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.
