The LG G Pro 2 is shaping up to be the next big thing for LG, with the manufacturer having confirmed that it will launch its next phablet flagship at Mobile World Congress. Now, the company has chosen to reveal a few details on the G Pro 2’s camera, and with the LG G2 sporting one of the best cameras around in the Android market, the G Pro 2’s camera might just take things to a whole new level thanks to a couple of new features.
According to LG, the G Pro 2 will sport a 13-megapixel camera with “OIS Plus” technology. What’s OIS Plus? Well, it’s basically an extension of the Optical Image Stabilization found on the LG G2, and helps in reducing shake in pictures by combining software-based image stabilization with hardware-based stabilization. Furthermore, it will also help capture sharper images in low-light conditions, though whether that brings it up to par with cameras like the HTC One’s, which are geared specifically at low-light photography with their huge pixels, remains to be seen. The front-facing camera will be a 2.1-megapixel unit, and a new camera UX will be replacing the older one, with features like 20-shot burst mode.
In the video shooting department, the G Pro 2’s camera will be capable of capturing video at Ultra HD (4K) resolution, and shooting slow motion video at 1/4x speeds or 25 fps. The 4K recording will be made possible by the Snapdragon 800 CPU that’s expected to power the device, and combined with the improved still imaging capabilities, could make the G Pro 2 a worthwhile flagship at a time when devices like the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the second-generation HTC One will be making their way to market.
