LG has come forward with details on their latest Optimus branded smartphone. This one is arriving as the LG Optimus GK and it has specs similar to that of the Optimus G Pro. Well, similar, but on a slightly smaller scale. To begin with, the Optimus GK is sporting a 5-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) IPS display (as opposed to the 5.5-inch display on the Optimus G Pro) and is powered by a quad-core 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 processor.

For now it looks like LG will only be releasing the Optimus GK for those in South Korea. Of course, that isn’t to say they will not switch things up a bit and maybe have this one roll-out globally with a different name and some varying specs at a later date. Putting that thought to the side, lets shift back to the specs for the LG Optimus GK as it stands.

The handset will have 16GB of internal storage along with a microSD card slot (with support for cards up to 64GB in size), 2GB of RAM, 2.1 megapixel front-facing camera and a 13 megapixel rear-facing camera. Other points include a 3100 mAh battery, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC. The Optimus GK will also have 3G HSPA and 4G LTE connectivity.

Those picking up the handset will find the usual array of colors, which is to say black or white, which LG has dubbed as Platinum White and Indigo Black. The handset will weigh in at 156 grams and perhaps most important for some — it will arrive running Jelly Bean. Specifically, LG will be launching the Optimus GK with Android 4.1.2.
