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.
