LG Electronics has begun shipping its new G Pro 2 smartphone out to the Asia Region market, which includes Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, the Philippines, Vietnam, and Indonesia, among others. We had our first look at the G Pro 2 at this years’ Mobile World Congress and gave it a review last week. If you can get past its monstrous size, it turns out to be another good piece of high-end hardware from LG, especially if you hate bezels.
The smartphone’s most noticeable features are its huge display and ultra thin bezels. The display surpasses that of the Note 3, coming in at 5.9 inches with a full HD (1920×1080) display resolution. The device’s bezels are just 3.3mm thick at the sides.
On top of that, LG has also been focusing on its high-end media features. The LG G Pro 2 includes an Optical Image Stabilizer on its rear camera, as well as the option to record 4K video, and 120 fps 720p footage for slow-motion capture.
The LG G Pro 2 packs in some other high-end hardware too, including a 2.26GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 CPU, Adreno 330 GPU, 3GB RAM, 16/32GB internal memory, 13MP OIS+ rear camera, 2.1MP front facing camera, and a 3200mAh battery.
Although the device is shipping out in Asia right now, LG hasn’t stated when the North American and European releases will be. Not to worry though, as the launch of the company’s next flagship LG G3 smartphone is right around the corner.
