The folks over at LG Electronics have just introduced the spanking new LG G Pro 2, which will be sequel to the LG G Pro. In fact, the LG G Pro happened to pick up the gong of being the Best Smartphone of MWC 2013. We do wonder whether the LG G Pro 2 will win any awards at the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, later this month. Just what will the LG G Pro 2 be able to deliver? Let us find out right after the jump.
For starters, the LG G Pro 2 will arrive with a stunning 5.9” Full HD IPS display alongside an extremely slim bezel of 3.3mm, delivering an industry-leading screen-to-frame ratio of 77.2%. Not only that, it will also feature a thicker, high-power 1W Hi-Fi sound that is touted to be 30% louder compared to its predecessor, offering clearer sound with more powerful bass. What makes the LG G Pro 2 most interesting is the manner in which the powering on and unlocking process works.
Basically, LG engineers have come up with this feature known as Knock Code that would make the unlocking process easier and a whole lot more convenient than ever before. Knock Code would enable owners to power on and unlock their G Pro 2 smartphones in a single and easy step, through the tapping of one’s screens using one of 86,367 “knock” combinations. The intelligent algorithm and advanced hardware combination is a potent one, where you can input the knock pattern on any area of the screen, even when the display is turned off, with anywhere from two to eight taps to choose from.
Other hardware specifications include a quad-core 2.26GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, the Adreno 330 GPU, 3GB RAM, a choice of 16GB or 32GB of internal memory, a microSD memory card slot, and Android 4.4 KitKat right out of the box.
