Rumor: LG G Pro 2 may make its debut at MWC 2014 in February

LG Optimus G Pro aa 5 4g lte 600

Mobile World Congress 2014 is just around the corner and with just one month to wait, the rumors about what we might expect to see showcased are starting to heat up. The latest device tipped to make an appearance is the LG G Pro 2, the successor to the LG Optimus G Pro. Korea’s Electronic Times is reporting that the handset could make an appearance at next month’s MWC, and it looks like something pretty special.

The LG G Pro 2 is expected to ship with Android 4.4 KitKat installed, and the phone reportedly features a 6-inch full HD screen and a Snapdragon 800 CPU. Though we don’t have the full details just yet, bolstered by 3GB of RAM, this is unlikely to be a slouch.

In fact, LG’s latest handset appears remarkably similar to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, with 3GB of RAM becoming commonplace in higher-end devices. Very little else is known about the handset at this stage, but there is allegedly support for not only LTE, but also LTE-Advanced networks.

As this could be LG’s first handset running KitKat out of the box, it will be breaking new ground for the South Korean electronics giant.

    i dont care why do we get exited about phone that run KitKat out of the box, instead of looking at x64 or telling that the device has 64GB in it’s name, but we can only use 40 … because 24 it’s reserved for google to keep a log of what we do …

          dude that explains everything

        • cybernet2u

          so do you like when on the damn box says 8GB, but when you see the free space it says 4.3 GB free … are you a masochist ?

        • cybernet2u

          do you like when it sais that your camera is 5Mpx, but actually a 3.2Mpx from a nokia phone makes better pictures than that crap from scamsung ?

            Going back to your old comments about how you get less storage, its not for google to keep a log of what we do. Often times, it may be 64 gigabytes of storage, but the actual formatted space is less, and some is reserved for the different partitions such as operating system. If the camera is not that good, so what? It’s just a camera. It’s a phone for godsakes, not a real camera.

          • cybernet2u

            look if the device has the name S3 Mini 8GB … what is the first thing you think of ? that it has 8 GB of space. i’m a geek i know what are you trying to say ( 1TB has 1000GB not 1024 as it should and a 2GB usb stick will always have 1.7 GB formatted as FAT32 or less if NTFS or even less if ext4 … anyway ) that is not my problem … if android needs space just create it’s own memory and use as much as he wants but i shouldn’t pay for its rullz i would talk more about this, but its not the place …

          • Jayfeather787

            Ok, I understand now.

  • wat

    This device is why I didnt pull the trigger on the lg g2. I wanted to but I was really really hoping that lg would update the pro line with something in tow with the g2. Changes I would love to see: 32gb internal with sd card. 3500mah battery and physical or capacitive buttons…no on screen buttons I hate em…they dont play nice with some apps like jetflicks or most games

    • User

      physical or capacitive buttons…Google are trying to kill it.

      On screen button on my G2 doesn’t bad at all.

  • Jayfeather787

    This better have an sd card slot and removable battery like original g pro.

    • cybernet2u

      why do you need a removable battery ?

      • Jayfeather787

        I like a removable battery. In case it runs out during the day, I just pop in another one. Also, batteries can only be charged so many times before they go bad, and if I can get new batteries, then I can continue using the phone. Also, I can do a battery pull if need be.

        • cybernet2u

          but since you have warranty on your phone, you can send it to customer service and ask to replace your phone. it’s their loss mostly … and your cause you will have to use something else for a week …

  • Andrew White

    I hope LG do minimise the physical size of this thing versus the screen dimension as with the G2.
    6″ is just too bloody big for a phone you use against the ear, period. Hands-free no problems.
    Google’s Kitkat O/S, the hardware and LG’s super competitive pricing will appeal to many, in fact will probably make its only real competitor the current Note 3 look dated, heavy and expensive.

      Your crazy, 6 inch screen is beautiful!
