The LG Optimus GK is like the LG Optimus G Pro, but with a 5 inch screen
Looking for a way to take on the Samsung Galaxy S4 with its 5 inch screen, fellow Korean manufacturer LG has introduced the LG Optimus GK on Monday morning. This is a shrunk down version of the LG Optimus G Pro that takes the 5.5 inch screen of the latter and makes it a more manageable 5 inches. The rest of  the specs remain the same except for the pixel density which rises from 401ppi on the larger screened device to 441ppi on the 5 inch model.

The LG Optimus GK so far is scheduled to be released in South Korea only and does include some of the same features found on the LG Optimus G Pro such as VR Panorama, which helps users stitch together a series of photos into one panoramic shot. Dual Camera, which allows for the use of the front and rear camera at the same time, is another feature found on both LG phones. And both models offer Smart Video, which uses the front-facing camera to determine if the person using the phone is still watching a video on the device's screen. Once the camera "sees" that there are no eyes on the screen, the video is paused.

So far, LG has not announced a launch date or a price for the LG Optimus GK.

LG Optimus GK 139.1*69.9* 9.9 mm 156g Vs Galaxy S4 136.6 x 69.8 x 7.9 mm 130g 500mAh is not everything

You really think you'll notice a few millimeters in height or width? In thickness, yes there's a difference of 2 mm but the difference in height and width is minimal. And 500mAh isnt everything but atleast its something. I'm pretty sure this phone will feel better in hand because of the added weight.

larger battery doesn't necessarily means better battery life.. we all know how crappy lg is in optimising software with hardware.. not being a fanboy, its one of the universal truths in smartphone world

You obviously dont know what you are talking about. The battery life on my Optimus G is great. Every Optimus G owner will say the same.

i have checked the reviews on youtube and battery life is less than that of the s3 despite being the same battery size

Many reviews actually had the OG beating the s3 in battery life. Screen time is comparable but the OG destroys the s3 in talk time.

Does anyone remember it be reported that the Optimus G Pro would be available in a 5inch variant in certain markets in addition to the 5.5inch variant available now in South Korea & soon AT&T? I believe it was actually reported here on P.A.....
