LG reveals the design for the 5.5 inch LG Optimus G Pro

LG reveals the design for the 5.5 inch LG Optimus G Pro
Ok gang, feast your eyes on the beauty that is called the LG Optimus G Pro. The phone, which will have a 5.5 inch FHD display as confirmed by the Korean tech giant on Monday, had its design revealed on Tuesday and the stunning looking piece of kit, as they say in the U.K., will use curved glass to produce a "2.5D" effect. We already told you yesterday that the resolution on the screen works out to a pixel density of 401ppi which should please your eyes. The device will be available in black or white.

LG also said that the phone will have a quad-core processor and all bets are on it being a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro, most likely the APQ8064. The beast is expected to be released later this month in South Korea and we hope that distribution becomes global. This is one hot model that we're hoping to get a look at in Barcelona in a couple of weeks at MWC 2013.

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. http://www.engadget.com/2013/02/04/samsung-lg-oled-peace/

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
