The Optimus G Pro is LG’s answer to the Samsung Galaxy Note II and it will be heading to North America and Japan after the South Korean launch. Not immediately – those launches are scheduled for some time in Q2, while the Korean launch will be later this month. Reports pointed to an April launch for Japan.

The LG Optimus G Pro offers the same screen size as the Note II but with a 401ppi pixel density (compared to 267ppi). The bezels are quite thin and the phone is narrower than the Note. The Optimus G Pro will be one of the first devices powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 600 chipset (four of the revamped Krait 300 cores and Adreno 320).

The Optimus G Pro has a 13MP main camera and 2.1MP front-facing camera and they can record simultaneously, plus there’s object tracking for improved focusing.

Unfortunately, LG’s press release left out details like price and carriers for the Optimus G Pro launch, so we’ll have to wait for more info on that one – and we might get it at the MWC.
