LG Optimus G Pro - Rival - Samsung Galaxy Note 2 - in North America
LG’s new Android phablet looking slightly similar to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 — the LG Optimus G Pro, is headed to the United States at some point according to the latest report posted by The Verge.
The Optimus G Pro is the larger version of the LG Optimus G, the “big brother” of the LG Google Nexus 4.
Similar to other Android handsets out there that will invade the market this year, the LG Optimus G Pro will offer Android Jelly Bean mobile operating system out of the box — but one of its highlights is the latest quad-core processor from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 600.
For starters, Snapdragon 600 is like the “Pro” version of the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Krait processor (the processor of the Google Nexus 4), and it offers “40 percent” speed increase, so, it is quite obvious that the Optimus G Pro is more powerful than Google’s 2012 flagship Android phone. The Optimus G Pro is also a strong contender that can compete with the rumored Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
Unlike its biggest rival, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, the LG Optimus G Pro is offering a 5.5-inch LCD display with 1080p display resolution — boasting 400 pixels per inch. An LCD plus 1080p display — far better than the Galaxy Note 2′s Super AMOLED 720p display. Of course, we still need to see if the display offers better color reproduction.
No word yet for the LG Optimus G Pro details in United States, but it’ll be safe to say that Verizon Wireless and AT&T will carry this handset based on LG and the two carriers’ relationship. Verizon offered the LG Vu while AT&T offered the LG Thrill 4G, the re-packaged US version of the LG Optimus 3D. A T-Mobile Optimus G Pro variant is also possible because the carrier is currently the exclusive on-contract seller of the LG Nexus 4 in United States.
