Before launching the G3, LG might release a G Pro 2
We already told you about the LG G3, which may be announced in the second half of 2014. But what will LG do in the meantime? Well, among other things, the company could launch a sequel to the Optimus G Pro (sans the Optimus branding, of course).
Korean website Naver recently reported that the successor to the Optimus G Pro might be called LG G Pro 2. This could be released around March – or at least that’s what a local analyst believes. There are no details on the features of this alleged G Pro 2, so we don’t know if, like the G3, the new G Pro is also expected to sport a Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) display. In any case, it might keep the screen size of the original G Pro (5.5 inches) and bring improvements in other departments.
A G Pro 2 scheduled to be released around March makes perfect sense. It would allow LG to have a new high-end handset on the market to try and compete with Samsung’s expected Galaxy S5, while giving the company more time to perfect the G3 (and possibly also a new curved, flexible handset).
