LG Optimus Pro released with a huge 5.5 inch display is actually a rival to another Korean phone-tablet hybrid called Galaxy Note 2. The huge, 5.5-inch Android half-phone/half-tablet released this week at MWC in Spain is not only sized upto the competition, but you will clearly notice even the design is similar to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
To put it briefly, LG has included all of the hardware and software seen in the original Optimus G released in fall of 2012 and increased it to a bigger podium. Specs wise the screen on LG Optimus Pro boast a 1920×1080 resolution, with huge 400 PPI density. The phone is powered by a 1.7 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, that handles all those pixels nicely without any lag.
Unlike Galaxy Note 2 the phone does not offer any stylus to handle the huge screen, but there is this extendable antenna that gives the phone all those extra signal bar even in areas with poor reception. On the other hand Galaxy Note 2 Spen is over hyped feature as who requires an accessory from the last decade when touch recognition is so accurate.
The Optimus G Pro is running Android 4.1.2 with LG’s custom UI on top. You will benefit from all of LG’s “Quick” functions, like QNote and QMemo and many more. For those interested in the photography aspect, there’s a 13 MP camera that is slightly extended out from the body.
Now, the huge phablet requires some serious battery backup to lighten up all those pixel, and Optimus G Pro offers removable 3,140 mAh battery. LG has even made the handset wireless charging friendly and therefore you can buy compatible wireless charger to have a tangle free desktop.
