The LG Electronics (LG) flagship smartphone, the Optimus G Pro, will be available in South Africa from 1 September 2013. Compatible with most of 4G LTE networks around the world, the Optimus G Pro is set to impress with its smart and sleek performance.
In response to global trends and consumer needs, the LG Optimus G Pro will support Band 3 on 1800 Mega Hertz and Band 7 on 2 600MHz. This is specific to the South African market.

“Whilst the adoption of LTE networks is still quite new to many consumers, we hope that the extraordinary user-experience they obtain with Optimus G Pro will give them a taste of what’s out there,” says Deon Prinsloo, GM for Mobile and LG Electronics.

In addition to having a network that is significantly faster, the adoption of the LTE for the Optimus G Pro allows users to share a variety of content whilst busy on a call.

With this LTE capability, the online gaming experience is enhanced tremendously due to higher and better quality data speeds. Watching HD movies on demand or videos and downloading material from an e-mail is made easier as there is no lag.

The Optimus G Pro is equipped with the swift Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, which features a 1.7GHz Quad-Core CPU and Adreno 320 GPU. The flagship includes a long-lasting 3,140mAh battery and 2Gb RAM. The Optimus G Pro has a 5,5-inch 1080p Full HD IPS display delivering a resolution of 1 920 x 1 080 pixels at 400ppi.
