LG unveiled its latest flagship smartphone at a media event in Seoul on Thursday. The G Pro 2 is a larger version of the original G Pro and will hit stores in Korea next week.
It features a 5.9-inch screen, slightly bigger than the previous model's 5.5 inches. LG increased the screen size by slimming the bezel to just 3 mm.
LG said the gadget offers improved security. It also comes with a 13- megapixel camera and one-watt-level speaker, the most powerful among smartphones manufactured here.
LG hopes to consolidate its No. 3 position in the market after Samsung and Apple but faces growing competition from Lenovo of China, which recently bought Motorola from Google.
