LG Optimus G Pro unveiled with 5in 1080p display

LG Optimus G Pro unveiled with 5in 1080p displayThe big names are enthusiastically throwing their hats in the 5in 1080p arena, with the Sony Xperia Z, HTC J Butterfly and Huawei Ascend D2 all very much a reality.

Next to join the 5in 1080p display party is South Korea’s Lucky Goldstar, with the largely expected (remember the leaked product slide?) LG Optimus G Pro.

The original LG Optimus G (which kinda became the Google Nexus 4) had a 4.7in display (312 PPI).

Stretching to 5in and 1080p, the LG Optimus G Pro has an eye-melting PPI score of 440. Of course, that’s a figure we’re getting quite used to these days, with 5in 1080p being all the rage.

The LG Optimus G Pro is 10mm thick, which is pretty chunky by today’s standards, but it does house a meaty 3,000mAh battery.

Other LG Optimus G Pro specs include a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon Pro processor, 2GB of RAM, Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), and – you guessed it – a 13MP rear camera. What else?

The Verge also describes an interesting camera trick whereby it’s possible to record video with the front and rear cameras simultaneously, yielding a picture-in-picture clip. Sensibly, it’s called Dual Video.

As for the LG Optimus G Pro’s release date, we’re looking at April for Japan. Will it make the journey west? I guess we’ll find out at Mobile World Congress (if not before).

Dual video a feature that I've never seen anyone ask for...
