Mobile World Congress is now the host of the newly LG G Pro 2, which was first unveil at the beginning of February in Seoul, Korea. The fresh flagship promises to deliver great enhancements, as it is the follower of the Optimus G Pro, coming with a better processor and more camera performance. The smartphone will be put for sales in Korea starting this March, but for now, we don’t know exactly if the device will leave the Asian country.
The G Pro 2 is thin and massive with a 6.2-inch display, coming in colors like silver, titan and white, and with a premium feel at the back, due to its overlay on the battery door.
The 6.2-inch screen incorporates a full HD IPS 5.9-inch display with 1.920×1.080 pixels, with a decrease in pixel density from 400ppi to 373ppi. But for an untrained eye, this is dust in the wind, as the quality when watching a video is still a high-end one.
As for what stands under the hood, the LG G Pro 2 is really worthy of some professional features, like the name iterates. We are talking about a powerful 2.26GHz quad-core processor Snapdragon 800 and an Adreno 330 GPU, sporting 3GB of RAM and 16 or 32GB of storage inside. The monster phone is powered by a strong 3,200mAh, capable of handling hours of continuous usage, download and heavy gaming.
On the other hand, we might get some shivers when rearing the phone to look at the amazing 13-megapixel camera with a 4K Ultra HD resolution and optical image stabilization in the lens. The camera is purely amazing with its “Magic Focus”, as it allows users adjust “the depth of focus of an image, and the oft-included burst shot mode,”.
As for the other phone`s features, the Pro 2 runs on the wonderful Android 4.4 KitKat, beautifully enhanced with the KnockCode function which can do more than the previous KnockOn mode. The feature simply lets you wake the phone by taping the screen twice as well as unlock it at the same time. This is possible since the display is divided in four quadrants that allow you to tap the combination with the zones to accomplish the aforementioned features.
More than that, now you have the opportunity of keeping your files, photos or other private documents safe and away from the curious eyes with the help of the “Content Lock”, which will provide you with a password security choice.
Perhaps this is not the high-end LG G2, but the Pro 2 is an outstanding device with extraordinary performance. As for the price, LG hasn’t let word yet, but we should expect upcoming news when the phone will begin rolling-out in Korea.
