LG G Pro 2 will have a 13MP rear camera with OIS Plus and 4K video recording

Back in January, LG confirmed that it would announce a new G Pro 2 smartphone sometime this month. Today, the company revealed more details about the upcoming device via one of its official Korean blogs.

The G Pro 2 will have a 13MP rear camera with enhanced Optical Image Stabilization technology that LG is calling OIS Plus. This should allow us to take shake-free, ultra-clear photos even in dark environments. The rear camera will be capable of recording 4K / Ultra HD video (3840 x 2160 pixels). On the front, the new G Pro will have a 2.1MP camera with "improved performance."

Unfortunately, that’s all that LG is confirming regarding the G Pro 2 for now. Rumor has it that the device would feature a 6-inch 1080p display, Android 4.4 KitKat, LTE-Advanced connectivity, and 3GB of RAM. So it should be quite large, similar to the LG G Flex, but sans the curved design.

Last year, when we reviewed the LG G2 (the company’s first smartphone to feature a 13MP camera with OIS), we were quite impressed by the photos it produced. Thus, we’re expecting even greater things from the OIS Plus camera that’ll debut on the G Pro 2.

It’s not clear if LG will unveil the new G Pro 2 at MWC (24 - 27 February), or during a separate event. Earlier today, Samsung announced its presence at the show in Barcelona, so perhaps LG will also do it soon.

Note: the image you’re seeing above reportedly shows the back of the G Pro 2, but we can’t confirm its authenticity yet.

I hope it will have thin bezels and a slim body, cuz it will make the phone more compact (like the size on the Note 3) even if it has a 6 inch screen.

Looks like another good XLP.. I'm stuck for life using a 6" screen, so it makes me happy when I see more XLP's coming to the market.. It gives me faith that I'll still be able to get one in the future..

I'm gearing on getting the Sony Xperia T2 Ultra when it comes out, I'm just wondering if 6-inchers are pocketable enough or will I end up carrying a bag?

I have 34 waist x 32 length pants.. I ware a medium shirt, and I'm 5'9".. So that should give you a good idea of my shape... My 6" 1520 fits nice in all of my front pants pocket.. I was really surprised at the store how it just slipped in.. And, I can sit down just fine with it in my front pocket.. Once you use the device for a hour you forgot about the size forever, and everything else is too small.. That's how normal it feels.. That should give you a good idea if you can handle it or not.... It's actually easier to make calls with these XLP's because they are longer line traditional phones.. Holding and talking on a XLP is much more natural, and comfortable, than a smaller phone.. The only thing that can get a little annoying is trying to touch things to the far left, or right if you're right handed, of the screen, using one hand... I'll admit that XLP's are definitely two handed devices. Just try one out. If you have average male hands then you won't regret it.. Warning.. Some girls don't like to buy these devices, but they do like to play with all 6"..........
