LG, the fourth largest smartphone maker in the world, has taken the wraps off the successor of its LG Optimus G Pro that was announced last year. Meet the LG G Pro 2, the company's latest "phablet" and competitor to Samsung's very own Galaxy Note 3.

The G Pro 2, LG says, features a "state-of-the-art display."

Sporting a 5.9-inch 1080p LCD panel with a screen-to-frame ratio of 77.2 percent, the device easily trumps the older LG G2 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. It's thinner too when compared to its predecessor, at just 8.3mm thick.

Moreover, the G Pro 2 features LG's new rear-mounted volume and power buttons, as well as new camera features that are quite nifty.

For example, the 13-megapixel rear shooter can capture 120FPS high-speed/slow motion shots. Plus, it supports 4K recording. The decent 2.1-megapixel shooter, meanwhile, comes with LG's "Flash for Selfie" feature which reportedly improves facial lighting.

Another attribute is the "Knock Code" feature that allows users to turn on or unlock the phone by simply tapping it. Sounds good, right? LG says there are over 86,367 different combinations to choose from.

Under the hood is a 2.26GHz Snapdragon 800 processor with 3GB of RAM, 16GB and 32GB storage options, and a huge 3,200mAh removable battery.

The LG G Pro 2 will be available in two models - LTE and LTE-A - and it will be showcased later this month at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
