Is it just me, or do South Korean smartphone manufacturers just love the option of having plenty of choice when it comes to the kind of mobile communications device that you use? Take the Samsung Galaxy S series for instance, we have seen more than our fair share of different variants of a particular model, and LG is not absolved from this particular phenomenon, too, if you would allow me to call it just that. The LG Optimus G, for instance, has just received a new variant which specifically targets folks living in South Korea, where this new model is called the LG Optimus GK.
The LG Optimus GK is said to be similar to the one-off Optimus G Pro which arrived in Japan via NTT DoCoMo, where it would see features such as a 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 processor and 2GB RAM being crammed into a more manageable 5” form factor, but fret not, the Full HD display has not been tampered in any way other than the size, where it boasts a pixel density of 440ppi. Other hardware specifications include a 3,100mAh battery, 16GB of internal memory, a microSD memory card slot and a 13-megapixel camera at the back and a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter.
