Following rumors and speculation, LG has released the details of its Optimus G Pro Smartphone. The successor to the Optimus G features a 5.5-inch, Full HD IPS 1080p display at 440 pixels per inch (ppi), as well as a relatively massive 3140mAh battery pack. It's fueled by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, which clocks in at 1.7Ghz, as well as a 13MP rear-facing camera and a 2MP front-facing camera with Full HD capabilities, which LG mentions in its press release are of "the same quality found on high definition TVs."
The phone will also feature two new camera modes, dubbed Dual Recording and Virtual Reality (VR) Panorama. Dual Recording will enable users to simultaneously capture video with both the front and rear cameras for a picture-in-picture result, while VR Panorama will enable both horizontal and vertical 360-degree panoramas. The new device will still include some of the Optimus G's most notable features, including Quick Memo.
According to Engadget, the phone will launch on Korean carriers SK Telecom, KT, and LG Uplus, and it won't make its way to North America or Japan until sometime next quarter. LG will debut the phone at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona later this month.
