LG used its G Pro 2 to photograph the northern lights, here are the results
Earlier this week, LG stated that those who use the rear camera of its new G Pro 2 smartphone will be “blown away.” The camera has a 13MP sensor with Optical Image Stabilization Plus - which is an improvement of the OIS technology featured on last year’s LG G2. 4K video recording is also possible with the new handset.

To show us what the G Pro 2’s camera can do, LG organized a trip to Canada, more exactly to Yellowknife - a city famous for offering fantastic views of the northern lights (also known as aurora borealis). LG carried a handful of G Pro 2 smartphones to the Northwest Territories, and used them to photograph the northern lights. You can see the results in the slideshow below.

While we can’t help wondering how Nokia’s Lumia 1020 and its PureView technology would fare in these conditions, we admit that the G Pro 2’s camera did a pretty awesome job. We should add, though, that the photos were shot using tripods - as you'll notice in this video (in Korean):

LG will have the G Pro 2 on display at MWC 2014 next week, and we’re looking forward to checking it out. The new smartphone, which runs Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box, will be launched in South Korea tomorrow, February 21, with an international roll out to follow starting March.
