LG today introduced the G Pro 2, a successor to last year's phablet. The G Pro 2 starts with a 5.9-inch 1080p HD display that is surrounded by a minimal amount of bezel. LG's KnockOn feature has evolved into Knock Code, which can be used to unlock the screen, as well as power the device on, thanks to tens of thousands of different knock codes. The G Pro 2 has a 13-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization. The camera can record video at 120 frames per second for slow motion, or in 4K ultra HD. The camera also includes Magic Focus, which lets users adjust the depth of field after the image is taken, a more natural flash for better skin tones, and a "flash" for self portraits that works by reducing the viewfinder on the screen and filling in the rest of the space with white light. Other software features include Content Lock for securing files, photos, videos and memos; Mini View, which shrinks the display to a smaller size on the screen for easier one-handed use; and Dual Browser, which lets users interact with two open browser windows on the screen at the same time. The LG G Pro 2 is powered by a 2.26GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 3GB of RAM and it ships with either 16 or 32GB of internal storage. It supports a range of LTE networks, in addition to Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, and NFC. It has a 3,200mAh battery and a 1 watt amplifier powering the speaker for louder ringtones and speakerphone performance. Pricing and availability have not net been determined.
