BARCELONA, Spain -- Boasting a quad-core processor, a flash for its front-facing camera, and a bevvy of new software features, the LG G Pro 2 was showcased this week during Mobile World Congress 2014. The device will begin selling in Korea at the end of February, though LG reported that its availability outside the country has not been determined yet.

The G Pro 2 is powered by a robust 2.26GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor and an Adreno 330 GPU. The removable battery's capacity also increased from the Optimus G Pro, jumping from 3,140mAh to 3,200mAh.

Up top is a 3.5mm headphone jack. Because this is an unlocked Korean model, the handset includes a collapsible antenna (seen on the left). If the phone comes to the US, however, don't expect to see this feature.

Along with its super-slim 3.33mm bezel, the phone's equipped with a 5.9-inch Full HD IPS display with a 1,920x1,080-pixel resolution. This is a slight size bump from its 5.5-inch Optimus G Pro predecessor, and when I viewed a sample HD video, images looked crisp, bright, and clear.

Similar to LG's current marquee handset, the G2, the Pro 2 houses its physical control keys (including the power and volume buttons) on its backside. LG has also added a sheen but subtle overlay on the battery door.

As for its camera prowess, its rear-facing 13-megapixel camera will be able to shoot video in 4K Ultra HD resolution as well as slow-motion with 120fps. As previously speculated, optical image stabilization will be integrated in the lens.
