Ahead of MWC 2014, LG has announced G Pro 2 with a 5.9-inch screen, front-facing flash, slim bezel and Knock Code.
LG Electronics has revealed its G Pro 2 phablet right before the Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona.
The phone has already been rumored and emerged numerous time before the officials have taken the veils off. LG’s G Pro 2 is a high-end profile phone with a bigger display and some new proprietary features. Let’s check out: What does the LG G Pro 2 has to offer?
According to the company, the phone boasts a bigger 5.9-inch full HD IPS display, a 2.26GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor coupled with Adreno 330 GPU, 3GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of internal storage expandable via micro SD card slot, and a 3200 mAh removable battery.
In the camera, it includes a 13-megapixel rear sensor with an LED flash, accompanied by a 2-megapixel front-facing sensor with flash too. Like Sony’s Xperia Z2, its rear-facing camera is also capable to record 4K videos.
Other reported features include a new unlocking mechanism called Knock Code, in which the user can unlock the phone by tapping – in a particular pattern – on the screen. LG included the following connectivity options: 4G LTE, HSPA+, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC.
“Thanks to LG’s intelligent algorithm and advanced hardware, the knock pattern can be entered on any area of the screen – whether the display is turned on or off – using anywhere from two to eight taps,” the company detailed the Knock Code.
The second-gen of G Pro features a SlimPort Micro USB port for charging, which can also be used to connect an external monitor. It measures 157.9 x 81.9 x 8.3mm and weighs 172 grams. In design, the company didn’t give up its approach and placed volume and power buttons on back instead of the right edge.
It runs Android 4.4 KitKat on-board and, unlike Samsung’s Note phablet, doesn’t come with any pen. The phone-cum-tablet will make its way in three colors: black, white and grayed matt finish.
The phone will be available in the Korean market in Late February, and there are no details yet on when the device will hit the US, but sources say it seems likely soon.
