A Mobile World Congress unveiling appears likely for LG's next oversized smartphone
LG this evening officially announced that the successor to the LG (Optimus) G Pro will be unveiled in February, and it'll be call the LG G Pro 2.
The original G Pro — seen in the image above and which launched with the "Optimus" name at Mobile World Congress 2013 — was the Korean manufacturer's first step into the oversized smartphone world. It sported a 5.5-inch IPS display and was the first non-Nexus device to have Photosphere-like capability (called VR Panorama). LG dropped the "Optimus" name from its brand in 2013.
LG has not announced any specs or availability for the G Pro 2. Mobile World Congress takes place Feb. 24-27 in Barcelona, Spain.
