First details of LG G Pro 2 confirmed

We know for sure that it is launching, but LG seems to be keen on teasing some details of the LG G Pro 2 before the big day.

It seems like LG wants to drop feed us information about its upcoming phablet, presumably to whet our appetites ahead of the big day rather than leave the guesswork to a succession of leaks. Right now, it is focusing on the camera.

That camera, according to LG's Korean site, will pack a 13-megapixel sensor and interestingly, optical image stabilisation. Imagery is obviously a big selling point.

Apparently, the new technology 'floats' the camera lens, so when you move  or shake, the camera stays steady, which means less blurred photos. The aperture also stays open longer so more light gets in, which should improve performance in low light conditions too. Moving images aren't forgotten either, with HD video also possibly via the OIS camera and in slow motion, while stills will also benefit from a burst mode of up to 20 shots.

All of which sounds impressive on paper. We'll make our judgement once in lands in our hands though. As for the rest of the phone, LG will probably drip feed those details over the coming weeks. But we are expecting a fingerprint scanner (a pre-requisite in 2014), along with a 6-inch Full HD display, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB RAM, 4G connectivity and Android 4.4 KitKat for the operating system.

Look out for its debut at the end of February.
