LG has already confirmed it’ll be launching the G Pro 2 in the next few weeks, and now it has revealed the camera tech fitted to the rear of the new device. The news comes from a post on LG’s Korean blog, where the company talks about a new optical image stabilization system called OIS Plus, and that it’ll be part of the G Pro 2.
Optical image stabilization isn’t new to LG, as it was a prominent feature on the G2, and is one of the features which makes Nokia’s Lumia camera phones so great. Exactly how the OIS Plus system will differ to OIS seen on the G2 isn’t stated, so at least part of the surprise is still to come.
In case you’re not aware of how OIS helps out, it cancels out most of the camera shake to keep your photos blur free. Additionally, the lens can be open for longer, which makes your low-light snaps look much better too.
According to LG’s post, the G Pro 2 will have a 13-megapixel rear camera, which will also be able to record 4K resolution video. Above the screen will be a 2.1-megapixel camera, while other special features will include a slow motion mode and a burst mode.
If previous rumours are correct the G Pro 2 will sport a massive 6-inch screen, half-an-inch larger than the original G Pro, plus rear-mounted controls like the G2. There’s also a chance it will have a 1440p, or 2560×1440 pixel, resolution. We’re expecting LG to reveal the G Pro 2 at Mobile World Congress at the end of February, a year after the first made its debut.
