If you were worried that you might not see the LG G Pro 2 until late February, here is a nice surprise for you. The Korean smartphone maker lifted the wraps off of its next flagship phone today, over a week before MWC which as you recall begins February 24th. Ladies and gentlemen, meet the new 5.9-inch LG G Pro 2 phablet, a successor of last year’s G Pro. From what we can say, LG will showcase the device in Barcelona even though it is has become official. Hopefully this is when we may learn about phone’s pricing and availability in stores.

The LG G Pro 2 features upgrades in all key aspects. The first thing you notice when you see the phone is that the display takes up almost entire front panel. The display measures 5.9-inches diagonally, yet the device doesn’t give the impression of being too big thanks to just 0.13-inch (3.3 mm) bezels. To be more exact, the phone measures 6.22 x 3.22 x 0.33 inch (157.9 x 81.9 x 8.3 mm) and weighs 6.07 ounces (172 g). There are no capacitive buttons and physical keys located on the back right below the camera.
The G Pro 2 packs a quad-core 2.26 GHz Snapdragon 800 processor with Adreno 330 GPU, 3 GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear camera with Optical Image Stabilization, a 2.1-megapixel front-facing shooter, and a 3,200 mAh battery. The phone will be available in two storage configurations, with 16 GB or 32 GB of internal memory. Both will allow additional storage space via microSD card up to 64GB. Connectivity features include 4G LTE, Bluetooth Smart Ready, Wi-Fi with mobile hotspot functionality and NFC.
The LG G Pro 2 runs Android 4.4 KitKat with a cool feature called Knock Code which allows users to activate various functions using preset knocking patterns.
