The LG Optimus G was among the first Android phones to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro clocked at 1.5GHz and an Adreno 320 GPU. The Nexus 4 from Google and LG is also based on the Optimus G and sports similar specs as the Optimus G.
Even though the Optimus G is not yet widely available, rumors of LG working on the Optimus G successor has been floating around for quite sometime. Today, Blog Of Mobile have managed to get their hands on some leaked pictures that suggest that LG will soon be releasing the Optimus G Pro in Japan.
The Optimus G Pro is more of an iterative upgrade over the Optimus G. It packs in a 5-inch 1080p HD display and a Krait CPU from Qualcomm clocked at 1.7GHz. Other specs of the handset remain more or less the same – 13MP camera, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, 2GB of RAM, 32GB storage space, LTE, GPS with A-GPS, dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, NFC and a bunch of sensors. LG has also beefed up the battery of the Pro to 3000mAh to take into account the increase in screen size and a power hungry processor.
In all probability, LG will announce the handset at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona that is just a month away from now.
