The LG GPro 2 made more than an enthusiastic appearance at the Mobile World Congress 2014 in Barcelona. Successor to the G Pro, which was one of the more appreciated phablets of last year, the G Pro 2 had big shadows to follow as anticipation around the device was noteworthy! The LG GPro 2 in every possible way is an upgrade to its predecessor and has finally gone on sale in India.

According to the trusted dealer, Manish Khatri of Mahesh Telecom in Mumbai, the device has an MRP of Rs 51,500 while the MOP or the going price would be around Rs 49,990. There had been a few rumours about the impending launch of the device in India and we must admit, we are a bit surprised that LG has decided to price the device so high. Given that the Galaxy Note III, which is certainly the market leader in the phablet world is now priced at about Rs 44,000, you would have expected LG to be closer at that mark than the 50K slab, especially given the specs on the two devices are identical.
On the specs front, the GPro 2 comes with a 5.9 inch display which has a True IPS Full HD panel giving the device a PPI of 373. There is 3 GB of RAM on board and the phone will ship with Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon 800 chip at the heart of it comprising of a Quad Core Krait 400 CPU, each core clocked at 2.26 GHz and an Adreno 330 GPU. The rear camera on the device is a 13 MP shooter with a 2.1 MP front facing camera present too. The battery on the LG GPro 2 is 3200 mAh and the phone is available internationally in a wide gamut of colors including Titan, White, Silver, Burgundy. The device has volume rockers and power buttons just below the camera unit, identical to the LG G2.
However, according to Manish, the device is available only in black and white colors so far in India.
