LG have just unveiled their super-sized 5.5-inch Optimus G Pro, and by name only it might not excite you, but it does feature a new CPU that was just announced by Qualcomm.
LG's 5.5-inch Optimus G Pro will include the quad-core Snapdragon 600 CPU that is a slight upgrade on the already amazing Snapdragon S4 Pro. Software tweaks have also been made, including a dual record function that allows both cameras to record simultaneously and a VR Panorama mode that looks similar to Google's Photo Sphere stitching mode.
We obviously get a 5.5-inch screen, and a larger 3,140mAh battery compared to the older 3,000mAh battery. Finishing off the specs, we have 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, microSDXC slot and 4G LTE support.
LG will release the 5.5-inch Optimus G Pro to local carriers in South Korea first, with SK Telecom, KT and LG Uplus on Wednesday with a North American launch happening sometime in Q2, as well as Japan. We should hopefully see more on the 5.5-inch Optimus G Pro at Mobile World Congress 2013 later this week.
