LG G Pro 2 emerges as a 4K video and Snapdragon 800-equipped 5.9-inch smartphone

Korea is soon to be the recipient of the new and advanced LG G Pro 2 which has just been launched by the Seoul-based company. This piece of hardware prides itself on LG’s new 4K video-capable camera and other powerful specs. There’s no word as to when it will be made available in other markets though.

Just like the G2, the LG G Pro 2 also kicks in rear-mounted power and volume buttons. On its front surface, its 5.9-inch full HD IPS display leaves aside a slim bezel of 3.3mm. This allows the device to present a screen-to-frame ratio of 77.2 percent.

The 13MP beast on this new phone has been blessed with OIS+ technology and other advancements. Apart from shooting 4K ultra HD footage, this snapper can record in 120fps as well, for rendering slow-motion videos. While its Magic Focus attribute allows for selective focusing after clicking the shot, its Natural Flash renders much more balanced images than those rendered by normal flash. Selfie enthusiasts can make hay with the device’s 2.1MP front camera.

Other features
Fitted with the quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset, the LG G Pro 2 carries onboard 3GB worth of RAM and Adreno 330 graphics. Android 4.4 KitKat is the preferred OS of this handset, and it has even been blessed with the Knock Code feature which allows you to unlock the homescreen by tapping it in a specific pattern.

On the LG G Pro 2, you can easily choose to lock specific content with unique passwords, whereas its Mini View trait allows you to comfortably use it with one hand by reducing the area occupied by the interface. Lastly, this phone’s dual browser trait provides two separate browser windows for convenient surfing.
