Rumours of a successor to the LG Optimus G successor have been floating around almost as long as the LG flagship has been available. Recent rumours suggested that this follow-up device, the LG Optimus G2, might only launch in the fall with the latest version of Android (expected to be Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie). Rumours also pointed to another device, the LG GK, with a 5.5-inch FHD display set to be announced at MWC.

A leaked slide obtained by Engadget paints a slightly different picture. It reveals a device called the Optimus G Pro:
