Ahead of LG’s expected official launch of the G2 Pro at MWC later this February, the Korean smartphone manufacturer is releasing information about the upcoming phone’s camera capabilities. The G2 Pro will be equipped with upgrades to LG’s OIS (Optical Image Stabilization), in what the company calls OIS Plus.

LG’s OIS technology was introduced in last year’s popular G2, which we found took great photos and videos in our review. OIS Plus adds what LG calls EIS (Electro Image System) to further eliminate blurring and shaking caused by hand tremors and movement.

In addition to the promised “crystal-clear” photos, the software improvements to the G2 Pro’s camera allow for a few new features:

  • HD-quality video shot at 1.4 speed for slow motion playback
  • UHD (Ultra-HD) 3840 x 2160 video capture
  • 20 shot still camera burst mode, with new photo effects by combining all 20 shots into one.

We got a glimpse of the LG G2 Pro in an unconfirmed photo leak last week, but this is some of the first confirmed information on this highly anticipated device. It seems we may have to wait a little longer before we get to see the device in action, but we’ll be sure to share any new info that crosses our desks.

Are you as excited as we are to see these new camera improvements in action on the G2 Pro?
