Exclusive: LG Official Confirms G Pro 2 to Launch in India This Month

Written By:

LG's G Pro 2 hasn't been launched for Indian market, but rumors about its retail release have already started swirling online. There is no doubt that the South Korean giant, under any circumstances, would like to delay the handset for Indian market.

And while earlier reports at a possible launch of LG G Pro 2 in April 2014, GizBot has obtained a word from a senior executive about the release of Samsung Galaxy S5 rival.

Sources close to GizBot have revealed that LG will launch the G Pro 2 in India in April, which is this month. Although we don't have an exact release date to share but one could expect the device to go on sale at the earliest.

The LG G Pro 2 will face stiff competition from the likes of Samsung GalaxyS5 and newly launched HTC One (M8). GizBot expects the G Pro 2 to be priced above Rs. 50,000 price mark.

Just last month, LG electronics had started selling the 5.9-inch handset in some of the Asian countries. The G Pro 2 is now available in number of countries, notably, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Philippine, Vietnam, and Indonesia. The South Korean giant began selling the premium phone in South Korea in February.
