Korean press reports 6-inch display, 3GB of RAM and KitKat for next 'Pro' handset

Mobile World Congress

It's coming up on twelve months since we first saw the LG (Optimus) G Pro at Mobile World Congress 2013, so it's not too surprising to see reports out of Korea suggesting that a successor is on the cards for this year's MWC. Electronic Times reports that the LG G Pro 2 will feature a Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM and a 6-inch Full HD display, along with support for LTE and LTE-Advanced networks, citing "telecommunications industry" sources. The report also claims the G Pro 2 will ship with Android 4.4 KitKat, possibly making it the first LG phone to come with the new version of Android.

The purported spec sheet would have the new G Pro closely matching Samsung's Galaxy Note 3, which features a 5.7-inch 1080p display, the same Snapdragon 800  and 3GB of RAM. There's no indication as to what software tricks LG might layer atop Android 4.4, but ET's article suggests a renewed focus on multitasking given the device's vast reserves of memory. However things pan out, we'll be on the ground in Barcelona next month to bring you all the latest from LG and its rivals.
