the LG G Pro and LG G2. As Digital Trends reports (Jan. 20), the buzz around Korean “inside sources” is that the LG G Pro 2 and the LG G3, could be revealed at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014 in February.
Both the G Pro 2 and G3 are rumored to feature pixel resolutions of 2560 x 1440, surpassing the 1080p screens found on most current top-of-the line devices. The original LG G Pro features a 5.5-inch display and we could see an increase to 5.9-inches on the upcoming G Pro 2.
LG is rumored to release the LG G3 on May 17 after the expected April launch of the Samsung Galaxy S5. Along with a 1440p display, rumored features for the LG G3 include a Quad HD display (QHD), an octa-core processor and possibly a 16MP rear-camera. The G3 will be a contender against the Galaxy S5 which is rumored to boast a QHD Super AMOLED display. Reports are that the LG G3 launch may have been purposely rescheduled to go head to head with the anticipated Samsung Galaxy series handset.
LG is serving up some competitive devices including the G2 and the soon-to-be released LG G-Flex. If the rumored hardware specs for its upcoming G Pro 2 and G3 turn out to be true, LG will undoubtedly give Samsung a run for its money in the smartphone market. On the heels of Samsung’s Galaxy Gear watch made to interact with select Samsung devices, LG may answer back and reveal an interactive smartwatch of it own called the G Arch.
