SEOUL (Reuters) – South Korea’s LG Electronics unveiled a revamped version of its large-screen smartphone G Pro on Thursday, seeking to woo customers ahead of a rival offering from market leader Samsung Electronics later this month.
When Samsung tweeted a teaser for its MWW 2014 Unpacked event this week, most of us believed it was a pretty big hint at the new Touchwiz design coming on the Galaxy S5.
A new screenshot has now appeared that could confirm that we (and the rest of the internet) were on the money.

The handset is also expected to come with a 2.5GHz quad core processor, 3GB of RAM and a 20MP rear camera.
Other hints in the invite suggested Samsung will also be putting more focus on fitness and privacy. Fingerprint scanner ahoy?
Meanwhile we’re expecting to hear more about Samsung’s Tizen very soon – quite possibly as soon as MWC.
