Mobile World Congress is coming up very soon, but some manufacturers cannot wait for it to start before announcing new hardware. LG, one of the world's largest manufacturers, has just unveiled the G Pro 2 smartphone.
The device is a successor to the popular LG G Pro that went on sale less than a year earlier. It sports similar design, but significantly upgraded specifications and features. It has a narrow bezel around its 5.9-inch 1080p display, which gives it a relatively compact look and an amazing 77.2 percent screen-to-frame ratio. Inside, there's a quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM, a powerful 13 megapixel camera with improved optical image stabilization and 4K video recording, a 3,200 mAh removable battery as well as support for LTE connectivity.
The phone comes with either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, which can be expanded with a microSD card. It is surprising to see it here as most manufacturers decide to sacrifice it in favour of slimmer and lighter design. Even with a microSD slot, the G Pro 2 is very sleek as it measures only 8.3 mm in thickness.
LG G Pro 2 is running the latest version of Android - the 4.4. KitKat. The software is enhanced with a number of unique features and UX improvements, such as the awesome Knock Code that allows you to unlock the phone by tapping the screen in a certain pattern.
LG did not reveal when its new smartphone will be available on the market, but we expect these details to emerge shortly.
