LG showed its latest gimmick in Barcelona in the form of their new G Pro 2. It’s a combination of phone and tablet that has a very large display of 5.9-inch. Although a lot bigger than Samsung’s Galaxy Note, the G Pro 2 doesn’t feel in any way uncomfortable in your hand, being very slim. LG G Pro 2 smartphone measures 3.2 in width and 6.2 in length with a thickness of only 0.3 in. It’s available in 3 different colors silver, titan and white. The control keys are on its backside- including volume and power buttons. It comes with a HD resolution and a 5.9 in full display of 1,920×1,080 pixel with a slight decrease in pixel density from 400 to 373ppi, although not very noticeable quality wise. The images on the G Pro 2 look crispy clear and bright.
It features Snapdragon 800 processor of 2.26GHz and an Adeno 330 GPU with an increased battery capacity of 3,200mAh. The rear-facing camera has 13-MP and it lets you shoot in 4K Ultra HD resolution and in slow-motion mode with 120fps. A great camera feature would be the “Magic Focus” which lets you adjust the depth of the focus while shooting. The 2.1Mp frontal camera has its very own LCD flash which apparently work great for low-light environment. Selfie guaranteed in the dark. Other features include 16GB of internal memory and you can add up to 32GB using the microSD card slot. Bluetooth and NFC 4.0 are also included.

The new LG Pro 2 smartphone uses Android 4.4 KitKat and a new feature called KnockCode which basically means that you can turn on the phone and unlock the lock screen with just one gesture. The feature “Content Lock” lets you protect under password some of your important files like videos and photos.
The availability date and the price of the LG Pro G 2 smartphone have not made public yet but it’s expected to cost around $200 in the US (on-contract) and be in stores in the next few months.
