First Look: LG's ultra-big and powerful, G Pro 21:26 /
With its Snapdragon 800 processor, 13-megapixel camera, and 5.9-inch 1080p display, LG's taking the gloves off with the G Pro 2.
Hi, everybody it's Lynn La for CNET and right now we're going to take a closer look at the LG G-Pro 2. This massive high-power device features a sharp 5.9 inch 10 ADP HD screen that is vibrant and bright. The handset also flexes a lot of hardware muscle including a quad-core 2.3 gigahertz Snapdragon 800 processor and an Adreno 330 CPU. Compared to its predecessor the Optimus G Pro, the phone has also been upgraded to a 3.2 ampere hour battery. In addition to running Android 4.4 Kitkat, LG included some new software tools too. Including Knock Code which wakes up and unlocks your phone's home screen in one customized tacking motion. There's also a mini-view which shrinks the display down for easier one handed navigation. As for the camera, you'll get a speedy 13 megapixel shooter and a 2.1 megapixel front facing camera. The former features optical image stabilization, slow motion and 4K video recording and magic focus. Additional features include three gigs of RAM up to 32 gigs of internal storage and expandable memory. Now, LG hasn't mentioned any US pricing or availability information yet, but if we go buy the previous generation we can expect it to be around $200 on contract. Again, I'm Lynn and you've been checking out an unlocked G Pro 2 from LG.
