LG has officially launched the LG G Pro 2 at a Korean event ahead of an MWC 2014 showing.

The LG G Pro 2 is basically a larger-screen version of the LG G2, nearly matching it exactly for hardware and new features.

“Knock Code is an example of LG bringing simpler, more convenient solutions to consumers’ mobile live,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Mobile. “Whereas in the early years of smartphones it was a content to see how many features could be stuffed into the phones, our researchers took a long, hard look at how consumers were really using their devices in their daily lives and included just the most useful UX features. We think customers will agree.”

LG G Pro 2 Features

The main difference between the LG G2 and the G Pro 2 is its larger screen size. The G Pro 2 has a 5.9-inch 1920 x 1080p full HD IPS display and runs on the same 2.26GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 3GB of RAM as the G2.

In the rear is a 13-megapixel OIS camera, partnered with a 2.1-megapixel offering in the front. The rear camera is capable of HD 120fps video recording and 4K Ultra HD as well.

Running on Android 4.4 KitKat, the LG G Pro 2 also benefits from the new UX features introduce with the LG G2 including KnockOn.

Bizarrely, you can also shrink the size of the display to between 3.4- and 4.7-inches in order to make it easier to use with one hand, which sort of defeats the object of having a 5.9-inch display.

Powered by a 3,200mAh battery, the LG G Pro 2 also features 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity.

It will be available in titan, white and silver colour options.

LG G Pro 2 Release Date and Price

LG has said that availability of the LG G Pro 2 outside Korea has “not yet been determined”. It will be shown off properly to a wider audience at MWC 2014 though, so expect to hear more later this month.

G2 Pro also has SD card slot & removable battery which is a major step in the right direction. Hopefully the soon to be released G3 will have those features as well

I currently own the g2. I tried the S4 and note one. Samsung screens are a joke! The LG lcd screens are so much brighter and colors are realistic. Whites are white and blacks are black. I will not buy a cell phone anymore without a lcd screen.
