LG G Pro 2 is Now Official: Snapdragon 800, 5.9-inch 1080p Display, 4K Video Recording, and More

lg g pro 2

This evening, LG went ahead and unveiled its new tablet-phone hybrid, the G Pro 2. The phone is the follow-up to last year’s G Pro, which was largely thought of as a solid competitor to Samsung’s Galaxy Note line. With the 2, we’re looking at upgraded specs in all the right places, along with an insane 77.2 percent screen-to-frame ratio. 

From a specs perspective, the G Pro 2 has a 5.9-inch 1080p display, Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB RAM, 13MP camera with OIS+, 3200mAh removable battery, micro SD slot for expandable storage, works on LTE networks, and is all wrapped in a package that is just 8.3mm thick. As you can tell, LG tried to put the world into this phone in terms of hardware. And again, the display is as edge-to-edge and top-to-bottom as you can get. There are on-screen navigation buttons to help make this an all-display type of device with bezels that are just 3.3mm thick.

On the software side, LG included something called Knock Code that allows you to perform all sorts of actions with customized knocking patterns. Outside of that, LG claims that it is going back to the basics with this phone, something we saw Motorola do last year. They have included “just the most useful UX features,” rather try to stuff as many features into the phone as they did with all of their phones from last year.

LG is also bragging up the 13MP camera on the G Pro 2 since it features OIS+. The sensor has increased in both size and sensitivity, shoots 4K video, and takes advantage of special camera software like Natural Flash, Magic Focus, and Burst Shot.

The G Pro 2 has been announced for Korea only at this time. It will undoubtedly arrive in other markets, but LG has nothing to announce at this time.

Successor to “Best Smartphone of MWC 2013” to Make Global Debut at MWC 2014

SEOUL, Feb. 13, 2014 ― Today LG Electronics (LG) introduced the LG G Pro 2, its follow-up to the award-winning G Pro, to the Korean public. Much like last year’s G Pro, which was recognized as the Best Smartphone of MWC 2013, the G Pro 2 comes equipped with a state-of-the-art display and new UX features to take user convenience to the next level.
With a stunning 5.9-inch Full HD IPS display and extra slim bezel of 3.3mm, the G Pro 2 offers an industry-leading screen-to-frame ratio of 77.2 percent. A thicker, high-power 1W Hi-Fi sound that’s 30 percent louder than in the G Pro delivers clearer sound with more powerful bass. And to simplify the powering on and unlocking process, LG engineers developed a completely unique feature called Knock Code™ which makes unlocking and using the G Pro 2 easier and more convenient than ever before.

“Knock Code is an example of LG bringing simpler, more convenient solutions to consumers’ mobile lives,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “Whereas in the early years of smartphones it was a contest 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.”

An evolution of the popular KnockON feature that was first unveiled last year in the LG G2, Knock Code allows owners to power on and unlock their G Pro 2 smartphones in one easy step by tapping their screens using one of 86,367 “knock” combinations. Thanks to LG’s intelligent algorithm and advanced hardware, the knock pattern can be entered on any area of the screen ― whether the display is turned on or off ― using anywhere from two to eight taps.

The G Pro 2 is the first LG smartphone to benefit from an enhanced 13MP camera with OIS+ (Optical Image Stabilizer Plus) and advanced functions ideal for creating sharing content. LG’s proprietary OIS+ technology adds software anti-shake functionality to the acclaimed hardware-based feature already built into the slim camera module for the best photos and videos possible when in motion or in low light situations. What’s more, the sensors and lens of the rear and front camera on the G Pro 2 have increased in both size and sensitivity, for images that rival many standalone point-and-shoot cameras. Some of the other advanced image capturing features built into the G Pro 2 are:

