LG to release updated Optimus G Pro with 5-inch screen?

LG looking to join the era of the big screen phone

With the recent influx of 5-inch and above screened phones coming from CES, LG are looking to join the party with the Optimus G Pro, an update to its flagship from last year

With MWC taking place in Barcelona next month, it’s no surprise that we are beginning to see a number of new phones begin to leak out. One such device is the LG Optimus G Pro and it comes packing some serious specs.

The twin brother of the Nexus 4, the original Optimus G was released late last year to some acclaim, but the success of its Google branded sibling seemed to take the majority of the limelight.

Expect LG to join the new 5-inch screen revolution, with the likes of the Sony Xperia Z and the upcoming HTC M7, and equip the Pro with 1,920 x 1,080 display. Powering that screen will be a 1.7Ghz Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, also the leak predicts 32GB of memory, 2GB RAM, LTE and a rather large 3,000 mAh battery.

As with any high-end Android phone, it should ship with the smooth Jelly Bean operating system, though this will likely be highly skinned by LG.

In terms of cameras, the Optimus G Pro will have a 13-megapixel-rear shooter and an impressive 2.4-megapixel one on the front. So your self-portraits and Skype chats should be crystal clear.

Stick with T3 for all the news and rumours as we are heading to MWC in February.
