It's official! LG G Pro 2 to be unveiled next month
Korean manufacturer LG has made it official. Monday morning in Korea, the company announced that the LG G Pro 2, the sequel to the one time flagship LG Optimus G Pro, will be unveiled in February. LG stopped short of saying whether the introduction of the phone would actually happen at MWC, which is taking place in Barcelona from February 24th through February 27th.

The latest rumor has the LG G Pro 2 carrying a 6 inch glass with resolution of 1080 x 1920, and powered by a Snapdragon 800 processor. 3GB of RAM is said to be inside. The announcement made by LG on Monday merely revealed that the phone will be introduced next month. LG did not discuss pricing or list the specs of the phone in its release.

Ironically, it was at MWC 2013 when the LG Optimus G Pro was announced. Since then, the manufacturer 86'd the Optimus name, promising to use the letter "G" with all of its top-shelf models, along with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. The device has a 5.5 inch screen, LG's first phone with a screen size in excess of 5 inches, and still the largest display on an LG handset.

LG has since launched its current flagship, the LG G2 and the curved screen LG G Flex. Sales of the former have reportedly been under forecast with 2.3 million units sold after four months, and only 600,000 domestic sales made.

LG is one of the most under rated phones out there.. i dont get why people cant see its capabilities and the beauty of its phones.. the G2 kills almost all of the android phones out there (except the note 3) and still people cant seem to acknowledge that..

I agree. Although I don't personally own this phone, this phone easily trumps almost anything out there: Screen size, great camera, amazing battery life, knock on feature just to name few. I'm guessing it's due to marketing and name recognition of Apple and Samsung.

But at the same time, the Note 3 is in the phablet area, but it's just slighty inferior. I am a G2 user myself, and I can't say more good things with this phone.

Everything that you said might just be true... But there is another thing that's true about LG as well, slow to NO "updates"! Samsung keeps their phones better up-to-date than LG.

Ofcourse it will fall short if you will compare it with note 3... not a fare comparison

Will the G Pro2 be equipped with OIS, hyper thin side bezzels and rear button?
If it's true, than the G2 Pro will be my next target.

I am also thinking about the G Pro 2 but I will prefer if it comes with traditional side mounted buttons (one of the reasons I have NOT buyed a G2).

But my main problem is... I like to use simple & clean of BS bloatware Android software. The reason I have a Nexus phone.

It will be perfect if it comes & is sold in a GPe version.

"The device has a 5.5 inch screen, LG's first phone with a screen size in excess of 5 inches, and still the largest display on an LG handset."

So they forgot about the G Flex then..............

if you had read the paragraph carefully, you'd realise they were referring to the Optimus G Pro

Where both the G Pro and G2 lost out was that the camera was reasonably good, but actual photographs were not always better than the Note 3 and in some cases fell short of the Note 3 (see GSMarena reviews, plus comparison tools. Other reviews gave mixed views in bright light, low light, flash light).
LG need the G Pro 2 to have top specs and a great camera that produces great photographs, and they need to release it sooner rather than later.
