LG G Pro 3 specs, release date release date rumored to be second half of 2015; may use pupil recognition technology


After allegedly leaving production to favor the G-line of its smartphones, LG is now reportedly back to putting out models for the G Pro series.

CNET reported that there are rumors that LG is now hard at work developing the LG G Pro 3, the successor to the G Pro 2, and might release the new phone by the second half of 2015.

CNET’s report specified a possible 6-inch screen capable of a 2k resolution, or 2,560 x 1,440 pixel display. In addition, the G Pro 3 could also have a fingerprint reader as well.

Aside from the fingerprint reader, Mobipicker said that the rumored G Pro 3 could also have a cool pupil recognition technology so that users can unlock the device with nothing more than just a look.

Other possible features for the LG G Pro 3 include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset, 4 GB of RAM, 32GB of onboard storage capacity as well as the capability to expand the storage using microSD cards, the International Business Times said.

IB Times also said that the G Pro 3 will give users access to an impressive 20.7-megapixel rear camera, paired with an equally astounding 8-megapixel front shooter for self-portraits. The new phone in the G Pro series will also reportedly run on Android 5.1 Lollipop, an improvement over its predecessor that carried the Android 4.4 OS, dubbed as “Kitkat.”

Tech Radar said that the device will most likely be released with a price tag of around $790.

LG has also been rumored to be in development of another smartphone, currently dubbed as the G4 Pro. The G4 Pro, according to Digital Trends, is also slated for release late this year. However, the website surmised that the G4 Pro is a separate phone from the G Pro 3, and could be slightly smaller although it could retain many features of the rumored G Pro 3.

LG has not yet released an official statement to confirm or deny the rumored phones.
