Last week LG released some press invites to certain members of the Korean press for an event on February 13. We all assumed would be the reveal of the LG G Pro 2 and with February 13 rolling around it looks like we were right. In the early hours of this morning LG revealed all on their multimedia powerhouse the LG G Pro 2.
Scheduled for launch at the Mobile World Congress the LG G Pro 2 is a beast of a phone. First off I’ll give you some information on the most impressive feature that the LG G Pro 2 has to offer and that’s the 13-megapixel camera that’s capable of recording 120 frames per second video as well as 4K ULTRA HD Recording for playback on 4K TV’s the phone itself also comes with some impressive camera features that allow you to get the right image with focus, flash, and filters.
So if that wasn’t impressive enough the 120 FPS recording can be edited and played back at either one-half slow motion, one-fourth slow motion and original.
The device itself comes with a 5.9-inch Full HD IPS display and extra slim bezel of 3.3mm a 2.1MP front camera that comes with a “Flash for Selfie” feature that lights up the screen, a whopping 2.26 GHz Quad-Core Proccessor Snapdragon 800 with 3GB RAM as well as the option of either 16GB or 32GB or on board memory with microSD card support.
The LG G Pro 2 also has a large 3,200 mAh battery that’s completely removable and will come running Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box. It also boast improved sound that’s apparently “30 percent louder than in the G Pro” with clearer sound and much improved bass giving HTC’s BoomSound a run for its money.
Another feature unique to the LG G Pro 2 is the Knock feature that allows users to tap on the phone to wake it up. This time around LG has taken it one step further and added the “Knock Code” that allows people to set a Morse Code-like knock sequence to unlock the device. If locking things down with codes is your think you’ll also be pleased to know that the LG G Pro 2 has a Content Lock feature that allows you to add a code to certain files.
Those of you worried about the large 5.9 inch screen will be pleased to know that LG have solved the one-handed use problem with their new Mini View which shrinks the screen to either 3.4 inches to 4.7 inches depending on your preference.
Finally, for those who like to multi task browser tabs LG’s new Dual Browser feature allows you to devide the large screen into two separate browser windows for more convenient surfing.
According to LG “Availability of G Pro 2 in markets outside of Korea has not yet been determined but attendees to the 2014 Mobile World Congress can experience the G Pro 2 and its features first-hand at LG’s Booth in Hall 3 of Fira Gran Via.” which is a bit of a dampener, but hopefully LG announce a European release sometime soon.
