Mobile World Congress 2015: The LG Optimus G Pro in all its 5.5-inch glory

0:56 /

LG is taking another stab at the "phablet" market with the Optimus G Pro -- a 5.5-inch Jelly Bean handset with a 13-megapixel camera.

Hello, everybody. It's Lynn La from CNET here at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona with the LG Optimus G Pro. The Optimus G Pro has a 5.5-inch screen with a 920x1080 pixel resolution. It's powered by a removable 3.14 ampere-hour battery, and there's an expandable microSD card slot here that can hold up to 32 gigs. It runs on a 1.7 gigahertz quad-core processor and its chip is natively with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. On the back there's a 13-megapixel camera that's capable of shooting 1080p full HD video and there's also an NFC chip inside. On the front there's a 2.1-megapixel camera. The handset will be available in Korea starting in March and there are plans to bring it in North America in the 2nd quarter. Again, I'm Lynn and this has been the LG Optimus G Pro.
