While we’re still patiently waiting for LG‘s latest phablet to hit the US markets, the company has announced the retail availability of the LG G Pro 2 in select Asian markets. With a lethal combination of unique UX features, a spacious Full HD display, and the latest digital camera technology, LG expects its first 2014 flagship to take the region by storm.
The LG G Pro 2 is definitely an interesting device, as you can read in our in-depth review. On one hand, it continues some traditions in the LG G2 and the G Flex, like rear button controls, ever-growing screen sizes, and a commitment to build quality. On the other hand, it also throws in just enough new features to make the device desirable in its own right.
For one, users will experience the latest incarnation of LG’s tap-based unlocking and security gesture, now called Knock Code, as well as a variety of other user experience (UX) features like Mini View and Dual Browser. A 13 megapixel camera, bearing LG’s own OIS+ technology, will also be greeting users on the back side of the device. All of these features are crammed into a large 5.9-inch device with a 1920×1080 screen resolution. The size might be a tad too big for some, but one could also conjecture that it is Asia that gave birth to phablets in the first place.
LG has announced that the LG G Pro 2 will be arriving in markets such as Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Philippines, and Vietnam. Unfortunately, the manufacturer has left out pricing details as well as availability dates, though the latter will most likely vary depending on the country.
