KOREAN PHONE MAKER LG has announced the LG G Pro 2, sort of, confirming that it will see an official launch in February.

Not one for keeping surprises, LG took to its blog on Monday to reveal that it will unveil the rumoured LG G Pro 2 in February. The firm didn't say specifically, but that likely means that it will unveil the smartphone at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona.

LG hasn't revealed any specific details about the LG G Pro 2, but the online rumour mill has churned out plenty of speculation about the handset. If these rumours are true, the LG G Pro 2 will be the first phone from the company to feature a fingerprint scanner, with speculation claiming last week that the firm will incorporate the Touch ID style technology in its entire 2014 device lineup.

The LG G Pro 2 is also expected to launch with a 5.9in full HD resolution display, 3GB of RAM and a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, which sees the firm looking to challenge the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. It's also likely to have support for LTE Advanced, 32GB of internal storage and arrive running Google's Android 4.4 Kitkat mobile operating system, no doubt skinned in LG's custom user interface.

In its blog post published today, LG also revealed that its original LG G Pro smartphone has surpassed one million sales in South Korea, as has its flagship LG G2 smartphone.

We'll be at MWC next month, so check back then for all the latest. µ
