LG OPTIMUS G PRO™ E980 SOFTWARE UPDATE

We are pleased to announce software version E98010k upgrade for the LG Optimus G Pro™ is now available. LG has included the following improvements:
  • Dual camera – Place yourself in the heart of the action with the picture-in-picture technology of Dual camera. By activating both the front and rear cameras, you can capture both the subject matter and the user, simultaneously.
  • Pause & Resume recording – Capture precisely what you want with Pause & Resume recording, allowing you to stop and start recording a video, pausing for unwanted footage and playing again to continue recording—stitching together the footage seamlessly for one continuous video.
  • Smart video – Never miss a single moment with Smart video, monitoring the position of your eyes and automatically pausing video playback if it detects you have looked away from the screen. Once your focus returns to the display, the video will resume from where you left off.
  • QuickRemote 2.0 – Magic Remote Pad and Text Keypad features are integrated to provide the ultimate user experience when using Optimus G Pro as a remote control for LG Smart TVs released in 2012 and after.
  • Color Emoticon – Personalize your text messages with fun and unique Color Emoticon, giving you 800 new ways to express yourself like never before in bright and fun symbols with different colors and patterns.
  • Enhanced Home Button LED – Always be informed without having to wake your display with LED Home Button, flashing your choice of different color-specific patterns for instant notifications, so you know what’s happening with easy and bright on-the-go alerts. Users can now customize the colors to correspond to their favorite contacts.
