LG G Pro 2 tipped for MWC debut
Korean press reports 6-inch display, 3GB of RAM and KitKat for next 'Pro' handset
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.

If you don't expect to get updates, you don't get disappointed when they never come.
Personally, I like the G2 the way it is. I don't need it updated.
2. You keep using the word "farce". I do not think it means what you think it means. Get a dictionary and educate yourself for once.
3. Yes, just because Samsung "created this category" (which they didn't, as the Dell Streak 5 was out a whole year before the first Galaxy Note), automatically means "everything else will always be obsolete".
I skipped the Note2, not much of an upgrade, and the note3, waiting for a bigger screen. Might just take a look at this one, if they make an "international" version that isn't locked to at&t, with their locked everything and bloat.
For all we know, this isn't even coming to the us Posted via Android Central App
I would prefer the latter. The Pro 2 to many would be the more obvious choice, but there is very little similarity to the old one (which I currently use).
With all the new features, I'm sorry LG, 6" is just too bloody big. I'll wait to see the G3 or Sony's Z2 or Samsumg's S5 or if HTC can really suprise us with the 'One 2'.
