    LG G Pro 2 Becomes Official in All of its 5.9-inch Multimedia Glory


    LG just dumped a beastly new gladiator into the phablet arena last night. It appears they just couldn't wait to reveal it any longer, and officially announced their LG G Pro 2. This 5.9-inch behemoth includes gorgeous aesthetics and amazing hardware.

    Here's a quote from their press release with the full breakdown of features and specs:
    Some of the other advanced image capturing features built into the G Pro 2 are:

    ● 120FPS HD Video Recording and Slow-Motion Editing: Records in 120fps HD and allows editing of video in three different speeds — one-half slow motion, one-fourth slow motion and original
    ● 4K ULTRA HD Recording: Records video footage in ultra-high definition mode for playback on 4K TV sets
    ● Magic Focus: After the shot is taken, the user has the option to select the preferred depth of focus before saving. Users could also press the ‘All in Focus’ icon to set focus on all spots of the picture.
    ● Natural Flash: Offers a much more balanced color temperature and exposure compared to the normal flash, which results in a most natural image just as it is in real life.
    ● Flash for Selfie: Reduces the size of the preview screen and adds a bright white background for more “soft” lighting in self-portrait mode
    ● Burst Shot: Takes up to 20 continuous shots and automatically edits them to create a video of the captured images
    ● Gallery Collage: Allows users to select photos from their gallery to create a collage for easy uploading to favorite social network sites

    In addition to the latest components, the G Pro 2 also boasts a collection of upgraded features that complements today’s mobile lifestyle where much of the information we need is in the palm of our hands or in our back pockets. Some of these new UX features include:

    ● Content Lock: Provides users more security with the ability to lock files, photos, videos and memos with a unique password
    ● Mini View: Enables users to comfortably use the G Pro 2 with one hand by shrinking the display to a size ranging from 3.4 inches to 4.7 inches, depending on the user’s preference
    ● Dual Browser: Divides the expansive screen into two separate browser windows for more convenient surfing

    Availability of G Pro 2 in markets outside of Korea has not yet been determined but attendees to the 2014 Mobile World Congress can experience the G Pro 2 and its features first-hand at LG’s Booth in Hall 3 of Fira Gran Via.

    Key Specifications:
    - Chipset: Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 800 (2.26 GHz Quad-Core)
    - GPU: Qualcomm Technologies’ Adreno™ 330
    - Display: 5.9-inch Full HD IPS (1920 x 1080), Slim Bezel
    - Memory: 3GB DDR3 RAM / 16GB/32GB eMMC ROM / microSD slot
    - Camera: Rear 13.0MP OIS+ / Front 2.1MP
    - Battery: 3,200mAh (removable)
    - Operating System: Android 4.4 KitKat
    - Size: 157.9 x 81.9 x 8.3mm
    - Weight: 172g
    - Network: LTE / HSPA+
    - Connectivity: Bluetooth Smart Ready (BT 4.0) / USB / WiFi (802.11 a/b/g/n/ac) / NFC / SlimPort
    - Colors: Titan, White, Silver
    - Other: Knock Code™, 1W Hi-Fi Sound, Content Lock

    As you can see, not only have they included some phenomenal specs, they have also really upped their game in the camera and multimedia department. LG included some of the most advanced features a smartphone camera has ever possessed! It looks like the Galaxy Note series finally has some very strong competition!

    We don't yet know pricing and availability, but will update you with that info as soon as we find out anything concrete.

    What's up with this feature? Mini View: Enables users to comfortably use the G Pro 2 with one hand by shrinking the display to a size ranging from 3.4 inches to 4.7 inches, depending on the user’s preference

    Is that a cover that goes on over the phone so that you can use the Mini View?

    With a 5.9-inch screen, this phone might give some good competition to the Note3. I wonder when we'll actually see this device release over here?

    sounds/looks like it's a software feature that shrinks the screen real estate

    I really hope LG doesn't become like Samsung and start releasing 20 new devices every year. I would like to personally see how they follow up the G2.

    The battery is big enough, and it is replaceable, so why sweat it, and since it has a 1080p screen and not a QHD screen it should hold up well.
