South Korea-based LG has been in news for quite a while now, mainly due to the heavily speculated LG Optimus G Pro that has been doing a number of rounds on the Internet on a regular basis. Now finally there is some official information on the device.

Per reports, LG has pushed out the first official images of the highly anticipated LG Optimus G Pro on its South Korean page as the new 5.5-inch device will be heading first to the company's native country.

Interestingly, the design of the new smartphone is exactly similar to the one that revealed from a leak last week, and looks more or less like the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. "This new pic is a dead ringer for last week's, and lest you think we're still looking at the five-incher, check out the placement of the phone's proximity sensor, next to the front-facing camera here, but on the opposite site for the five-inch model," Pocketnow writes.

Although there's still no detail regarding the exact specifications of the smartphone, at least the official image release by the company tells a lot about how fans and potential buyers will get to know more about the device in a few days, and, more importantly, when the device will be shipping to other countries as well.

The Optimus G Pro is said to have a curved glass design that the company believes creates a '2.5D effect', although it's pretty uncertain as to what that really means. "The bezels are narrow, but we wouldn't necessarily agree with LG that this will be a phone that will be easy to hold and operate with one hand. The back of the handset apparently retains some 'digital cube pattern' design remnants from the original Optimus G and the Nexus 4," Unwired View.com states.

While everything is still in a rumored state, as far as specifications are concerned, it can be assumed that the LG Optimus G Pro will be featuring a quad-core CPU.

Moreover, if previous leaks are also taken into account, fans are most likely to see Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 clocked at up to 1.7GHz and paired up with Adreno 320 GPU.

The Optimus G Pro is currently expected to hit the store shelves in South Korea later this month. It is, however, still to be seen if the international version of the device will actually make an appearance at the upcoming MWC event in Barcelona.
