LG adds Galaxy S4 features to Optimus G Pro [video]

LG Value Pack Update Optimus G Pro

Samsung (005930) showcased a number of unique feature at its Galaxy S4 press event last month in New York City. The company touted the smartphone’s ability to pause a video when a user looked away from the screen and its new camera technology that allowed for the front and rear-facing cameras to operate at the same time. The Galaxy S4 is expected to shatter all sorts of records when it is released later this month, however one company is trying to get in Samsung’s way.

LG (005930) is taking a page out of Samsung’s book and plans to copy its South Korean rival. The flagship Optimus G Pro smartphone is equipped with a full HD display, quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor and a 13-megapixel rear camera, hardware features shared with the Galaxy S4.

LG plans to tweak its software, however, and make it even more similar to Samsung’s smartphone.

The company has announced a new “Value Pack” update for its Optimus G Pro  that will add a number of Galaxy S4-like features to the device.

The Optimus G Pro will have a new “Smart Video” feature, which is essentially a rebranding of Samsung’s Smart Pause technology, that will pause a video when a user’s eyes are not focused on the screen. The update will also include the ability to use both the front and rear-facing cameras at the same time and a Pause & Resume video recording feature.

LG will begin updating existing Optimus G Pro smartphones in South Korea on April 12th.
