LG Electronics (LG) will be launching the Optimus G Pro in early July 2013. Optimus G Pro is the first smartphone in Singapore with 5.5-inch FULL HD IPS display that has double the resolution compared to a HD IPS display for optimal image quality. The device features the HD IPS screen of 1920 x 1080 pixels at 400ppi and a fast 1.7 GHz Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ quad-core processor. Not only that, it also recently received the Best LTE Device/Handset Award at the LTE World Summit 2013.
Here are some of the key UX features:
- QuickRemote: Optimus G Pro is the world’s first smartphone that is equipped with an all-in-one remote control. After registering home appliances into the Optimus G Pro, the user can control the electronic devices through infrared signal. The QuickRemote supports up to nine home electronics or appliances such as TV sets, set-top boxes, air conditioners, audio visual equipments, projectors and blu-ray players from a variety of brands.
- Smart Video: With advanced eye recognition technology, Smart Video recognizes the position of the viewer’s eyes and automatically plays or stops the video without any manual input from the user.
- QSlide 2.0: The QSlide 2.0 function allows users to overlay two different screens simultaneously on one display, allowing users to do two things at once, such as send a text message or search the web while also watching a video.
There are also innovative camera features that comes with the Optimus G Pro:
- Dual Camera and Dual Recording: The Dual Camera and Dual Recording functions allow users to capture pictures or videos with both the front and rear cameras simultaneously. Users can now partake in the video during any special moments and capture all the wonderful expression made from both sides of the camera.
- VR Panorama: The VR Panorama function allows the creation of seamless and picturesque 360° view of scenic shots horizontally and vertically.
- Pause and Resume Recording: The Pause and Resume Recording feature allows for the recording of short snippets of videos which can then be viewed as one uninterrupted video, thereby reducing the time and effort taken to string the clips together to form a continuous running clip.
LG Optimus G Pro will be available in Singapore early July at $868 in Indigo Black and Lunar White. Wireless charging dock and cover sold separately. For more information about LG Optimus G Pro, please visit www.lg.com/sg.
