Taking photos is another key highlight with a 13MP main camera that’s enhanced with OIS Plus, which is an improvement over its previous LG G2 camera with Optical Image Stabilisation. Like most high end device these days, it is also capable of shooting 4K videos as well. High speed 4G LTE support comes as standard which includes the faster LTE Advance.
Juicing up the device is a large 3,200mAh battery which is said to be removable and for more storage, there’s a microSD slot as well. The LG G Pro 2 will be released in South Korea at the end of this month and is available in 3 colours – White, Silver and Titan.
