The LG Optimus G Pro became official on Japanese carrier NTT Docomo last month, but we've yet to hear anything official about where else the phone might launch. Today brings a rather tantalizing leak, however, suggesting that the G Pro might be headed to LG's native South Korea with a refreshed spec sheet.

According to images obtained by PhoneArena -- one of a spec list, the other of the device itself -- it appears the Optimus G Pro could be headed to Korea with a 5.5-inch 1080p IPS-LCD display and a 3140mAh battery. That's up from a 5.0-inch screen and a 3000mAh battery in the Japanese version. Also listed is microSD card support up to 64GB. Other specs match Docomo's version directly -- there's a a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro inside, along with 2GB of RAM and a 13MP rear camera. And Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is preloaded along with LG's custom UI.

Based on branding seen in the second image, it looks like the Optimus G Pro will launch on Korean carrier LG U+. We'll likely see the G Pro in person at Mobile World Congress at the end of the month, where we might also learn more about international availability.

Taking the wrong page out of Sammy's book, I see, with that retarded physical home button.

i am thinking 5.5 will be the new sizes for smartphones, that way the can put in large batteries, while keeping the phones slim

drewC says:

Ugh...why home button AND a capacitive menu button?

tigeryee says:

home button bugs me. That's why I don't have a S3. I like my S1 better...

survivorevil says:

pretty positive I don't have a big middle home button. I have 4 buttons menu, home, back, search but still looks better than a big ass middle home button. My Nexus 4 only has on screen buttons which I like the best. I saw the Optimus G, and I think that uses on screen buttons too

Droidbert says:

he Probably ment the International version i believe.. :)

dkotoric says:

I like it but I don't know why it has rounded corners unlike the optimus g. I see no reason y someone would get this over a Note 3 as long as the note 3 has a 1080p display

Jaredshoes says:

Jeez LG don't even try to make your phone look any different huh

survivorevil says:
