LG Provides More Details About the Optimus G Pro
LG today offered more information about the Optimus G Pro, a device it first revealed in part last week. Some of the stand-out features of the G Pro include Dual Recording and Virtual Reality Panorama. According to LG, Dual Recording lets users record video with the rear and front cameras at the same time, creating a picture-in-picture video. The VR Panorama mode is similar to the Photo Sphere feature available on the Nexus 4, as it allows users to create 360-degree views of their surroundings. As noted already, the Optimus G Pro has a 5.5-inch full HD display with 1920 x 1080 pixels. The display runs edge-to-edge, and uses curved glass. The G Pro is powered by a 1.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, which is paired with 2GB of RAM. The main camera rates 13 megapixels and the user-facing camera rates 2.1 megapixels. The G Pro is powered by a removable 3,140mAh battery that supports wireless charging. It runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and comes with LG's user interace customizations. The G Pro is launching in Korea first, followed by Japan later this year. LG said the G Pro will be made available in other markets, including the U.S., during the second quarter.
