LG Announces 5.9-Inch G Pro 2, Comes with 13MP Camera with OIS+
LG Electronics just announced the 5.9-inch G Pro 2, which will be showcased at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014.
The official successor to the 5.5-inch Optimus G Pro, the G Pro 2 is equipped with a 5.9-inch Full-HD (1,920 x 1,080) display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core 2.26GHz processor, 3GB RAM, Android 4.4 KitKat, a 13-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization plus (OIS+), 16 or 32GB internal storage space, a memory card slot, and a removable 3,200mAh battery.
It is the first LG smartphone to sport the company's proprietary OIS+ technology, which adds software anti-shake functionality to the hardware-based feature in the camera module. LG also increased the size and sensitivity of the sensors and lens of the rear and front-facing cameras for better image quality.
The G Pro 2 is capable of 120fps HD video recording and allows you to edit videos in three different speeds - one-half slow motion, one-fourth slow motion and original. It also can record video in ultra-high definition (4K) for playback on 4K TV sets. Following in the footsteps of Apple's True Tone flash on the iPhone 5S, the G Pro 2 offers a much more balanced color temperature and exposure in its natural flash.
There are several new software features that debut on the G Pro 2 such as content lock where users can lock files, photos, videos and memos with a unique password, mini view where the interface is minimized to sizes ranging from 3.4-inch to 4.7-inch for better one-handed operation, and dual browser where two separate browser windows are supported simultaneously.
Price and availability of the G Pro 2 are not confirmed at the time of publication.
