LG G Pro 2 to join the 6-inch club next month, 3 GB RAM and KitKat in tow
The latest rumor on the LG G Pro 2 that is eventually coming next month, is that it will sport a 6" Full HD screen, 3 GB of RAM, and be powered by a Snapdragon 800 processor. This citation from Korean media differs quite a bit from the last speculation on the device, which pegged it with a 5.9" display at 1440x2560 pixels of QHD resolution, so apparently we'll be on our toes until MWC time, when the phablet is said to be unveiled with Android KitKat on board.
It's kind of hard to fathom why would LG want to release the 6-incher with "just" a 1080p screen, though. All flagships this year are expected to sport QHD displays, and it would be easier and less expensive to make a 6" panel with 1440x2560 pixels, than a smaller one. On the other hand, LG usually tries to be the first to announce something new, but we already had the Vivo Xplay 3S unveiled with a 6" QHD panel, so that feat goes out of the window.
Moreover, if Samsung indeed outs the Galaxy S5 details on February 23rd at its pre-MWC event, it will steal the QHD thunder quite a bit, so LG might have decided to keep it simpler this time. Not that a Full HD phablet with 3 GB of RAM and powerful Snapdragon is anything to sniff at, so we'll just have to wait and see what would really happen in just a few weeks from now. As always, we'll be right smack in the middle of all the action in Barcelona, and will relay each and any info that comes our away on the spot.
