LG G2 Pro to launch at MWC 2014, not LG G3

LG will launch the LG G2 Pro at MWC 2014 rather than the LG G3 according to Korean rumours.

Instead of launching its next flagship and follow-on to the LG G2, LG will refresh its LG Optimus G Pro phablet at MWC 2014 next month.

There hasn’t been much information about the so called LG G2 Pro yet, but insiders suggest it will launch in March, potentially with a fingerprint scanner.

The latest reports also reveal a hint of what we can expect under the LG G2 Pro’s hood, including a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU and 3GB of RAM.

Apparently it will run Android 4.4 KitKat and offer a 6-inch display up from the 5.2-inch LG G2 and 5.5-inch LG Optimus G Pro.

Despite recent rumours, the LG G2 Pro will also miss out on a 2K QHD resolution and instead offer full 1080p HD resolution.

This does make sense, as we assume one of the LG G3’s key features will be its 2K QHD 1440 x 2560p resolution display when it launches later this year.

The LG G2 was released just before IFA 2013 in September, so it would be rather odd for LG to launch its 2014 flagship so soon.

It seems LG is targeting the LG G2 Pro as a rival for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and will be available in March after an MWC announcement.

As I read this while sitting on the terlet I wonder, why do I need QHD resolution on a 6 inch display....*fart* *fart*...*plop*. It seems 1080 is plenty of *plop* resolution for me...can my eyes actually tell the difference anyway?,....*hnnnnnnnng..PLOP*....oof, that was a big one.

Seriously though, isn't this getting kind of silly? I understand the high res displays on TV, laptop display, maybe even tablet... But why a phone? I have the LG G2 and the display is amazing art 1920x1080.

People said the same thing about 720 phones, the exact same thing, we don't know if we "need" a technology until we have it.
