LG Optimus G Pro Finally Lands in the PH
The LG Optimus G Pro joins the high-end phablet battle in the Philippines brandishing its massive 5.5-inch Full HD LCD display (401 pixels per inch). It’s definitely an impressive device as it sports awesome internals, including a 1.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor. We first met this device in February during the Mobile World Congress at Barcelona, Spain. While we’re happy that it’s finally available locally, one can’t help but wonder why it took LG so long to bring this model here.
Anyway, here’s a quick rundown of the specifications.

The good news though is that the LG Optimus G Pro has gotten some software upgrades since we first encountered it in Barcleona. Last April they announced the Value Pack Upgrade. To find out what these software enhancements are, watch this video.
They’re literally going head-to-head with Samsung even on the software, front, hehe. Anyway, the LG Optimus G Pro is already available in various gadget stores nationwide for just Php27,990.
