LG isn’t being very secretive when it comes to their latest flagship, the LG G Pro 2. After confirming the device will be coming to Mobile World Congress last week, it looks like LG wants to spill the beans on all the smartphone’s features.
Next on the list of things to announce before the event is the camera. The LG G2 packed an impressive 13MP shooter, but it failed to capture the best pictures and LG wants to improve, adding OIS and 4K video capture.
Both features are impressive, OIS (optical image stabilisation) allows a lot less shaking, fuzziness and noise on a photo. It allows the user to take better pictures, even when their hand may be shaking.
4K video capture is a next generation feature, considering most displays do not show 4K video, rather scaled down to 1080p or “2K”, the term being coined for this year’s displays. In the next few years, we may see widespread 4K adoption, but right now the 4K video capture seems like a lost feature.
We are hoping to see improvements on the software side, LG’s camera software is not incredible and while we do not like Android’s stock camera anymore, we would approve something less flashy.
Other features coming on the LG G Pro 2 include a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32/64GB of internal storage, LTE-advanced, NFC and WiFi ac.
Wireless charging could happen, LG obviously likes to follow the market and Samsung is still working on wireless charging, along with Nokia. We could also see the self-healing back, similar to the one on the LG G Flex.
On the software side, we should see the LG G Pro 2 come running the latest version of Android KitKat 4.2.2, underneath their own Optimus UI, stocked with lots of odd features.
Mobile World Congress will be home to another big event, Samsung’s Unpacked show, where they are likely to reveal the Galaxy S5, their next flagship.
