While carrying the same name as its Japanese counterpart, the South Korean version of the LG Optimus G2 has been confirmed to have a 5.5-inch Full HD display. It’s speculated that the reason LG decided to up the screen size on the South Korean version of the Optimus G Pro is because they wanted a device that can compete directly with the Samsung Galaxy Note II
. With Samsung’s Android devices being the devices consumers opt for, LG wanted to bring a phone into the market that would sway more people into its direction.
This information comes directly from LG, who confirmed the information through its Facebook as well as its social website. Right now they’ve only released a teaser of their device, but they promise to reveal more information in the days to come. While it’s great to know that the device will feature a 5.5-inch Full HD display, we would also love to know where these devices will be released. We’d like to know if this device will be available in multiple countries, or if it’d be only available in South Korea. We’d also like to know which variant of the LG Optimus G Pro we’ll see in the U.S.
