One day after confirming the 5.5 inch screen on the LG Optimus G Pro, the Korean manufacturer is giving us the whole picture, so to speak,of what the smartphone is going to look like; LG is using curved glass to produce what it calls a 2.5D effect and the device will have a full HD display resulting in a pixel density of 401ppi, and a quad-core processor will be powering the handset...

What I saw is a design of GNote II with HTC One X camera.

Its a copy og G note 2 and a bad one at that...copying the look and feel is easy...copying the usefulness is a totally different ball game!
This is just a phone with a 5.5 inch screen...it isnt a phablet like the Note 2 as it does not have anything even close to the software and utilities present on the G Note 2!

Well, it is less ugly than the Optimus G. I understand the use of physical buttons to enlarge the screen. but this SIII's like button is a very bad choice.

Less ugly than the LGOG? ummm the LGOG is probably the best looking phone on the market besides the Nexus 4.

I'm sure it will be a great handset, but the front looks WAY too much like the Galaxy Note II

I'm eagerly waiting for Samsung to sue LG due to the design of this phone. It's a Samsung Galaxy Note II with LG printed on it!

Samsung can not sue LG.
Such design was originally started by LG.

Samsung is not Apple, neither is LG, they have settled their patentable OLED dispute out of court with maturity.

Since they dont sue each over of the designs of HDTV's and monitors....I hope they dont start stooping to that level now.

Majority of people like the physical button thats why they are the best selling phones right now, you dont have to kill your power button to wake up, which is a bit awkward with a big phone and its much easier to reach for the home button all the time.

All phones from now on will all look very similar just like your laptops, pc, tv etc cos to be honest there's only so much to what you can do with a rectangle with four corners.

While it's indeed hard to get creative with touchscreen slabs, that's not entirely true. Look at Nokia's devices and you will see.

True, Nokia's design is brilliant but its same from their 800/900 Lumia series. As i said from now on whatever you design will ultimately look like another that has been done before unless you wanna go triangular, pentagonal or hexagonal design

Xperia Z has a nice big metallic power button that is placed where it is easily accessible

Samsung won't sue though. Although this phone will sell, Samsung's 2013 line up will come out with something better.

I got 10 "dislike" comments for speaking my mind... Booo! Anyway, I hold to my word, Samsung should sue LG for this design. It's too similar to Samsung Galaxy Note II

This phone has my interest and I'm very interested. I'm afraid it won't have a removable battery though and I will have to cross it off the list of phones to consider.
