The 5.5-inch LG Optimus G Pro officially joined the phablet battle yesterday. It’s the company’s first smartphone with Full HD IPS display and it comes with new UX features developed to meet the growing demand for smartphones with large screens.
The Full HD IPS display on the Optimus G Pro was developed in partnership with LG Display to deliver 1920 x 1080 pixels at 400ppi. It features 3140mAh battery capacity and an improved 13MP rear and 2.1MP front camera which enables users to capture images and videos in Full HD, the same quality found on high-definition TVs.
The device also comes with UX features such as Dual Recording and Virtual Reality (VR) Panorama. The former allows users to capture video with both the front and rear cameras simultaneously while the VR Panorama allows shots of entire horizontal and vertical environments for a full 360o view.
“The Optimus G Pro was developed specifically to deliver vivid and superb picture quality in a large display smartphone form factor,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “We will continue to expand our position in the premium LTE smartphone segment with our superior display technology and unique user experience.”
