For a while now, we’ve been hearing about LG’s upcoming G Pro 2, which is set to be one formidable smartphone. At least where specs are concerned, at least. Following in the footsteps of the G2 and the Optimus G Pro before it, the G Pro 2 is apparently being some serious performance and specs to the table. Of course, we can’t know for sure exactly what’s inside of the G Pro 2 until LG announce it, but in today’s world of leaks and slip-ups, we have a pretty good idea of LG have in store for us. We’ve heard reports coming from Korea surrounding much better speakers, crazy-thin bezels and more, but now we’re looking at what could be specs for the device coming from the infamous benchmarking site, AnTuTu.
Benchmarks from an LG device with the model number of D837 have come out of China and are believed to be from the G Pro 2 itself. While this is uncertain, the specs do seem to line up with what you’d expect from a device to be released this year. Including a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080, which is less than the 2560 x 1440 we had been hearing about, but a great 1080p panel from LG would be better than an okay Quad-HD panel. After all, pixels are only part of the equation and there’s an argument that at 6-inches in size, 2560 x 1440 wouldn’t even make that much of a difference to a lot of users. We can certainly relate to that, and when you consider common DPI settings of Android, it’s unlikely such displays are to be taken advantage of for some time yet. Other specs include Android 4.4 KitKat and the same Snapdragon 800 that’s inside of the G2 and the Nexus 5, rather than the Snapdragon 805 that was announced towards the end of last year. As well as all that however, is the inclusion of 3GB of RAM, which fires a shot at the Galaxy Note 3 and would definitely make this latest from LG a “Pro” device.
If these specs do belong the G Pro 2, then LG will have an impressive device on their hands, and hopefully it’ll come to the market with some serious marketing budget from LG. If they hope to take on the Galaxy Note 3, they’re going to need to do better than just making a great device and will need to bring the marketing budget to match.
