A leaked soak test screenshot has been published on the internet revealing that AT&T’s much-anticipated Android 4.4.2 update for LG’s former flagship phablet of 2013, the G Pro, is currently in the final phase of development and should start rolling out by way of an over-the-air update very soon. It’s rumored that this upgrade ferries the latest build of KitKat, in addition to several enhancements for the company’s extremely unique user interface.

LG has confirmed that it will be unveiling its new G Pro 2 smartphone at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month. The original 5.5-inch Optimus G Pro made its U.S. debut last May as LG’s answer to large smartphones like the Galaxy Note, and it’s thought the G Pro 2 will be even bigger.
LG’s first high-end phablet, the Optimus G Pro, was announced back in February and has only been available to purchase from independent third-party retailers for the past couple of months, but as from today it’s now also available to buy from AT&T.
The LG Vu II, with its rather odd 4:3 aspect ratio, is one of the most unique Android-powered phablets on the market. And it’s likely to retain that title when the Vu III launches later this year, according to leaked specifications that have surfaced in Asia.
In addition to a 4:3 display, this time with a higher resolution, the Vu III is expected to offer the latest Snapdragon 800 processor, and LTE-Advanced technology.
The Optimus G Pro launched in Korea, back in February, and has steadily expanded to other countries around the world ever since.

AT&T has today announced the LG Optimus G Pro, a 5.5-inch Android-powered smartphone that will sell for $199 when it launches on May 3. The device is designed to give Samsung’s Galaxy Note II a run for its money, with a 1080p display and the latest quad-core Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm.
The latest commercial for the Optimus G Pro starts as a homage to Apple’s iPhone 5 ad, “Cheese!”, which famously advertised iOS 6’s Panorama functionality.
Man, though, does LG one-up Apple in this advertisement, not only showing how the Optimus G Pro can create a 180 degree panorama of a scene… you can actually use the camera to stitch together a full 360 panorama as well, which LG calls a VR Panorama.
LG announced its super-sized Optimus G Pro last week, a 5.5-inch handset that’s coming to do battle with the Samsung Galaxy Note II. The device will be coming to Korea this week, the company has now confirmed, before making its way to North America during Q2 2013.
In addition to its impressive 1080p display, the Optimus G Pro will also be the first smartphone to offer a quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, which is the successor to the popular Snapdragon S4 Pro.
