KOREAN PHONE MAKER LG announced the 5in Optimus G Pro smartphone today, which will be making its debut in Japan.

Set to arrive on Japanese operator NTT Docomo in April, the LG Optimus G Pro smartphone sees the firm looking to challenge Samsung's Galaxy Note 2. The handset features a 5in 1920x1080 touchscreen along with a 1.7GHz quad-core processor and Google's Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean mobile operating system.

Looking to attract those after a top-end smartphone, the LG Optimus G Pro also has 2GB of RAM, a 13MP rear-facing camera with HD 1080p video, a front-facing camera, 32GB of internal storage and a 3,000mAh battery.

LG probably has pretty high hopes for the Optimus G Pro, as it was revealed yesterday that the firm might have overtaken Apple in the US mobile phone market. The handset's predecessor - the original LG Optimus G - has sold over one million units.

It's still unclear whether the handset will be released in the UK, and LG has yet to respond to our request for comment. We hope to get more information at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month. µ
