After the success of LG G Pro, LG Electronics has unveiled its successor - the LG G Pro 2. Announced ahead of the recently concluded MWC 2014, LG G Pro 2 comes with a unique feature called "Knock code", which unlocks the phone by just tapping the screen with user created knock pattern. The other notable feature is the 4K ultra high definition video recording for playback on 4K TV sets.
LG G Pro 2 boasts a 5.9-inch full HD IPS display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. Running on Android 4.4 KitKat OS, the device is powered by a 2.26GHz Snapdragon 800 Quad-Core processor alongside Adreno 330 GPU and 3GB of DDR3 RAM. There's a choice of 16GB or 32GB of onboard storage with up to 64GB MicroSD expansion support.
The camera spec includes an enhanced 13MP rear snapper with OIS+ (Optical Image Stabilizer Plus) and can record 120fps HD video with an option to edit it in three different speeds — one-half slow motion, one-fourth slow motion and original. Other features include 4K Ultra HD video recording, "Magic Focus" that allows users to select the preferred depth of focus before saving, "Natural Flash" for a most natural image, "Burst Shot" that takes up to 20 continuous shots, and Flash for Selfie. Additionally, it has a 2.1MP front facing camera.
LG G Pro 2 offers some new UX features like, "Content Lock" to lock files, photos and videos with password, "Mini View" which shrinks the display size from 4.7-inches to 3.4-inch for easy one hand operation, and "Dual Browser", which splits the display into two separate browser windows. Other specs include, LTE, 3G-HSPA+, WiFi (802.11 a/b/g/n/ac), Bluetooth 4.0 Smart Ready, NFC, USB, SlimPort, and 3,200mAh battery.
