South Korean tech firm LG unwrapped the LG G Pro 2 phablet at the Mobile World Congress 2014 held in February. Since last month, LG had been launching the handset in Asian markets and now, it appears to be time for the Indian consumers to grab it.
As per entrusted Twitter user @Mahesh Telecom, LG G Pro carrying the model number LG D838 will hit the retail stores in India starting from today. The tweet reads, “#LG GPro 2, LG D838, colours available – black & white.(stocks by TODAY evening) MOP Rs. 49900 /- MRP 51500/-“.
