Central to the smartphone is the 2.26GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and a graphics processor Adreno 330 for superior graphics playback. It has a 5.9″ Full HD IPS screen. With a stunning 5.9-inch Full HD IPS display and extra slim bezel of 3.3mm, the LG G Pro2 offers an industry-leading screen-to-frame ratio of 77.2 percent. A richer, highpower 1W Hi-Fi sound that is 30 percent louder than the G Pro delivers clearer sound with a more powerful bass.

The LG G Pro2 spots a 13 mega pixel rear camera with OIS or image stabiliser and it also has a 2.1 megapixel front camera. It now features 120FPS HD Video Recording and Slow-Motion Editing which records in 120fps  HD and allows editing of video in three different speeds — one-half slow motion, one-fourth slow motion and original. It also supports 4K ULTRA HD Recording for playing back on 4K TVs. In addition, there is Magic Focus which allows users have the option to select the  preferred depth of focus before saving. Lastly, Natural Flash offers more balanced color temperature and exposure for the most natural-looking photos compared to images taken with a normal flash. There are other features like Flash for selfie, Burst Shot and Gallery Collage.

Having a dual browser on a large screen actually maximises the usability of the phone as you can do two tasks concurrently, example, watching a live video stream while checking out the stocks. Thanks to Dual Browser, this feature divides the screen into two seperate browser so you can watch it both in real time then swapping in and out of applications. Another nice feature is Content Lock. Content Lock allows users to lock the files, photos and videos with a unique password. Another nice feature is Mini View, it enable users to use the LG G Pro2 single handely by shrinking the screen from 3.4 to 4.7 inches.

The LG G Pro2 now comes with KNOCKcode™ allows owners to power on and unlock their LG G Pro2 smartphones in one easy step by tapping their screens using one of 86,367 “knock” combinations. Thanks to LG’s intelligent algorithm and advanced hardware, the knock pattern can be entered on any area of the screen — whether the display is turned on or off — using anywhere from two to eight taps

For those who hates integrated battery, the LG G Pro2 comes with a replaceable 3200mAh battery. It can be easily replaced by removing the battery compartment.

The LG G Pro2 will be available at all M1, Singtel, Starhub and other authorized mobile retailers at the end of March this year at a recommended retail price of S$828.
