LG Optimus G Pro becomes official

LG Mobile announced today in Japan their latest flagship phone — the LG Optimus G Pro. This is an update to their Optimus G which was announced back in September 2012.

The Optimum G was the fraternal twin of the Nexus 4 by Google. The Optimus G Pro adds more muscle to the device.

LG Optimus G Pro specs:
5.0-inch full HD 1080p display ” 1920×1080 pixels, 440ppi
Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro 1.7GHz quad-core processor
Adreno 320 Graphics
2GB RAM
32GB of internal storage
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 4.0
13.2MP rear camera, LED flash
2.4MP front-facing camera
NFC
Gps w/ aGPS support
up to 64GB via microSD card
Li-Ion 3000mAh battery
Android 4.1.2 Jellybean

LG is already selling the Nexus 4 in the Philippines (retails for Php22k+ in LG stores) and it will probably be followed by the Optimus G. If not, we hope they’d just jump straight to the Optimus G Pro.

    Would prefer Xperia Z/ZL over this

    • aki says:

      Sony Xperia Z is a premium smartphone…LG Optimus looks cheap despite of higher specs… I would prefer Sony than LG any day…

    • Shela says:

      Sony Z? no comparison my friend G pro obviously very far far better in all spec./feature/hardware
      the only phone can match this is S4!

    • Shela says:

      this design was made only for the Japanese market and still looks sexy /elegant phone.

      what about the international design’s version of this phone?

      Marami pang kakaining bigas ang LG.

      Sa Mobile Bravia Engine 2 and Water and Dust resist pa lang kakainin na ng buo ng Z ang G Pro.

    • hernan says:

      @La LOL!

      Hanggat may nakikita akong Fully touchsceen na phone ay hindi ako maniniwala sa sinasabi mo.
      F.Y.I. di pa marunong gumawa ng kahit anong touchscreen phone ang Sony at ibang competitors ay nakagawa na ng WORLD’S FIRST EVER FULLY CAPACITIVE TOUCHACREEN PHONE ANG LG. ANG LG PRADA
      (2006)
      At hindi rin ang Sony ang unang gumawa ng waterproof na phone See MOTOROLA DEFY (2010)

    • La+ says:

      @hernan

      *Facepalms*

      Dude WTH? Anong ipinaglalaban mo? Bakit pinasok mo pa Motorola? I didn’t even said that Sony was the first company to implement Waterproofing to their devices. Read and Understand dude.

      I give it to LG that they made the worlds first capacitive screen. *wohoo*

    • hernan says:

      @La
      I just reminded u na wag mo maliitin o sabihin na marami pang kakaining bigas ang LG lalo na interms of mobiles world.
      pina alala ko rin sayo na baka di mo alam copycat lng ang sony sa ipinagmamalaki mong. pagkakaroon ng waterproof sa xperia z/zl.
      Baka di mo alam kung ano-ano na na achived ng LG mobile world.
      Compare to Sony mobile world.

      That’s enough for today.

  6. rich says:

    .2GHz isn’t really noticeable. xperia z/zl would probably have a better camera but this has a 3000mAH battery. ano kaya specs ng ilalabas na S4? hmmmm

    • Alpha says:

      LG’S CAMERA IS ONE OF THE BEST!
      I HAVE LG OG’S 13 MP IT BEATS THE 13MP OF MY SONY XPERIA TL.
      LG’S CAMERA IS MORE REALISTIC AND SHARPER LIFE-LIKE COLOR.

    • Ron says:

      LG’s (even some of Samsung’s and Apple’s) phones’ cameras are from Sony. It’s on the processing of the images where they only differ.

      I prefer the ZL over this.

  7. dvancleef says:

    4 months left on my Docomo contract.

    The Xperia Z looks good, the NEC and Fujitsu might be OK. I still can’t take LG seriously as a player with their history of fail at smartphones.

    Probably going with the Sony out of this season’s Docomo offerings.

  8. Demo Video says:

    Wow! What a great phone. Can someone provide a Demo Video for this device. Love to see it.

  9. chinitoguy30 says:

    This new trend of smartphones with 5-inch screens are really making waves. But I find them too big for me. HTC, Sony and LG now have 5-inch flagship smartphones. Samsung will follow in February. I hope they still release phones with 4.3 or 4.5 inch screens but still with top of the line specs

  10. LG Pro. says:

    WHAT A PHONE!
    ONE BEST THING TO BE CONSIDERED IS THE BATTERY!

    LG Pro 3000mAh
    vs Galaxy S4 2600mAh?
    vs. Xperia Z. 2330 mAh?

    EXCEPT MOTOROLA’S BATTERY!

    here are some videos of LG Pro.(JAPAN VERSION)

    LG G Pro-Battery Life
    S4 – Speed
    Sony Z – Masterpiece Design & Tough

    they all have theyre own special features
    but ill still go for Xperia Z, for everyWHERE Used. di manghihinayang mabasa or madumihan
    aanhin mo ang powerful specs kung the OS itself Lags. hahahaha

    • LG Pro. says:

      @ red

      in my opinion mas maganda design ng LG Pro over Xperia Z.
      lalo pa hintayin mo ang INTERNATIONAL VERSION

      ang LG G Pro katulad din ng Original G. maraming Versions at different DESIGNS!

