Optical Image Stabilization continues to make inroads in smartphones - to be included in new LG G Pro 2 flagship
While smartphones were quick to start climbing the megapixels ladder, optical image stabilization was a different kind of challenge. However, it is slowly but steadily now picking up momentum. Last year LG was the first Korean manufacturer to offer optical image stabilization in a smartphone (LG G2). This year, they have officially announced on their Korean website (computer-translated) that their new flagship uberphone, to be announced in/by late February at the Mobile World Congress in beautiful Barcelona::Spain, the "LG G Pro 2" will feature an improvement of that technology, the "OIS Plus". The OIS Plus appears to be combining both optical image stabilization and software (based on the shaky computer translation). The new uberphone will also be able to record 4K video (UHD), slow motion HD video, burst mode at full resolution, etc.
