After weeks of teasing us, LG has finally unveiled its successor to the "best smartphone of MWC 2013", the LG G Pro 2. LG's G Pro 2 features a 5.9-inch 1920x1080 display, and an 'extra slim bezel' of just 3.3mm. This provides the G Pro 2 with an 'industry-leading' screen-to-frame ratio of 77.2%.

It also crams in a thicker, high-power 1W Hi-Fi sound that is 30% louder than its predecessor, with more powerful bass, too. The 13-megapixel rear-facing camera has been 'enhanced', which is now capable of shooting 4K video. The G Pro 2 features OIS+ (Optical Image Stabilizer Plus) and can shoot video at 120FPS, too.

Inside of the G Pro 2, we have Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 SoC which is a 2.26GHz quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM, a 3200mAh removeable battery, LTE support, and either 16GB or 32GB of on-board storage. It will arrive in three colors: titan, white and red. LG hasn't yet decided on markets outside of Korea, but we should hear more about that at MWC in the coming weeks.
