The launch of the Optimus G Pro in Japan yesterday caused a smattering of interest so I approached LG Australia for comment on whether this model would be arriving in Australia and how they felt the announcement of this phone would affect the upcoming release of the Optimus G in March. They advised that there will actually be two variants of the Optimus G Pro but we unfortunately won’t be getting either :
The Optimus G Pro is a Japanese model for the Japanese market and is different from the Optimus G Pro that will soon be launched in Korea, despite the same name. The Optimus G Pro is not planned for release in the Australian market.
The Optimus G Pro now joins the likes of other forgotten LG phones such as the Optimus Vu and it’s replacement the Vu 2 as well as the Optimus 4X as phones that will not be seen on our shores, what are your feelings on this?
