LG has announced that a smaller, 5-inch version of LG's Optimus G Pro is available in Japan. Japan's Optimus G Pro is obviously not the same device as the 5.5-inch G Pro, which has so far only been available in Korea.
Other than the diminished screen size, it has nearly the same specifications which includes a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, a 13-megapixel camera, 2GB of DDR RAM and 32 GB of storage memory, expandable via microSD memory cards.
The size of the Japanese version is 139x70x9.9 mm, and it rocks a 3,000mAh battery, not that far off from the 3,140mAh variant seen on the original model. The LG Optimus G Pro is available now in Japan through NTT Docomo. A US release date still to be anounced.
