According to Korean publication ZDNet, who got in touch with LG officials, the G Pro 2 will launch in South Korea by the end of February. Then its global release will continue depending on the market demand for the phablet.
The LG’s marketing studies suggest Asia has the biggest demand for phablets with the consumers preferring 5.5″ devices or above, followed by the USA with a demand for handsets around 5.2″ in size, and then comes Europe, where the customers like 5″ smartphones.
LG will be launching the G Pro 2 in South Korea, with other Asian countries joining shortly after. USA will probably get the phablet in April, while Europe will follow, probably in May.
The LG G Pro had similar release and it took quite a while before it reaches every key markets around the world. Meanwhile the competition launched better products and the G Pro ultimately failed to live up to its great potential. Now, if those reports are to be believed, history might repeat itself.
