As suspected, LG has made official its 5.5-inch Optimus G Pro and Optimus L Series II for international markets just days prior to Mobile World Congress.

The Optimus G Pro has only been made official for the company’s Korean home market, and though it looks very much like a Samsung Galaxy Note II we can’t help but get behind the device’s specs. A 5.5-inch 1080p IPS display, 2GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, a 1.7Ghz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro SoC and a 3,140mAh battery is nothing to sneeze at.

As for the Optimus L Series II, it comes in three forms: the L7 II, L5 II and L3 II. Confused yet?  The L7 builds upon its predecessor’s design-focused marketing, but adds some decent specs to this year’s model. It has a 4.3-inch 800×480 pixel IPS display, a dual-core 1Ghz Snapdragon processor, 768MB RAM, 4GB storage with microSD expansion, a huge 2460mAh battery, and an 8MP back camera. All huge improvements over the underpowered 2012 model.

We don’t know too much about the L5 II and L3 II, but they should exist on a sliding scale in terms of specs and price.

Look for more as we approach MWC on February 25th.

    Loving the specs BUT i really doubt we will see it coming to Canada. Remember, we never get devices like there here.

      My cousin in India is rocking this phone as we speak.

  • meh

    Specs looks great, but have to see the real thing. Always been skeptical with LG personally due to previous experience of poor quality.

    Do this come with a pen too?

  • GGG

    Another awesome phone that is not coming to Canada.

    • maqbar

      That hardly matters these days as any phone is easy to buy online.

    Common, we don’t need so many same kind of phones running the same OS and doing the same thing. Just get something different like an iPhone or windows phone. There is just one or two of them available.

    My cousin in Korea is rocking this phone as we speak.

    I just want to see these specs, in a 4.3″ phone… HOW HARD CAN THAT BE!! If anyone would like to explain to me the reason why there are no (good) android phones offered in a size that makes one handed usability possible, then please, explain.

    Even heard the new htc m5 is only going to have a 5mp cam…. s**t’n bricks i swear..

    Might get an iphone and hate my life just to show to android handset makers my frustration with them.

      How long will it be before people stop thinking megapixels matter that much?

      I agree on the size, 4.8 inches is pushing it on the S3

  • kirilmatt

    Looks like an awesome phone! Hopefully it’ll have a micro SD card slot as well!

    Whoever gets this phone and then hates on Apple will be the BIGGEST hypocrite in the history of telecommunication.

    Copying the Galaxy Note II’s design almost to a near identical level is a sham. However, critiquing Apple for stagnating progress and innovation whilst at the same time supporting this stolen idea is an even bigger sham.

    You know who u are.

    • Rainman

      Yeah, I was thinking along those lines as well. Wasn’t that long ago that Samsung was getting accused of copying others, particularly Apple. Now, it seems like a number of their features are showing up in the others (as well as in generic Android OS).

    Snapdragon 600 !
