LG G Pro 2 now available in Asian markets; Knock Code is the most anticipated feature

LG G Pro 2 now available in Asian markets; Knock Code is the most anticipated feature
The LG G Pro 2 is now available in Asian markets including Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, the Philippines, Vietnam and Indonesia. The device features LG's new Knock Code which allows users to set up a personalized "tapping" pattern they can use to unlock or power on an LG G Pro 2 unit. LG found that smartphone users check or unlock their smartphone over 100 times a day. That was the catalyst LG needed to develop Knock Code. Tapping patterns can be in a sequence 2 to 8 taps long, leaving 80,000 possible combinations for users to choose from. In a survey in Korea, over 50% voted Knock Code the most anticipated feature on the LG G Pro 2.

Thanks to the 5.9 inch screen, the LG G Pro 2's display makes up 77% of the front of the phone, which is tops in the industry. And don't forget the thin side bezels, something that LG was able to create for the LG G2. The LG G Pro 2 is also the first phone to feature a 13MP rear camera with OIS+. The rear snapper also supports 4K video playback. The Korean manufacturer says that that the camera also includes 120FPS slow motion playback with adjustable speed.


We can go through the entire list of specs again, for those who could use a good drool at this hour of the morning. The LG G Pro 2 will be equipped with a 5.9 inch display with resolution of 1080 x 1920, and is powered by a quad-core 2.26GHz Snapdragon 800 CPU while the Adreno 330 GPU handles graphics. 3GB of RAM is on board with 16GB or 32GB of native storage available. A microSD slot is included for those who need more storage. The back and front camera weigh in at 13MP and 2.1MP respectively. And while a 3200mAh battery keeps the power on, Android 4.4 is installed out of the box.

LG says that it will release the availability of the LG G Pro 2 in other countries on a local basis. Wherever you live, you might want to keep your fingers crossed.

Lg's horrible cartoon looking UI LOL. And that knock code is a gimmick. You have to set atleast a 8 tap code for a truly secure lock. You are far better and faster with pin code lock.

while I do agree on the knock code part, I don't care that much about how their UI looks like. LG has the LGhome, which gives you the option to download dozens of themes for their UI, plus the fact that you can change the transition effects to your own liking. The one thing that I would love LG to do, is to stop imitating touchwiz, the settings menu, camera app, notification center, dial pad and many more are a complete rip off those on touchwiz.

It's modifiable like pretty much everything about LG:s phones, but you are just a blind fanboy, so of course you wouldn't know that.

I don't care about the knock code really. It isn't secure at all.

It's actually more secure than the fingerprint scanner which has a chance of 1 in 50000 chance compared to the knockcode's 1 in 80,000

"It's actually more secure than the fingerprint scanner which has a chance of 1 in 50000 chance..." Please find me a credible source for that. Considering the fact that no two fingerprints are identical, I think you may have some difficulty.

Fair enough, but I still think it's a gimmick. Not to mention, people can see your knock code & imitate it. Most people have no idea how to imitate your fingerprint except by accident as referred to in the article you posted. Throw in the speed aspect & I say the advantage still goes to Touch ID.

that's true. Security is getting better in our devices it's a good thing!

Can't argue with that.

G pro 2 disappoint me unlike their g pro it was way better than note 2 during that time but this can't even compare to note 3.

13MP OIS Plus camera, 2.26Quad core processor, a better than fingerprint scanner Knock Code, privacy protection features, 1W speaker, 4K video recording, FHD display, 3Gb of RAM, 32GB, 3200mAh battery, and runs Android 4.4 Kitkat. How does this fall behind the Galaxy Note 3?

Note 3 already got kitkat update. S pen and SUPER AMOLED makes the difference my friend

Yeah I do agree the Note 3 is a fabulous device in terms of specs but just want to say that the G Pro 2 is on that level too. Of course considering it was released 5 months later you can say the Note 3 is better in a proper comparison. VERY few people will complain about the G3 though :P

And knock code is gimmicky, slow to unlock. Its not at all better than fingerprint sensor.

I have the G2 sitting in its original box. As soon as I got it, it was months and this new phone was out. Solution? I ent back to an iPhone. LG is bringing products To market too quickly. Let your core base own the latest of your product before you reinvent the wheel. Quite happy with iPhone. Feels like I gave up a toy I couldn't stop Fiddling with for a real phone and superior one at that. You had me LG but I hate greed.

Had a Note 3. Girl Phone.

Note 3 was a great phone imo... I don't like their preference to use that over saturated screen but a great phone. I still prefer LG's UI to touchwiz if talking android but nothing is worse than googles vanilla UI...

One last thing about G2. I have had all the top phones and the G2 is the only phone I cannot sell. Can't give it away. I have the 8.3 GPAD to go with it if anyone is looking for a deal. Both in original boxes.

LG G PRO 2 is way better than the Note 3, Sammy fanboys are feeling the pressure. Lets bring on the Note 4 and let battle commence, only the Pro 2 will still win.
