While the Optimus G Pro has been around for some time in both the US – albeit through just AT&T – and South Korea, it's not yet flown around the world on tour. Unfortunately, LG is still sturggling to figure out how they market their higher-end devices around the world. Thankfully, though this is something that LG are hoping to change and while the G2 is apparently heading for a global launch, the South Korean giant is announcing that they'll be starting with the Optimus G Pro. The device will soon be available in 40 countries in a myriad of regions across the globe. Regions such as Latin America, Europe, the Middle East and the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) will be able to get their hands on the device during Q3 of this year.
We reviewed the G Pro and found it to be a very capable smartphone, it is a shame that it's only available on AT&T but, with this expanding availability, hopefully it'll see a successful rise in sales. If you've forgotten what the G Pro is packing under the hood, then let us remind you:
- 5.5-inch 1920—1080 IPS+ LCD display
- Snapdragon 600 quad-core 1.7GHz processor
- 2GB of RAM
- 32GB internal storage; microSD card slot
- 13MP rear facing camera, 2.1MP front-facing camera
- 3140mAh battery
- Android 4.1.2
It'll be good to see LG roll out their devices across the globe for once, while they enjoy success with their mid-range L Series in Europe, it'd be great to see something like the Optimus G Pro hit shelves. There's no word on pricing or which carriers in the regions will be offering the device but, we're sure that LG have the marketing know-how to make sure that as many people as possible get to enjoy this sizable device around the globe.
If you're in Europe – or somewhere further field than that – let us know in the comments if you'd buy an Optimus G Pro or not!
