MANILA, Jul. 25, 2013 – The LG Optimus G Pro, which recently won “Best LTE Device” at the global 2013 LTE Awards, has finally arrived in the country.

The launch of this widely-acclaimed smartphone was held at the Ayala Museum to highlight its stunning Full HD capabilities, top-notch hardware, and inspiring user experience.  The key message, “Imagination Begins”, connotes how this device inspires users to become more creative and innovative in what they do.

Hosted by fashion model and TV host Karen Pamintuan, the event included popular personalities eager to spread the word about the premium smartphone.  Renowned celebrity photographer and director Raymund Isaac discussed the product’s Full HD component for producing high-quality photos and videos. Mantosh Malhotra, regional head of Qualcomm Malaysia, Singapore, and Philippines, talked about the device’s world-class hardware, driven from its 1.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor.

Also gracing the event were LG Mobile brand ambassadors Paulo Avelino, Maxene Magalona, and Kiefer Ravena, who shared positive experiences with their own Optimus G Pros.

Powerful hardware

Contained in a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS display, the LG Optimus G Pro consists of a 13-megapixel Full HD rear camera and 2.1-megapixel Full HD front camera.  Photo and video quality are consistently spectacular with rich colors and precise details. 

Armed with a 1.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor, performance is improved by up to 24 percent while consuming minimal power. Users can chat, browse the web, and watch Full HD videos on the device for an extended period of time with its high-capacity 3,140mAh battery.

Inspiring user experience (UX)

Users can be more creative with their photos through VR Panorama, which merges together horizontal or vertical shots to create an entire 360-degree Full HD landscape. Ingenuity can be further stretched with Dual Camera and Dual Recording, which take simultaneous photos and videos with the front and rear cameras, capturing both the subject matter and the user.  Pause and Resume Recording stitches together separate recorded footage into one continuous Full HD video, leaving out what has been paused.

Another distinct feature is Smart Video, which automatically pauses a video when the viewer’s eyes move away from the screen.  Audio Zoom zooms in sound, depleting the surrounding noise.  QRemote transforms the smartphone into an all-in-one remote control, which supports up to nine home electronics or appliances such as TVs, air conditioners, and Blu-Ray players.

Enclosing all of these elements is a refined lightweight body with a well-designed bold pattern and comfortable one-hand grip for pocket portability.

“We are very excited to introduce the LG Optimus G Pro to the country,” Lawrence Kim, vice president of LG Electronics Philippines Mobile Communications division, expressed during the launch.  “With its breakthrough features, powerful performance, and sophisticated design, this model raises the already high-end benchmark of the LG Optimus G series and is set to amaze the Philippine market.”
