Earlier, LG added KnockON feature to LG G2.

The latest Knock Code feature allows owners to power on and unlock their G Pro 2 smartphones in one easy step by tapping their screens using one of 86,367 “knock” combinations. Knock pattern can be entered on any area of the screen ― whether the display is turned on or off ― using anywhere from two to eight taps.

The G Pro 2 is the first LG smartphone to benefit from an enhanced 13MP camera with OIS+ (Optical Image Stabilizer Plus) and advanced functions ideal for creating sharing content.

In addition, the sensors and lens of the rear and front camera on the G Pro 2 have increased in both size and sensitivity.

According to the LG press statement, some of the other advanced image capturing features built into the G Pro 2 are:

·          120FPS HD Video Recording and Slow-Motion Editing: Records in 120fps HD and allows editing of video in three different speeds ― one-half slow motion, one-fourth slow motion and original

·          4K ULTRA HD Recording: Records video footage in ultra-high definition mode for playback on 4K TV sets

·          Magic Focus: After the shot is taken, users have the option to select the preferred depth of focus before saving. Users can also press the all-in-focus icon to make every object in the frame look their sharpest

·          Natural Flash: Offers more balanced color temperature and exposure for the most natural-looking photos compared to images taken with a normal flash

·          Flash for Selfie: Reduces the size of the preview screen and adds a bright white background for more “soft” lighting in self-portrait mode

·          Burst Shot: Takes up to 20 continuous shots and automatically edits them to create a video of the captured images

·          Gallery Collage: Allows users to select photos from their gallery to create a collage for easy uploading to favorite social network sites

Some of the new UX features include:

·          Content Lock: Provides users more security with the ability to lock files, photos, videos and memos with a unique password

·          Mini View: Enables users to comfortably use the G Pro 2 with one hand by shrinking the display to a size ranging from 3.4 inches to 4.7 inches, depending on the user’s preference

·          Dual Browser: Divides the expansive screen into two separate browser windows for more convenient surfing
