LG Optimus G Pro Headed to AT&T, Possibly Penciled in for May Release

LG Optimus Pro G

Curious about LG’s next flagship and when we can expect it to arrive on our shores? According to those close to the matter, the Optimus G Pro is set to make its way to the U.S. via AT&T, with a rumored launch date of some time in May, but we are also hearing June. The Optimus G Pro launched in Japan with a 5″ HD display, but apparently the American variant is set to come with a 5.5″ display instead, just like last year’s Galaxy Note 2. 

In terms of specs, we are looking at a 5.5″ 1080p display, Snapdragon 600 processor clocked at 1.7GHz, 13MP back-facing shooter, 2GB of RAM, and a  microSD slot for more storage. Keep in mind, when this device does launch, it will be going head-to-head with Samsung’s Galaxy S4, as well as HTC’s One. It’s starting to shape up to be a major battle for smartphone sales here in the U.S. during Q2.

With LG on the good side of American buyers again, is anyone interested? This is one beast of a device.

    I have VZW and they make me angry!
    When will they get their head out of their a$$ and get an awesome phone lineup?!?

  • I really like the HTC One, but a bigger screen is a requirement for me now.

  • EC8CH

    Not a fan of LG’s copy of Samsung’s copy of a home button 😛

    • It’s how Samsung became the big gun, copied Apple for 2 years and took over.

  • Austin Warren

    BTW. The Japan version launched with a 5.5 in as well. At least what I’ve seen from videos it did.

      As usual nothing special here with this wannabe Galaxy Note 2. Samsung rules this space period. I wouldn’t touch this with a ten foot pole especially with it’s software flaws and overheating problems. No thanks Lg we all in the android landscape already know you’re inability to deal with software. This video fast forward to 2:41 is enough evidence for me to say clear of Lg products. …https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=igghuyAPaYA&feature=youtube_gdata_player

    Nope, I have an LG phone and I’m going to Samsung when the GS4 releases

  • Warwick

    Any news if they are making a LG Intuition 2 ?

    • ANON

      release will stay in Korea of the Vu 2

      • Warwick

        Damn, would it work under any CDMA network in the states?

  • dannyWHITE

    Correct me if i’m wrong, but is there currently a 5.5″ device in the market right now with a 1080p screen?

  • Radgatt

    If this phone was on all the carriers then it would be a battle for supremacy. Unfortunately, I envision another Samsung dominated battle.

  • chris125

    look how quickly and far back samsung is going with their updates. I would hope lg could update 2 devices….

    • Ryan

      Optimus G and Nexus 4. There are 2 but ill add more. Spectrum 2, Intuition, Thrill and Nitro.

      • Sam’s Son

        I could be wrong, but maybe the popularity of Samsung products might be more beneficial over choosing an LG device. Better support in the dev community, better updates and more accessories from different companies. Now I don’t know how LG fairs in all this, and this is all assumption on me I admit, but I think that may be what chris125 is implying.

          I agree Samsung is way more popular and there is more of a dev community. However i do not like when people want to buy based on a brand like Apple. Look how much we rip on them over a brand. But with the new Optimus layout and better screen than AMOLED in time it will just as if not more popular. This is what I am hoping for.

      • You can’t count the nexus 4 in that one since that is a nexus and all and get update from Google themselves and Chris is right out of all the android phone markers, Samsung is the best at updates right now

        • darkknezz

          Ok how about the Tmobile LG Optimus L9 getting updated to JB and Optimus UX 2.5

      • darkknezz

        Optimus L9 got updated for TMO—in fact the update on that one blows away the others

    • Ryan

      Obviously your a samsung fan so ill let it be. to each is own.

      • chris125

        No I’m not but other than those two how many are updated? Not many, just saying.