  • 120FPS HD Video Recording and Slow-Motion Editing: Records in 120fps HD and allows editing of video in three different speeds ― one-half slow motion, one-fourth slow motion and original
  • 4K ULTRA HD Recording: Records video footage in ultra-high definition mode for playback on 4K TV sets
  • Magic Focus: After the shot is taken, user have the option to select the preferred depth of focus before saving. Users can also press the all-in-focus icon to make every object in the frame look their sharpest
  • Natural Flash: Offers more balanced color temperature and exposure for the most natural-looking photos compared to images taken with a normal flash
  • Flash for Selfie: Reduces the size of the preview screen and adds a bright white background for more “soft” lighting in self-portrait mode
  • Burst Shot: Takes up to 20 continuous shots and automatically edits them to create a video of the captured images
  • Gallery Collage: Allows users to select photos from their gallery to create a collage for easy uploading to favorite social network sites

In addition to the latest components, the G Pro 2 also boasts a collection of upgraded features that complements today’s mobile lifestyle where much of the information we need is in the palm of our hands or in our back pockets. Some of these new UX features include:

  • Content Lock: Provides users more security with the ability to lock files, photos, videos and memos with a unique password
  • Mini View: Enables users to comfortably use the G Pro 2 with one hand by shrinking the display to a size ranging from 3.4 inches to 4.7 inches, depending on the user’s preference
  • Dual Browser: Divides the expansive screen into two separate browser windows for more convenient surfing

Availability of G Pro 2 in markets outside of Korea has not yet been determined but attendees to the 2014 Mobile World Congress can experience the G Pro 2 and its features first-hand at LG’s Booth in Hall 3 of Fira Gran Via.

  • SIZE Matters

    5.9, too large – how I wish its 5.2 to 5.5 inch

  • chris_johns

    this…is an interesting device to say the least…im honestly loving LGs direction and if i wasnt going with moto id go with an LG phone…they seem to get it…maybe my next android in a year or so after my love affair with my moto x has run its course if i dont like motos direction under lenovo(meh) i might look their direction

  • Mike

    Interesting. Hope this comes to the US. Also interested in what the LG G3 will be like when it gets released.

  • WK

    are we using this “percent screen-to-frame ratio” thing now? because i like that.

  • 213ninja

    sounds like a note3 without an S-pen to me……

    • creed

      And no touchwiz. :0

  • Jordan

    I really would want to love this phone, however I think it is just too big for me. Don’t get me wrong, I love big screens, but I have smaller hands and its hard enough to text with one hand with my Galaxy S4.

    • SA_NYC

      Yeah I’m thinking the same…not sure I could possibly go bigger than my Note 2, and this is about a centimeter taller, plus a tiny bit wider. But this looks interesting enough to at least check out in person.

      • hkklife

        Get a Note 3. Smaller than the G Pro 2, bihger and better screen than Note 2, 2x the storage, longer battery life and better build quality in a thinner, more narrow formfactor. And USB 3.0 too!

        • SA_NYC

          Your suggestion makes sense. The only issue I have with the 3 is a rather pedantic one: I got my 2 only a couple of months before the 3 came out. (I made the purchase out of necessity, so wasn’t able to optimize for release dates.) I looked at the 3 but just couldn’t bring myself to spend the $750 (I buy all my phones outright, to maintain my unlimited data) for a rather incremental upgrade. Makes no sense, I know, that I would now be considering this G2 Pro. I guess it’s psychology.

    • fauxshizzl

      I thought I saw something about a possible “mini” version similar to what Samsung has done with some of its line.

  • Ballerado

    This might be the phone to make me part with my beloved Nexus 4. I just don’t know if I will be able to afford this baby off contract. Hmmm…

  • DimStyle

    Between the G2 and the Nexus, LG has really started to come around. I took a shot on the G2 from my HTC One and I have been very happy. This looks to be a great addition to the LG line minus the Snapdragon 805. Samsung, HTC, LG whichever you prefer, this just ups the game to all the other manufacturers which will translate to better products for all of us!

  • Tony Byatt

    LG is definitely leading the way in thinnest all around bezels…

    Nice…Moar Screen…

  • FAL_Fan

    Eh, I’ll be waiting for the Note 4. Honestly the pro 2 is just an LG version of the note 3…specs wise people! Not talking software and hardware set up!

    • Force Meow

      what’s REALLY needed is the ability to dual screen ANY of the programs not just certain ones prescribed by Samsung or LG

      • HarvesterX

        XDA has mods for this. Granted they are for the G2, but sure this will get the same love.

