LG Electronics Korea finally confirms its 2014 flagship, announcing LG G Pro 2 to take the global stage at the Mobile World Congress with high hopes of snagging the Best Smartphone twice in a row.
Aiming to achieve such feat can’t be a far fetch, with their focused design on its user experience with its new hardware. Striking that balance can be a crucial key, much like knowing what matters most for their users than just packing the phone with features they won’t probably use much.
User experience begins with turning on the device, and LG got that covered with their new Knock Code, which turns the screen on and unlock it simultaneously with a combo tap on the device. That’s pretty intuitive, giving the power/sleep/wake button some slack.
Next will be looking at the screen, which they definitely got covered as well with its 5.9-inch full HD IPS display at 1920 x 1080 resolution. The extra slim bezel at 3.3mm gives larger real state for watching videos. On the contrary, they also makes it easy for a single-hand operation via its Mini View feature, which allows you to adjust your display size according to your preference from 3.4 inches to 4.7 inches.
Besides messaging and calling, one aspect that users are fond of using is their camera. LG G Pro 2 got a 13MP primary shooter equipped with an Optical Image Stabilizer Plus (OIS+), which assists you perfectly shooting pictures even with shaky hands. The reports about their imaging technology is quite true, having 20 photos taken on Burst Shots mode, Slow-Motion with a half or one-fourth speed on video editing, 120FPS HD, and 4K Ultra HD video recording.
Of course, surfing the net gets in the picture as well. What LG puts in here is the Dual Browser, which translates to two separate web browser running side-by-side. Adding the Gallery Collage also makes it easy and beautifully share your photos to your social network accounts. But, if you want to keep your multimedia to be private, then they also got a native Content Lock feature, too.
Now, underneath LG G Pro 2 is where all those features finds its way to life. At the heart is the Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 beating at 2.2GHz, paired with a Adreno 330 GPU. Memory comes in 3GB of RAM, with built-in storage of either 16GB or 32GB. Power capacity is rated at 3,200 mAh. Mass weight measures at 172 grams, with a framework dimension of 157.9 x 81.9 x 8.3 mm.
Connectivity wise, it already has LTE, HSPA+, BT 4.0, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, NFC, SlimPort, and USB. It comes in color White, Silver and Titan. LG G Pro 2 has Android 4.4 KitKat pre-installed. Global roll-out and pricing is yet to be announced, though it’ll have hands-on exhibit this coming MWC 2014 in Barcelona.
