LG announced the Optimus G Pro successor called LG GX for the Korean market and it is the combination of software features of LG G2 and hardware features of Optimus G Pro.
LG GX General Specs:

- 5.5 inches IPS screen, 1080p resolution

- LTE/HSPA/EV-DO/VoLTE (U+), BT 4.0+HS/USB 2.0 HS/NFC

LG GX should be considers as a mid-range device which supports the high speed LTE bands but there are no other significant feature in the hardware pieces, though. The design is so much like the Optimus G Pro, and LG has moved the buttons from the back to the sides and used the physical Home Button accompanied by two capacitive buttons on its sides.
As mentioned earlier, LG has equipped the LG GX with some software features, which som e of them are:
Smart Day: The glance mode lets you get a hold of time, weather condition, and calendar events by a glance at the lock screen.
Media Time: This feature lets you access your multimedia contents right from the lock screen. It also suggests related applications as soon as the earphone is plugged.
Smart Memo: It offers a smart way to take notes and create a safe backup from your notes.
There are also some other software features, we’ve already seen on the LG G2 including: Q Remote, Knock On, and Guest Mode.
The Korean didn’t specify whether there is going to be an international variant or it is juts limited to their home town market. And if you are wondering about the price, it is expected to be around $820 upon arrival in the South Korea which is expected to be on early January 2014.
