5.9-inch LG G Pro 2 officially unveiled, runs Android 4.4 KitKat
posted by Florin T. / Feb 12, 2014, 8:55 PM
The new LG G Pro 2 sports a 5.9-inch Full HD (1080 x 1920) IPS display, weighs 172 grams, and measures 157.9 × 81.9 × 8.3 mm - and yet the Korean company calls it a smartphone, not a phablet. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat, coming with an “evolved” KnockOn feature called Knock Code. For the moment, the rough automatic translation of the press release announcing the handset doesn’t allow us to fully understand how the new feature works.
The G Pro 2 is LG’s first smartphone to offer a high-power 1W speaker, which should make it a multimedia powerhouse. The handset has a 2.1MP front-facing camera, and a 13MP rear camera with LED flash and OIS plus (an improved version of the Optical Image Stabilization which debuted on the LG G2 last year). The rear camera can record 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) video. Other features: LTE-A connectivity, NFC, quad-core 2.26GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a 3,200 battery (apparently removable).
According to LG, the G Pro 2 will be launched later this month in South Korea, via all major carriers, in three color versions: white, silver, and "titan". Pricing details have not been announced. The new smartphone will also be released around the world, but specific details on this haven’t been unveiled yet. We’ll probably find out more at MWC 2014 in a couple of weeks.

Why is LG releasing it now when the g3 is around the corner and obviously trump this all around, why can't they do it like Sammy, release the g2 during Q2 and then release the pro in Q3 or Q4. Gosh this is such a waste, doubt that it will sell even close to the g2.

So how is this differenct from the G2 except the screen size ? Now everyone has started to flood the market one mobile at a time, and everyone only complains about Samsung...

Did you even bother to read the article at all? "The handset has a 2.1MP front-facing camera, and a 13MP rear camera with LED flash and OIS plus (an improved version of the Optical Image Stabilization which debuted on the LG G2 last year).

just some quick comparison so far in 2014 samsung announced 16 devices Sony = 6 LG = 3 HTC = 1 There is a big difference between providing "choice" to consumers and flooding the market.

So it's basically LG's version of the Galaxy Note 3 (if we ignore the software)?

Btw, I just checked the hands on video of this phone, and it's really getting annoying how LG is going out of ideas, their model is to just wait for samsung to come up with a feature and they will blatantly copy it. No am not a hater, but anyone who is getting butthurt from my comments should check the video, they add the multi window feature and the swipe from the edge of the screen to resize it for one handed operation to their ripping off Samsung's UI list.

LG's UI is literally the biggest blatant copy of Samsung's Nature UI. It's so damn obvious I'm surprised Samsung has never sued. When I saw the multi window and swipe from edge to middle for one hand operation, I literally just stopped watching. Don't get me wrong - it's a great phone/phablet, but the Note 3 has been out since late September/early October, so this phone isn't anything new really.

Then check some other things out before making a statement. For starters the first phone to feature the dual video recording was manufactured by LG, no one gave a damn when Samsung put the same feature in their flagship line of phones. Just an example. Everyone is blabbering about copying but cannot tell one exact thing except the multi window feature.
