LG has just announced the arrival of it’s long anticipated successor to the G Pro, the G Pro 2. The handsets specs are too notch and with a huge 5.9 inch screen it’s one of the biggest phablets to date, being matched by the Oppo N1 and, well, in not including the galaxy mega because it’s no competition to the G Pro 2 whatsoever. The Lumia 1520 has a slightly bigger screen at 6 inches but I’m not sure you would really see a difference when using the handsets.
Screen: 5.9 inch IPS 1080p
Processor: 2.26Ghz snapdragon 800
Memory: 16 or 32 GB variants with Micro SD slot for up to 64GB more – 3GB of RAM
Camera: 13mp rear facing camera with OIS plus – capable of recording 2160p @ 30fps, 1080 @ 60fps and 720 @ 120fps.
Dimensions: 157.9 x 81.9 x 8.3
The G Pro 2 is a strong contestant in the mobile industry, with great specs like these and the fact it’s running android 4.4.2 out of the box give it a huge advantage over the phones we’ll be see at MWC.
The downside: The western market won’t be seeing the handset until April because LG thinks phablets are an Asian thing, I kid you not.
The device also comes with LG’s knock code feature, which is like the knock knock feature but the screen is divided into different sections and to unlock the device you have to tap them in the right order, this works even when the screen is off, which I personally think is a great bonus.
So what do you think? Will the G Pro 2 make it and become this years best handset, or should LG have waited to put in some newer technology? Let me know in the comments and I’ll see you all next time.
