Optimus G Pro

New camera features and eye recognition shown in official video

Last month we talked about an upcoming software update for the LG Optimus G Pro, dubbed the "value pack". Corny name aside, it promised to deliver a few new features to the popular Korean handset. Tonight LG has pumped out a video showing off some of them.

In the video (after the break) you'll find a nice walkthrough of LG's Smart Video eye recognition, the dual-camera video and still capture, and seamless pause and resume video recording. These features should go over well in LG's home market, where the Optimus G Pro is currently sold.

LG hasn't giving any time frame for the update yet, We've checked our Optimus G Pro for updates, and nothing is here just yet. We'll have a deeper look at the features when it does arrive.

Cool features but most if not all of those except the play/pause record are already present on the Note II and S3. I do like the play/pause feature.

NOTE: the social sign in links you all have on this site, one of them reverts back to the wrong one. the google+ reverts to windows...

Lmao!!! They are so on Samsung's jock so hard right now. Could they at least try something new. I mean is bad enough that the Optimus g pro already looks like the note II. Come on.

Why does that Galaxy Note 2 say LG on it?

LG just claimed that Samsung stole their inside secrets but I find it very strange that LG has incorporated Samsung's features and their innovations into their LG Smartphone. It's a crazy ass world we live it, make sure you are careful out there. I think this LG is a bad ass phone with stellar looks and design. It looks allot like the Note 2 but different enough to give it it's on look. The home button lights up with notifications and other features. I would be very proud to own this beast. It's great to have choices.

Does the Optimus G Pro have an "Air View" like feature when you hover your finger? I have a Galaxy Note, and that is the #1 feature I use my S-Pen for, and is just about the only thing that would stop me from getting an Optimus G Pro. It is super useful on websites that have drop down menues when you hover your mouse over them, which are often difficult/impossible to use on touchscreen phones. Air View lets you emulate the mouse hover to use these (the desktop version of Bestbuy.com is a good example of a difficult to use site, due to drop down menues, that Air View makes perfectly usable).

This phone has everything else I want if/when it comes to AT&T. It will be out when I get my upgrade (unlike the Note 3, which I want but don't want to wait for) and has a screen that is more in the size realm of what I want (5.5-6+", unlike the GSIV).
