On the list of things that cost more than the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the LG G Pro 2 now joins the Galaxy Note 3 Neo. Whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing remains to be seen.
LG released the G Pro 2 in South Korea, where it’s available from all the carriers. It’s priced at 999,900 Korean won, which amounts to approximately $932 at the current exchange rates. This is more than what the original Optimus G Pro went for last year (968,000 KRW, or $902), and it’s the same price that the very niche G Flex had when it launched. Needless to say, it’s the most that LG has charged for any of its devices, ever. And yes, it’s more than what the Galaxy Note 3 goes for.
At least the G Pro 2 comes with high-end specs pretty much on par with those of the Note 3, unlike the Note 3 Neo that is lower-end but effectively more expensive than its bigger sibling in Europe.
The G Pro 2 will slowly continue its global rollout next month when it will become available in more parts of Asia. Europe and North America should follow in April. Obviously you shouldn’t expect it to be this expensive in the US, but, without a contract, it definitely won’t be cheap either. We’ll keep you posted.
