Optimus G Pro: LG’s biggest phone to date

LG had revealed the full specs for its Optimus G Pro smartphone, which will sport a 5.5-inch screen.

Announced just a few days before Mobile World Congress kicks off, LG has specified that the phone will debut in Korea this week, before heading to North America, Japan and other markets in Q2 2013.

"We will continue to expand our position in the premium LTE smartphone segment with our superior display technology and unique user experience."
