Rumor: LG To Release A New More Powerful G Pro Called The GX?

December 12, 2013 - Written By Justin Diaz


LG has been working hard at competing with Samsung during this last year or so, launching phones that are direct competitors to some of Samsungs best flagship devices. For almost every “Galaxy” there has been a device launched by LG that offers similar features and specs. In this leaked image of an LG Ad from a korean newssite today, LG looks to be releasing something in the future called the LG Gx. The Gx is essentially the G Pro, with the same size display. The ad also states that the Gx will feature 2GB of RAM, come with 32GB of internal storage, sport a 3140 mAH battery. The odd thing with this ad is that its stated the LG Gx carries the same Snapdragon 600 processor as the G Pro but also supports LTE-Advanced, which the Snapdragon 600 processor and the LG G Pro cannot do.

Since as of now the only chip on the market that supports LTE-Advanced is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, we have reason to believe that the Gx will actually come with this chip and not the one that came in the G Pro.

This move from LG is a somewhat obvious one, although to some it might seem a bit redundant to offer a device that is so closely comparable to one they already offer. The reason being is to offer consumers the option to choose from devices with different display sizes. Samsung has been doing this for the past couple years, and LG hasn’t been far behind. If Samsung’s success in giving consumers multiple screen size options is any indication, LG is making a smart decision here.

The Gx doesn’t look to be a direct competitor with Samsung’s newest Note device(The Galaxy Note 3), but it will certainly be nice to have options. Those who are accustomed to the bigger screens and have been thinking about picking up an LG G Pro may want to wait until further developments on this LG Gx come to light, as you’ll possibly be able to grab a device with a larger screen size. For those of you out there that already own an LG G Pro, would you rather have waited for a device like this? Hit us up in the comments.
