A brand new LG G2 Pro smartphone will reportedly make its debut soon at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014, which kicks off next month in Barcelona.

So far, the rumor mill has focused mainly on the LG G3, which is expected to launch as the successor to the current LG G2 flagship. Recent reports have claimed that the LG G3 would launch after the LG G2 Pro, but gave little information regarding the latter.

While not many details have surfaced so far about the LG G2 Pro, some reports did mention that it would come with a 5.5- or 5.9-inch display with a high resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels, feature a fingerprint sensor, and launch sometime around March.

A new report from LG's home country of South Korea, however, now gives us more details regarding the purported specifications of the upcoming LG G2 Pro phablet.

According to the latest report from the Korean Media, the LG G2 Pro will pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor, have 3GB of RAM, and run Android 4.4 KitKat. The report claims that the handset will have a 6-inch display with a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, not a QHD display as it was previously rumored.

If the LG G2 Pro launches with a full HD display, there's a chance that LG is saving the superior QHD panel for its upcoming 2014 flagship, i.e. the much-rumored LG G3. Such a move would make sense, as launching a QHD device just months before unleashing its new flagship could steal the G3's thunder.

While previous rumors hinted that the LG G2 Pro may debut sometime in March, the new Korean report claims that it will actually arrive sometime next month, most likely after an official announcement at this year's MWC.

If rumors so far prove to be accurate, the LG G2 Pro will launch as a high-end phablet that will likely give the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 some serious competition, especially if it comes at a lower price point. With nothing official yet, however, we'll have to file this in the rumor category for now. Stay tuned for more information as soon as it becomes available.
