LG's upcoming G Pro 2 smartphone will sport one major improvement for photo takers.

The 13MP camera will be packed with optical image stabilization (OIS), LG said in a Korean blog post on Tuesday. OIS tries to ensure clear and sharp photos by compensating for any shakiness on the part of the picture taker. The feature can be found in other smartphones, including the HTC One, the Nexus 4, and Nokia's Lumia 1020.

The G Pro 2's camera is also capable of burst-mode shooting, which can capture 20 photos in a row, all at a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160P. The camera can produce HD-quality video in slow motion.

LG is expected to introduce the G Pro 2 at Mobile World Congress at the end of February.