  • teejaycard

    Everything is going to be about ratio’s now, yeah!

  • gpaine

    Minimal UX features on 4.4? I wonder if this means the G2’s eventual software update to 4.4 will follow that trend. That would be spectacular.

  • Intellectua1

    Wow I’m impressed with the specs on this phone and its not a Samsung phone.. If Samsung doesn’t bring the heat on the S5 (which I know they will) I may go for this.. The fact that it has no physical buttons on the front really makes me like it.. I still hate the button layout on the back though

    • jakemyster84

      You would learn to love the button layout. I got the G2 and was not crazy about the buttons being on the back at first, but now I love them. Granted if it didn’t have the knock on feature then I would hate the buttons on the back. But in combo I wouldn’t want to go back to having the buttons on the side.

      • duke69111

        I now struggle to use a phone or tablet without knock on. I keep tapping and nothing happens.

        • SplashMTN

          I do the same thing on my Nexus 7 all the time now.

      • Intellectua1

        Hopefully, I have to remember it’s only for the volume which I hardly adjust. I keep thinking about using that setup to scroll and select, I must say I do use the volume buttons to switch songs though..

  • M3D1T8R

    So does it have an option for the standard Android button layout (back/home/recent apps)? The omission of that from the G2 wrote that device off for me. If they fixed that, this could be a compelling device.

    • Serf33

      Um, You can change the arrangement and the nav bar buttons on the G2 to pretty much however you want it……

      • M3D1T8R

        Except for the standard android button layout, yeah. Pretty stupid.

      • duke69111

        There is not an option for the recents key though. They used a notification dropdown instead.

  • roberthenderson

    To bad there are still engineering numbskulls who don’t understand that speakers should be on the front. Our maybe they’re just not smart enough to design it that way. The same goes for onscreen buttons. If they’re not in the style of the Wave Launcher app or Pie Controls then they aren’t efficient, logical or even matching the home screen icons they’re crowding.

    • bboyairwreck

      +1 for Wave Launcher! Still love that app since the OG Droid days

      • roberthenderson

        I’m surprised how many people don’t know about that app. One of the best ever in imho. It would make onscreen buttons fantastic to use.

        • but thanks though

          Because the people are using better launchers in Nova and Apex

          • bboyairwreck

            -_- You completely missed the boat here. Nova and Apex are Homescreen launchers. Wave Launcher is for quick actions. I use Nova with Wave

    • flosserelli

      LG would have to give up some of that screen to frame ratio, but yeah I think most buyers would be willing to take that tradeoff.

      • roberthenderson

        It seems that if they can port the speaker out of the bottom, they should be able to rotate it 90° and do it out of the front.

    • http://twitter.com/geoff5093 Geoff Johnson

      Personally I rarely use the speakers on my phone for anything that important, if I want to watch a movie I don’t want everyone around me hearing it anyways. I would much rather have speakers on the bottom and very narrow bezels than something that looks like the HTC One.

    • Chris

      Same people who thinks its funny to have buttons on back..

  • Morbid138

    Damn that’s a sexy ass front of the phone.

    • panicswhenubered

      That’s the first time I’ve heard the front of a phone described as “sexy ass”. haha

  • slider112

    No glossy, fingerprint magnet back plate, FTW…

    • slider112

      Lol… it was a compliment. And I love the G2, that’s the only thing I’d change.

      • Vanquishgc

        Agree completely. I mean, I put cases on all my phones, but still, it’s an eyesore. Why not go for a matte finish? That would look fantastic.

  • Chris

    4k video recording? will it be as good as any actual 4k video recorders? doubt it.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      It’s a smartphone…. Can your video recorder make phonecalls and surf the net? Smfh

      • Vanquishgc

        You shut your mouth! There’s no good reason that my phone shouldn’t make my coffee in the morning!!! :P

    • The Narrator

      It’s there because 4K recording regardless of what device is being used, it will look good. The big thing is Full HD 120fps mode. I mean, look at the GoPro. The 4K recording is gorgeous.

    • Tim242

      It will for sure be better than anything HTC puts out.

