There is no denying that 5-inch quad-core phones are THE item to have in any manufacturers line up. From HTC to ZTE each company has something for the larger display lover out there, and that now includes LG.

The LG Optimus G Pro is the Korean giants first 5-inch 1080 phone, and takes advantage of the the company’s new 440ppi HD displays to great effect, but with so many similar hand-sets flooding the market is the LG really up to it?

A quick look at the specs certainly suggest so, as the Optimus G Pro packs a 1.7Ghz quad-core Snapdragon Pro CPU, 2GB RAM, a large 3000mAh battery, 13 mega-pixel main camera and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to boot.

Speaking of the OS, LG have added what they call Slide Apps to the system. This basically allows you to run small widget type apps, such as a calculator or calendar for example, over any app. What this means is you can be browsing for the latest gadgets in the browser while using a calculator to work out which you can afford to buy without switching from app to app. Pretty awesome!

Another nice tweak the LG has to offer is Dual Video, which is basically a way of  capturing video from both cameras simultaneously.

The LG Optimus G Pro has just been unveiled in Japan, but the rest of the world can probably expect to see it at next months MWC. What do you think, interested in the Optimus G Pro or not?
