LG G4 Pro specs appear via GFXBench; 4 GB of RAM, a 5.7-inch quad-HD display and more
Beyond the mere flagship, the biggest names in mobile tech have rallied to offer 'pro' and 'plus' models of their top-end gadgets in recent years. As technology has matured, vendors have sought new ways to stand out from the crowd, and as such, many manufacturers now drop several flagship-standard handsets a year as a matter of protocol. LG's G4 arrived to a fair dose of acclaim earlier this year, and with a special press event slated for October 1st in NYC, the company isn't done just yet. The G4 Pro has been rumored constantly over the past couple of months, with plenty of speculation regarding what will, and what won't be included. Now, a GFXBench leak appears to spill all of the juicy details.

It's always a tad risky and presumptuous to glean from benchmark statistics, particularly since they can be faked. It'd be rude not to pay some attention, though, particularly since we're talking about a potentially exciting release, and a device described as the elusive G4 Pro has just popped up on GFXBench.

According to the specs, it seems that the G4 Pro (model H900) bests the current G4 in most of the key departments. The display, as one would expect of a 'pro' variant, could be increased from 5.5 to 5.7 inches, with LG apparently poised to throw in an extra gig of RAM to boot. The move from from 3 to 4 GB of RAM should also present a more fluid user experience, while the on-board storage may also be doubled to 64 GB. The Snapdragon 808 SoC, however, will stay the same according to the GFXBench info, with LG having taken the somewhat logical step and avoiding the notorious Snapdragon 810 so far. With this, there probably won't be a chance for the Snapdragon 820 to strut its stuff, as was previously suggested

The 15 and 5-megapixel cameras to the rear and front of the LG G4 Pro seem, on paper, a slight drop from those of the G4's respective 16 and 8-megapixel offerings. That said, the Pro should still offer 4K video recording, and we'd certainly expect a strong performance akin to the standard G4's impressive shooters. 

Whether this is the same devices as the also-rumored LG V10 -- which is said to feature a secondary display -- remains to be seen. With any luck, though, we'll have at least two exciting devices to mull over come October 1st.

If this retains the removable battery and SD, while gaining a fingerprint scanner on par with Apple's, I think this will be the best phone of 2015 and the one to own. The price should be no more than $400.

LG G4 is already $400, so this device should be $600. You alway complain about removable battery and micro sd. Now you'll have it, so plz be logical and dont demand a very low price. Not atleast at launch.

I stand by the $400 price point. Also, LG needs to include ALL US radio bands so one version can be used on ALL US carriers.

This should have been the Nexus 6P and the Huawei Ascend P8 the Nexus 5x....what is wrong with the people involved. They would have made more money and less work for both Huawei and LG.

I thought it was supposed to have a 5.8 inch display, not 5.7? What about the battery? I love LG phones and would be interested in this one, but only if the battery lasts as long as my current phone - Huawei Ascend Mate 7 - 48 hours between charges.

5312 x 2988 is same resolution that G4 uses... Why am I not even suprised PA is making so simple mistakes?

The specs on this seem strange for a Pro line model, especially if it's suppose to be above a G4 and take on models like the Galaxy S6+ and Note 5. They seem to be a closer to the LG Class that was released in a Korea a few weeks ago just with a larger screen, more RAM, and internal memory. So far there's nothing that would make me want to bypass any top tier Samsung Galaxy model or relunctantly even consider an iPhone.

I'm hoping these smaller cameras mean something like bigger sensor and pixels to improve low light use or this really isn't an upgrade.