  • Vanquishgc

    It’s like LG is begging me to ditch my Note 2, and stick it to Samsung. I’m cool with 1080p and not QHD (really, who NEEDS that), and while the 805 would be nice, there’s nothing wrong with the 800. Ok guys, I’m game. Bring it here, get it on Verizon, and I’ll see you in July.

    • Vanquishgc

      why would someone downvote this? Who could I have offended here? Lol! You guys crack me up, seriously.

      • flosserelli

        Someone has nothing better to do but downvote for no reason other than just to be a douchebag. Even losers feel the need for accomplishment.

    • Ben Udkow

      I ditched my Note 2 for the LG G2 and never looked back. :-)

      • Vanquishgc

        The only thing I’d miss is the screen real estate. I’ve grown fond of it. But, I’ve resorted to many different launchers as TouchWiz has brought me to the brink of insanity. Running Nova at the moment, which I never tried before. Quite nice, really. Good icon packs too. For me, I’m keeping an eye on the M8 (cautiously), and LG. Moto makes me nervous somehow, which is sad, because I’ve had four, dating back to the OG Droid.If Verizon somehow gets this model, I’m seriously all over it. Besides, I’ve never tried LG, and feel like I should give em a shot. Can’t be worse than the Droid Charge. Ugh….

        • hkklife

          The only thing worse than the Charge is the LG Revolution and maybe the Thunderbolt. Ugh, that initial trio of LTE handsets was absolutely atrocious.

          It’s absolutely astonishing to see how far thethe mobile handset market has come in less than 3 years!

    • AngryBadger

      This is the reason I left Verizon…

      I love to tinker with phones and they seem to always have gaps in what they offer. I was always seeing AT&T and T-Mobile get all the different variants and niche phones. Selling my unlimited data currently and happy on T-Mobile.

      *I understand everyone situation is different and may require certain networks. In no way am I saying one network fits all, just that Verizon didn’t suit me well.

  • jack

    Maybe there will be a GPE LG pro 2 down the road.

  • Liderc

    I feel like I’d be interested in one of their phones if they didn’t go this rear button stuff. It just seems to go against everything we’ve worked for in terms of usability.

    • evilfatcow

      Honestly it’s not that bad. You get used to it and knock on is pretty sweet.

    • Serf33

      I use the rear buttons, maybe 4 times a week. Knock on is very sweet, that’s all you need

  • TechWings

    Google Play Edition. Stock. I’d buy. Hell yeah.

  • Michael Suriel

    This phone could be amazing but LG needs to come up with ways to utilize the screen real estate. Otherwise, there is no need to have a screen that big

  • joejoe5709

    Im glad it’s a bit more than a larger G2. If they had included a Snapdragon 805 I would have been much more impressed. As it is, I’m not sure this will beat the Note 3. The camera sounds tasty. And I can’t wait for some KitKat love on my G2.

  • Nikuliai

    And LG does it again lol (oh samsung is gonna release their device let’s announce our stuff first!!)

  • Ed Cerqueira

    My question: The Korean G2 had a removable battery and Micro SD slot too. Will the G Pro 2 keep these features inernationaly or just in Korea like the G2?

    • SplashMTN

      I really hope they keep them for the US version. I probably won’t be getting this phone, but it’d be great if they bring the features over for future versions as well.

    • michael arazan

      It’s up to the carriers as always to approve them. Would be nice if they could get away with it. Hope they get a GPE device with this but keep the camera software and make The GPE for all carriers.

  • ImmaDroid

    Very Nice looking phone, It just may be too big for my taste!

  • mcdonsco

    Just measured my g2…they can get a 5.9″ screen in this frame!

    I wish…I always love the big screens but can’t handle the big chassis that goes with it…this g2 is about as big as I can go…maybe a slight touch bigger for 5.5″, but not note size.

    • chris125

      Only if it was completely bezel free

  • BigMixxx

    Hoe Lee ssheat….

  • Philip J. Fry

    This phone + stock software = winning

    • Dominick White

      Maybe the next nexus will be base on this

      • Philip J. Fry

        One can only hope so, but I doubt they’ll make a nexus phone this big.

        • M3D1T8R

          Well, it is the Nexus 6… haha. Seriously though I doubt they’ll do that.

