LG has officially unveiled the G Pro 2 phablet earlier today in its home region of South Korea. The phablet borrows design elements from the LG G2 flagship and features the same bezel less design with back placed action keys. Hardware wise, the G Pro 2 phablet is well equipped with a 5.9 inch 1080p IPS display, a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 SoC, a 13MP camera sensor capable of 4K video recording, 16 or 32GB of internal storage (expandable), 3GB of RAM, Android 4.4 KitKat with a ton of new software features and a 3,200 mAh battery.
Speaking about the software side of things, LG has added a bunch of neat accessibility related features like Knock Code which allows users to predetermine a knock/tap sequence on the screen to unlock the display, this is an extension of the KnockOn feature we saw on the LG G2. LG has also added a multi-browser feature which allows users to use two applications at the same time, much like the Multi Window from Samsung’s Galaxy Note smartphones. Then there’s Content Lock which allows users to lock specific apps and files, which is a nifty security feature. Lastly, the Mini View feature which allows users to shrink the display size to aid single handed usage. This is a much needed feature for a smartphone which sports a bigger than usual display.
There’s no word on the pricing or availability at this point, but we expect more details to follow during the MWC event in a couple of weeks. The phablet will be available in Black, White and Titanium colors.
