While preparing to launch the U.S. version of the Optimus G Pro, LG has been working on yet another variation of the Optimus G called the Optimus GK. The new smartphone is to all intents and purposes a 5 inch version of the Optimus G Pro. The question is now, is a 5 inch version of the Optimus G Pro more desirable and can it beat the Samsung Galaxy S4?
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is set to launch in South Korea tomorrow despite Samsung admitting to supply issues.
LG Optimus G Pro, a device said to be available in the rest of the world in Q2, is doing well in South Korea where it sold 500,000 units in 40 days.
Available ever since last September through third-party South Korean retailers, Asus and Google’s Nexus 7 seems to have kept its mojo all this time around those parts.
Valentine’s Day is just hours away, so anyone who’s yet to get a present for his significant other is screwed. But wait, because there might be some hope after all… if you’re living in South Korea.
New images uploaded to Google Plus (and then pulled) reveal they may have been taken with the AT&T and South Korean Galaxy S4 version.
While LG did not announce any new mobile device at the recently ended CES 2013 in Las Vegas, USA, the company unveiled a new smartphone in its high-end G family just a few days ago, the Optimus G Pro.
The Nexus 4 was initially not supposed to sell in South Korea, but apparently, LG had a change of mind after customers voice their frustration over the decision.
LG has released Jelly Bean 4.1.2 for the Optimus G in South Korea. No confirmation on when those in other countries and carriers can expect the update.
The Galaxy Note 2 has done very well globally, but what about in their own home country? Both LG and Samsung have confirmed that their latest phablet efforts have managed to sell at least a million devices in South Korea.
