LG Optimus G Pro Superphone Announced in Japan

Paul Lilly

We've been hearing rumors of a high-octane successor to LG's already well-equipped Optimus G smartphone, and they've now been confirmed by a wireless carrier in Japan . LG's next superphone is the Optimus G Pro, a heavy-hitting device with a 5-inch Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) IPS display and 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, along with several other high-end amenities.

Wireless carrier NTT DoCoMo posted all the details in a PDF document , which also includes specs for a handful of other announced phones. According to the spec sheet, the Pro model Optimus G has 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD card slot), 2.4MP front-facing camera, 13MP rear-facing camera, a non-removable 3,000 mAh battery, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box.

Dimensions weren't listed in the announcement, though LG fused the glass surface with the touchscreen for an overall thinner profile.

It's not yet known when the Optimus G Pro will ship to the rest of the world.
