LG Optimus G Pro launched in India for Rs 42,500


LG has launched the Optimus G Pro in India for Rs 42,500. The Optimus G Pro is LG’s latest and greatest phablet that locks its crosshairs on the Samsung Galaxy Note II.

In terms of specs, we get a device that basically offers best in class hardware that can go toe-to-toe with the likes of the HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4. We get a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor clocked at 1.7GHz, 2GB of RAM and an 5.5-inch IPS display that has a 1080p resolution and converts to 400 pixels per inch.

On the back it even has a 13-megapixel camera and a 2.1-megapixel camera in the front. It also packs in a massive 3,140 mAh battery and has 32GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot that supports up to 64GB of storage. Even in terms of dimensions, the device is just 9.4mm thin which is commendable for a device of its class.

LG has packed in a lot of custom software features on the device which include a dual camera recording mode, an Samsung like multi-view windowed multitasking mode, a QTranslate app, and a 360 degree panorama mode. All this is packaged in an Android 4.1.2 shell on top which LG implements its Optimus UI, which we have found to be not very intrusive.

Previously, we reported the phone was slated to be launched at the end of June, but it appears LG missed it just by a few days. Anyway, you can check our first impressions of the Optimus G Pro here.
