The immersive Full HD IPS display on the Optimus G Pro delivers a high resolution specification of 1920 x 1080 pixels at 400ppi that gives users more screen real estate to view and show off the brilliant images.

VR Panorama: The VR Panorama function allows the creation of seamless and picturesque 360° view of scenic shots horizontally and vertically.

Pause and Resume Recording: The Pause and Resume Recording feature allows for the recording of short snippets of videos which can then be viewed as one uninterrupted video, thereby reducing the time and effort taken to string the clips together to form a continuous running clip.
