LG unveils its largest smartphone yet, the 5.5-inch Optimus G Pro
News from Los Angeles Times:

LG’s Optimus G Pro, a massive smartphone with a 5.5-inch screen, will reportedly make its way to North America as early as this spring.

The Optimus G Pro, which has the largest display LG has ever put on a phone, will feature a full HD 1080p resolution. The screen will have a 400-pixels-per-inch density, which is among the highest available on smartphones these days.

The phone will also feature an unusual “duel recording” mode for its cameras, which will have some of the highest resolution sensors to come on a smartphone. The rear camera features a 13-megapixel sensor while the front has 2.1-megapixel resolution.

Both shoot videos in full 1080p HD, and when “dual recording” is activated, users can record using both cameras at the same time. LG says this creates “a unique picture-in-picture experience.”

The upcoming LG phone runs on Android Jelly Bean and uses 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor. The phone has 32-gigabytes of storage that can be doubled using a microSD card.

LG’s newest MWC teaser hints at third Optimus Vu phone and F-series (video)
News from Android Authority:

MWC is rapidly closing in on us and, with Samsung and HTC nearly confirmed as taking the event quite lightly, we need another “hero” to step in and capture the Barcelona spotlight. Could that someone else be LG?

Based on the company’s crafty recent marketing campaign, we’re inclined to say yes. Even if the first three phones confirmed to be on display in Catalonia, the Optimus L3 II, L5 II and L7 II, are far from special.

And that’s because the latest LG teaser, consisting of a short 45-second YouTube video clip, is even more intriguing than the first two. The focus is on four letters of the alphabet, each symbolizing…………… continues on Android Authority

News from IGN:

Just in the nick of time for a grand debut at Mobile World Congress next week, LG announced this morning that the successor to their hit Optimus G — the Optimus G Pro — will roll out to North America sometime during Q2.

Riding the wave of the big smartphone trend this year, the Optimus G Pro boasts a 5.5-inch display, jacked up more than half an inch than its forebear in the screen real estate department and claiming the title…………… continues on IGN

LG Optimus G Pro vs Samsung Galaxy Note 2, phablet battle
News from Phones Review:

The birth of the phablet device back in 2011 has seen a growing craze for larger screen smartphones that offer consumers the perfect device, and can often do away with the need of carrying around both a tablet and a smartphone at the same time. Today we are looking at the new kid on the block the LG Optimus G Pro against the current market leader, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

Since its release in the second half of last year the Galaxy Note 2 has gained a good reputation from reviewers and owners alike, and rightly so as the device has some great features packed into its shell. Now though there is another new handset due to be released in the coming few weeks in the shape of the LG Optimus G Pro, which gives consumers another phablet to choose from.

Display
The Galaxy Note 2 has a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED HD display with 1280 x 720 resolution and 267ppi, while the upcoming Optimus G Pro has a 5.5-inch True HD-IPS + LCD capacitive touchscreen display at 1080 x 1920 resolution and 401ppi.

LG Optimus G Pro is official: 5.5-inch 1080p 2.5D curved glass display, and …
News from Phandroid.com:

The LG Optimus G Pro hasn’t been much of a secret since it was announced for Japan a few weeks ago. Tonight, LG has finally taken the wraps off the device for its homeland of South Korea, unveiling the device unto the world for a likely debut at Mobile World Congress. Pretty much everything here is what we’ve already known of the device: 5.5-inch full HD 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, 3140mAh battery, 1.7GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor and 13MP camera.

But this isn’t simply a rehash of the Japanese version we saw a short time ago. This version not only comes with a larger display (5.5-inches vs Japan’s 5-inch), but aesthetic differences as well. You’ll now notice LG’s now trademark “glitter” pattern along the back of the device ala the Nexus 4/Optimus G, and a curved glass display, giving the phone — what LG is calling — a “2.5D” effect. Sounds a lot like the curved glass on the Nexus 4 which makes us wonder… could a Nexus 5 be in the works from LG? I know, just thinking out loud.

No word on when we can expect this anywhere outside of South Korea, but like the LG Optimus G (sans Pro), expect it in the near…………… continues on Phandroid.com

LG Officially Unveils Optimus G Pro, 5.5″ Curved Glass Display Gives Off “2 …
News from Droid Life:

Just now, LG went ahead and announced the Optimus G Pro for markets other than Japan. Much like the Japanese variant, this device sports a full 5.5″ HD 1080p display, along with a quad-core processor. The device will come in both black and white, while incorporating a curved glass design, giving the phone a 2.5D effect. 

While taking a quick glimpse at the backside of the device, you will notice a glimmering “Digital Cube” effect. Although, overall design wise, this phone looks like a mix of the Galaxy S3′s front and the One X’s back. Looks pretty nice if you ask us.

As far as when we can expect it to hit the States, there is no word from LG. What we do kno…………… continues on Droid Life

LG announces the launch of its new Optimus L Series 2 phones
News from Digital Trends:

At this year’s Mobile World Congress—an annual expose of the latest innovations in the mobile world that will take place later this month—LG announced that it will showcase its new Optimus L Series II, a line of phones they say continue the company’s tradition of sleek design and cutting edge innovation. The phone designs will stay true to the original Optimus L Series, but with noticeable improvements.

The company said that that the four major new design elements it focused on with this series are “seamless layout, laser cut contour, radiant rear design, and smart LED lighting on the home button.”

Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company, said of the new line: “LG has a history of pushing the envelope when it comes to style and Optimus L Series 2 builds on this heritage of design innovation.

LG debuts Optimus G Pro ahead of Mobile World Congress

LG debuts Optimus G Pro ahead of Mobile World Congress
News from CNET Australia:

LG, seemingly unable to keep a secret, has teased a 5.5-inch version of the Optimus G Pro.

The 5.5-inch LG Optimus G Pro will take the fight directly to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
(Credit: LG)

Presumably arriving in late February at Mobile World Congress (MWC), the handset aims to take on the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

A teaser image posted on an LG Facebook page provides an early glimpse of the larger, yet familiar, design. Although the official details for the 5.5-inch handset are light, early rumours suggest that a quad-core 1.7GHz processor, 2GB of RAM and a 13-megapixel camera are in order. For all practical purposes, the new phone looks to be a larger take on the model headed to Japan this year.

As the fourth LG phone outed this week, the LG Optimus G Pro will find a home in South Korea in the coming weeks. It is unclear what other markets might offer the new smartphone. We hope to learn the full details of the new line of Optimus handsets at Mobile World Congress later this month.

LG Nexus 4 vs HTC M7 (HTC One) in irresistible comparison
News from Phones Review:

One of the most-talked about smartphones at the moment is the LG Nexus 4, offering Google’s pure vanilla Android. Despite the fact that it has been difficult to get hold of since its release late last year, that hasn’t been enough to put people off waiting for it and demand continues to be high. Will that demand be so high though when the HTC M7 comes out, rumored for release later this month? We’re taking a comparison look at the LG Nexus 4 vs. HTC M7 (HTC One), two pretty irresistible devices.

If you’re wondering why we have put HTC One in brackets it’s because this phone has also been recently rumored to be launching with the HTC One name instead of the M7, causing a certain amount of confusion. For the rest of this article and for consistency we’ll refer to it as the HTC M7 though.

If you are in the market this year for a smartphone sized at 5-inches or above there certainly looks to be plenty of choice. This includes offerings from LG that are looking to expand their share of the smartphone market in the coming months, and it seems the company may be giving an earlier release to the 5.5-inch LG Optimus G Pro.
