LG introduces the G Pro 2: Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 Competitor

While we are awaiting the release of LG’s next flagship Smartphone, the G3. The Korean company has unveiled a phablet variant of its current flagship Smartphone- the LG G2. The device is dubbed as G Pro 2 and is successor to last year’s Optimus G Pro. Taking on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3’s large screen size of 5.7-inch, the G Pro 2 sports a 5.9-inch display. Even though its display is .2-inch larger, it’s just 2.7mm wider and 6.7mm taller than the Note 3. This is possible due to extremely thin bezels along the display at just 3.3mm. What’s more astounding is that the device boasts of screen-to-frame ratio of 77.2percent only.

LG G Pro 2Similar to its sibling, the G Pro 2 has buttons at the rear for increasing or decreasing volume and power button. To make it easier to unlock the device, the software of the G Pro 2 offers Knock Code functionality. Just like KnockON, it allows the device to be unlocked by tapping a specific code. It also has Mini View interface for making it suitable for one-handed use.
