The Optimus G Pro, LG’s first Full HD display smartphone launched in Korea in March, will get the Value Pack upgrade with new and improved UX features on April 12.
New features include:
Recognizes the position of the viewer’s eyes and automatically plays or stops the video without any manual input from the user. When the viewer’s eyes are no longer focused on the smartphone display, the front camera recognizes this and immediately pauses the video. Once the user’s gaze returns to the smartphone, the video resumes playback from the point last viewed.
Extending the Dual Recording function, LG is introducing Dual Camera through this Value Pack upgrade. The world’s first Dual Camera function simultaneously captures photographs of both the subject and the shooter using both the front and back cameras for a picture-in-picture composition.
[Pause & Resume Recording]
The Pause & Resume Recording feature allows the user to pause and start in record mode for one continuous video file. Until now, a new video clip would be created when recording restarted, which resulted in multiple video files.
In addition to these new features, some current functions will receive upgrades. Magic Remote Pad will be added to the existing QRemote function to work specifically with LG Smart TVs. Similar to the touch pads of most notebooks, Magic Remote Pad turns the Optimus G Pro into a remote control for LG Smart TVs. What`s more, Text Keypad, another new addition to QRemote, will make typing on a Smart TV easier than ever before by turning the Optimus G Pro into a convenient input device.
