LG to launch Optimus G Pro later this month to beat the Galaxy S IV to market


We’ve seen some pretty interesting details about LG’s new powerhouse phablet, the Optimus G Pro, that was announced last month. First we heard that LG was going to announce the bigger, 5.5 inch version of the phablet alongside a handful of other devices at MWC, but now we’re hearing rumors that LG might try to get the Optimus G Pro pushed out by the end of the month to try to beat Samsung’s highly anticipated Galaxy S IV to market, and hopefully snatch up a few sales before the S IV potentially steals LG’s thunder.

I think this is a pretty great move on LG’s part. The Optimus G Pro packs some serious horsepower, including a full-HD screen and a bigger battery than the Galaxy Note 2. By launching before Samsung has a chance to sweep the market, it’ll get some early buyers and possibly sway enough people to stick with LG phones over Samsung phones. Can’t wait to see how this one’s going to play out.

    Who cares? This is more of a competitor to the Xperia Z than to the Sgs IV considering the specs, and with LG’s notoriously bad support I’d much rather go for the XZ, and I guess most others would as well.
