LG has launched its  LG Optimus G Pro smartphone in India. The phone is priced at Rs 42,500.
The Optimus G Pro smartphone sports a 5.5-inch full HD display and packs a quad-core Qualcomm mobile processor.

Recent news had ensured that  LG will be showcasing its Optimus G successor, Optimus G Pro at its Tech show event in New Delhi. But the Korean company had more to offer its fans that just a glimpse of the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor powered device.

The company's India managing director Soon H Kwon, revealed that the device will be arriving in India as early as  June or July at approximately Rs 40,000. A rival to the Samsung’s Galaxy Note series, Optimus G Pro sports a full HD 5.5-inch 1080p display with a 400ppi, Snapdragon processor clocked at 1.7 GHz, 2 GB RAM and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system.

  • Backed by a 3140 mAh battery, the device has an impressive 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a front facing 2.1-megapixel camera for video chats and calls.
  • Other goodies on board include 32GB internal memory with 32GB support via a Micro SD card, GPS, Bluetooth, WiFi and NFC.
LG has also rolled out a value pack update for the smartphone which brings smart video feature, dual camera shooting, improved camera quality and more.
