The LG Optimus G Pro has been launched, bringing a 5-inch full HD display and 1.7GHz quad-core powerhouse to LG's Android portfolio.

The confirmation comes from the NTT DoCoMo network in Japan, listing the new Optimus G Pro along with a range of other new launches on the network.

The LG Optimus G Pro features a 5-inch 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution IPS display, giving you a pixel density of 440ppi, which will be nice and sharp.

Sitting at the core of the phone is a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 APQ80674 quad-core chipset clocked at 1.7GHz, with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, with a microSD card slot for expansion.

Much to our relief, it's said to contain a 3000mAh battery, which you'll need to keep things moving along, but it will at least have a fighting chance of making Android 4.1 last through the day.

The handset measures 139 x 70 x 10mm and weighs 160g and will come in black or white.

In terms of cameras, there's a 13-megapixel sensor for the rear and a 2.4-megapixel sensor for the front.

It runs on the DoCoMo LTE network so you can expect it to feed you super fast data, although at the moment there's no confirmation of availability outside of Japan. It will be arriving in April.