          • Tim242

            Nexus 6, as in 6th Nexus

          • M3D1T8R

            Ummm.. obviously. You completely missed my point.

          • joseph barrientos

            ..

  • James_C_L

    Biggest statement to me…LG claims that it is going back to the basics with this phone, something we saw Motorola do last year. They have included “just the most useful UX features,” rather try to stuff as many features into the phone as they did with all of their phones from last year.

    • Pratik Holla

      YUP! I didnt even care about the specs. That one statement said it all. Wish more and more OEM’s went this route.

      • Eric R.

        It would better, if it had a stylus.

        • Adrynalyne

          When I had my Note 2, I thought the stylus was an awesome idea. I almost never used it.
          Now that I have a Note 3, I thought I might use the stylus even more. I use it even less.

          • http://twitter.com/geoff5093 Geoff Johnson

            I had both and felt the same way. It was one of those things that made me get it as I thought I would use it all the time, but I found I only used it when I wanted to show it off to someone.

          • needa

            kind of like 99% of all the touchwiz crap. it is only used when you want to show it off.

          • Force Meow

            I have the note 2, didnt I think I would use the stylus / s pen (this heresy from a former treo owner!) but have ended up using it on a regular basis. it’s really nice writing on photos, tapping small on screen controls, and capturing signatures of customers.

  • mcdonsco

    Me likey

  • Thugnificiant

    Looks like LG is the new Motorola, this is what phones are made of, no set backs just unleashing full capabilities, not making excuses on why they didn’t go all top of the line. Cough * cough * moto, htc, Apple. Looks like fierce competition for Samsung this year.

  • chris125

    Samsung you have some stiff competition this year. Better be ready with the s5

    • hkklife

      Forget to S5, this thing perfectly bridges the gap from the GS5 to the Note 4. *PLEASE* let this thing come to VZW!

      This also bodes very well for the G3. I am just worried they will gimp the US version of the Pro 2 and jettison the expandable storage and removable battery for the dumbed-down US version just like they did with the G2.

      • chris125

        I agree. I would love this on verizon

  • chris125

    LG really bringing it. Still not sure about the buttons but hopefully if it comes to Verizon the wireless charging won’t cause the buttons to be changed again. Nice LG

  • qudwls6933

    This thing actually go against S5 especially if unlocked bootloader

  • Michael Nyitrai

    Whoa

  • paulqg

    It’s really making me think about getting this phone. Removable battery and sd storage. An android fanatic’s dream!!

    • El_Big_CHRIS

      LG is doing great. I might take this over the M8. Just gotta give HTC more time to show what they got

      • The Narrator

        Their cameras are exciting too. Full HD 120fps, and 4K
        Yes, please.

      • paulqg

        I definitely agree. If they focus more on what android enthusiast want, (like Motorola did), they can be a successful company again! No big HTC logo on their new M8! But love what LG is doing!

        • El_Big_CHRIS

          yeah, Im hoping that those leaks were just prototypes, but my gut tells me HTC will include the bar just cuz they be stoopid :(

        • Tim242

          Yeah, because that helped moto sell so many phones. Oh wait…they didn’t.

          • Intellectua1

            I don’t know why people keep trying to hype the Moto X up to be something it never was.. It was probably only an amazing phone to the Droid-Life crowd. But people need to be honest that phone just didn’t do well and was not a good phone.. Nobody care for it, I have NEVER seen anybody with a Moto X

          • pappy53

            Are you really that dumb, or are you just playing around?

          • Adrynalyne

            Remember when it wasn’t about the companies, but rather technology?

            Those days are gone. In place, people fight with their dying breath for brand names. Nothing Motorola brings out will appease the savagery of someone who fights for Samsung, and visa-versa.

          • Stone Cold

            I am not tied to any one brand. I have had the Motorola Cliq, HTC Mytouch slide 3 and 4G and the Samasung Relay 4G. I would still like to see more OEMs come stateside right now I am eyeing the Sony Z1s as my next daily driver. Seeing as physical keyboards have been deemed evil by OEMs.

