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.
