LG is known for furnishing beautiful IPS LCD displays and the LG G Pro 2 is expected to be no exception with its extra large 5.9 Inch Full HD IPS LCD panel surrounded with only 3.3 mm bezel. LG also stated this phone to provide 1W HiFi sound which will account for a 30 percent boost in volume and quality over the predecessor.

The LG G Pro 2 is powered by 2.26 GHz Quad Core Snapdragon 800 chipset which we have seen in all premium range smartphones assisted by Adreno 330 GPU, 3 GB RAM and 16 GB/ 32 GB internal storage. The Snapdragon 800 on LG G2 was extremely snappy, with no sign of being offset by the cluttered software.

The primary camera has a 13 MP sensor and comes with OIS+. OIS+ provides image stabilization using the combined power of hardware and software. Both the rear camera and the front 2.1 MP camera have large and more sensitive sensors for better low light performance.

The rear camera is capable of 4K video recording and a frame rate of 120 fps (HD).Other camera features include Magic Focus, Natural Flash, Flash for front camera, Burst Shot, and Gallery Collage. The rear key is also present in LG G Pro 2 as well and looks like LG won’t let go of it so easy.

The battery capacity is 3200 mAh and connectivity features include Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, NFC, and SlimPort. Operating system is new and fancy Android KitKat.  LG also hinted about a less cluttered UI this time (something criticized about LG G2) while describing Knock Code, a feature which makes unlocking the phone easier.

“Knock Code is an example of LG bringing simpler, more convenient solutions to consumers’ mobile lives. Whereas in the early years of smartphones it was a contest to see how many features could be stuffed into the phones, our researchers took a long, hard look at how consumers were really using their devices in their daily lives and included just the most useful UX features. We think customers will agree.”

There is no word on the price and availability yet, but we will get to see the device at MWC 2014 starting later this month and are quite excited about the next flagship phone from LG. It will be available in Red, White and Titan color variants.