      OS itself Lags.? LOL!
      under sa parehong OS ang XPERIA Z at LG Pro.
      at gaya ng nakikita mo mas POWERFUL ANG Pro.

    • red says:

      @LG Pro

      yup, i guess we have our own taste in design.
      bigay ko na sau ang pagiging powerful phone at the moment, kasi wala pa S4 but in durability. dont talk pls. hahahaha joke hahahaha

    • Eric says:

      @red
      baka hindi mo pa alam na mismong pinaka bagong Sony flagship phone ( Xperia Z) ay minsan ng nilampaso ng Original Optimus G. sa Benchmark tests.
      pinaka kauna unahang phone na gumamit ng
      Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro 1.5GHz quad-core processor ang Optimus G. at copycat lang ang Sony Xperia Z!

      eh kung sa parehong 1.5GHz quad-core AY DI NYA NATALO ANG ORIGINAL G. sa 1.7 GHz quad-core pa kaya ng G Pro.???

      COME ON! BATA LANG MAG ISIP AH!

    • red says:

      @ eric

      those are just benchmark, great optimize is the key to meet great performance like iphone 5(DualCore)vs S3(quadcore) vs LG G(quadcore). Note 2 nga nag lalag pa. so whats the point of quadcore??
      so never na ako titingin sa mga benchmark na yan at hardware. stick ako sa phone for everyday and everywhere use, hindi yung pambahay at office lng. AT TAKOT DALHIN SA BEACH.

      hahahaha!!! i respect LG, peo wag niyong ipagmayabang yang benchmark na yan, but impress ako sa battery life.

    • Eric says:

      @red
      “Note 2 nga nag lalag pa. ”
      naglalag talaga yan kaya
      TAMA KA DYAN kasi kulelat sa benchmark tests
      ang NOTE2
      mas POWERFUL PA NGA ANG S3 EH KASO PANGIT NG DESIGN NG S3!

  13. dinga says:

    seryoso ba mga nagcocomment dito? ang pangit kaya ng itsura, yung design sa likod (kung design ngang matatawag yun), pang low-end na touchscreen phone. mas maganda pa ang itsura ng Optimus G eh.

  14. @red says:

    Speakibg of durability LG IS THE BEST!
    hanggan sa nagyon nagagamit pa at good condition ang almost 5 YEARS OLD LG CHOCOLATE PHONE ko…at binigay ko nlng sa kapatid ko t gamit parin nya.

    also LG is well known for the best Hardware and premium designs of their mobiles. LG PRADA.CHOCOLATES.SECRETS. SHINE. VIEWTY.BLACK LEVEL SERIES. L-SERIES. .OPTIMUS G. SO ON…

    surely lg have some idea & programs for challenge with s4…

    IM SO SUPER EXCITED TO SEE THEM SIDE BY SIDE IN COMPARISON.

    LGruled…………..
    3000mAh Battery !

    sexy elegant phone…………

    LG Optimus PRO:

    Dimensions 139 x 70 x 9.9mm (Still Sexy Phone)

    3000mAh Li-Po Battery( very Impressive)

  22. akinel says:

    Looks very sexy and classy.

    The best feature of this phone is the 2.4MP front facing camera which will make Skype calls, video calls and quick snapshots much more detailed and sharper.

    The 32GB internal storage is also a HUGE advantage plus MicroSd Card Slot up to 64GB.
    while Xperia Z is only 16GB internal.

    Finally this smartphone might set LG back up to its glorious days in the early 2000’s.

    well done LG.

    It’s true na sa patibayan, lalaban ang LG. I had their first Android the GT-540 and a GX-500 dual-sim na ilang beses na nalaglag sa hard concrete floor and everytime it happens, tatlo ang pinupulot ko. The back cover, the battery, and the unit itself. Kabit ko lang ulit and it works na naman. Ang malungkot lang ay nasira ang kanilang reputation dahil sa non-commitment nila sa updates and that brought the ire of some users, which resulted to their poor sales. Many LG owners/users shifted to other brands. With regards to the screen, I’ll pick LG anytime over Sony Xperia, which I think is just pure hype when it comes to quality. The viewing angle of Sony’s screen is something that can make it not worth their price. Here’s a quote from GSMArena regarding the Sony Xperia Z: “Images are rendered beautifully (with Sony’s Mobile Bravia Engine 2 bringing a noticeable boost), though we do have some complaints. The viewing angles could’ve been better and the glass covering teh screen is quite reflective too.” http://www.gsmarena.com/ces_2013_sony_xperia_z_xperia_zl-review-870p2.php

    I just hope that LG would make good with their updates this time at sana they make their International version with a removable battery and a micro-sd slot. Nothing more to ask for with that.