          • Intellectua1

            No, but I can tell by your attack that I have more education than you. But I’m not going to stoop that low to your level, 4 people agree and I’m sure the many others do too that’s why the sales sucked.. The Droid-Life crowd likes to hold on to that phone like it was the Holy Grail of Android. FYI : Sales tell it all, the phone sucked and nobody wanted it..

          • JoeTi

            For reference, which phone do you use. Might help your argument. BTW, full disclosure: Droid maxx for me, but open to other’s opinions.

          • Intellectua1

            S4 right now, Passed on the AT&T Note 3 because you can’t unlock it.. I’m assuming it’ll be the same with the S5 so this phone may be my next..

          • Stone Cold

            Co-worker has it and loves it.

      • jnt

        The G2 is still a top-tier awesome device. I think this G Pro 2 will be way too big for me honestly. Hopefully some of the software “pull back” will come to the G2 as well.

    • http://twitter.com/geoff5093 Geoff Johnson

      Agreed, this looks awesome! The extremely thin bezels too are great if it’s anything like the G2, I wonder how the size compares to the Note 3.

      • The Narrator

        G Pro 2- 157.9 x 81.9 x 8.3mm
        Note 3-151.2 x 79.2 x 8.3 mm

        G Pro 2 screen = 77.2%
        Note 3= 74.6%

        • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

          I love you dimensions people. Because I would never look that up myself lol. Thanks.

        • jwildman16

          I’m lovin’ this phone, but I’d be way more interested with a screen size around 5 – 5.5″. Maybe G3?

          • The Narrator

            Yeah, the G3 is looking at 5.3-5.5. It won’t be very big body either. The 5.2 G2 is so much smaller than the 5.5 Note 2. Gotta love slim bezels.

    • SplashMTN

      I’m really hoping the removable battery and sd storage makes it to the US version. The Korean G2 also has a micro sd slot and a removable battery, but they didn’t bring it over to the US.

    • schlanz

      This is huge. So nice to see a return to removable storage and battery. If the next iteration of this phone has a stylus I’ll abandon the Note line.

    • Cowboydroid

      Android fanatic here that has never understood the fascination with removable batteries…

      I’m still searching for the keyboard unicorn though…

      so you have one of the cheapest phones on the market… price and build, and you are thinking of upgrading. you arent saying too much.

    • Force Meow

      Yeah, but only 32gb?

      Probably 64 for US?

  • Carlos Lopez

    Looks kinda nice, If it wasn’t so big I’d consider it

  • The Narrator

    So LG topped everybody with 77.2%
    All this camera stuff is exciting too. Love it.

      Yeah, those slim side bezels are nice. But I’d take larger top/bottom bezels if it had front facing speaker(s). Hear me HTC? Slim the sides!

    • EricMayBell

      Well phones with extremely large screens have an unfair advantage when it comes to % screen to bezel. But with that said, I love this new trend LG is showing

  • Lorenzo Rey Camejo

    It looks sexy, too bad its gonna come with LG’s ulgy UI

    • paulqg

      It’s called using a launcher and rooting it!

      • Lorenzo Rey Camejo

        The UI its not just the launcher, its the whole framework, notification bar, status bar, navbar, settings,dialer contacts messaging apps, etc etc etc, and LG’s its not only ugly, but its a bad copy of Samsung UI which is already aweful to start with

        • paulqg

          Like I said it’s called rooting it.

          • Suck Me

            Jesus I wish all you rootards would just shut the ever loving hell up. Or eat the business end of a chainsaw.

          • paulqg

            shuuuuut the

        • http://twitter.com/geoff5093 Geoff Johnson

          Launcher + Xposed framework (This is on my G2)

          • M3D1T8R

            Dang, sorry about your LTE signal strength.

        • Dominick White

          I would take lg ui, over that crappie TouchWiz

      • Force Meow

        Root isn’t necessary- Go Launcher is faster than TouchWiz on the last three phones I’ve had, some rooted, some not.

    • The Narrator

      LGs skin is way above the rest. Minimal bloat, fast, and good.

    • oldman_60

      You can replace it by another launcher. It will come with kikat 4.4 which is not bad.

    • Philip J. Fry

      Nothing is uglier or bloated or laggy than touchwiz.
