LG shows-off G Pro 2 with knock to unlock feature at #MWC14

LG’s presentation at MWC 2014 felt like a flurry of knock knock jokes without any punchline. The company has introduced a feature that lets you unlock the phone by tapping on specific areas of your phone’s screen instead of drawing patterns or typing in pin numbers.

This seems to be a slightly better version of the double tap to unlock feature LG had introduced in some of its devices last year. We hope that the concept works always and that people won’t have to keep tapping on the screen for more than a second to get down to work.

Improved multitasking: LG also showcased a vastly improved multitasking that lets you stream music or video, share screen and camera while on a call. This means you can answer the call without pausing what you were doing. This service however, works best if you’re on an LTE connection or a fast WiFi, as opposed to a 3G connection. You can also share maps with your friends and make notes on them when you’re making a group plan. These ideas are really interesting and we hope that LG converts the map sharing into an app that can be used by everyone with an Android device than restricting them to LG devices.

New home screen: LG is showcasing a new homescreen called LG Board with multiple functions like doctor services, live video content, fitness and virtual fitting of clothes using augmented reality.

G PRO 2: This is what you get when LG plays the game of ‘mine is bigger than yours’ with Samsung. The phablet has a 5.9″ full HD screen, powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 3GB RAM. The rest of the specs — 13MP camera, 120 FPS HD video capability, Adreno 330 GPU etc — are same as LG G2, which was used by Google as the base model to create the Nexus 5. Phablet market is exploding in Asian countries and LG is hoping that it will be able to one up other OEMs with this device. The retail price of the device was not revealed at the event.


G2 Mini: As the name suggests, G2 Mini is a mid-range version of G2. It has a 4.7″ full HD IPS display, that is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor and 1GB RAM.  It also has 8GB internal memory and an expandable slot with support up to 64 GB memory cards.

LifeBand Activity Tracker: This fitness tracker from LG has a 3-axis accelerometer and altimeter. It can connect to your Android phone via LG Fitness app to control music and answer calls. It comes in three sizes – medium, large and extra large.
