Press Render of the LG Optimus G Pro for AT&T Leaked

LG Optimus G Pro

Twitter account @evleaks is at it again this morning, this time leaking a press render for the upcoming LG Optimus G Pro for AT&T. This is the same device that is set to be announced at an LG press event next week on May 1, so this is when things get exciting. We are putting our bets on the device’s specs to not change too much from the Korean version, which is one beast of a device. 

The Korean version sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 chip, a monster 5.5″ 1080p display, 13MP camera, and a large suite of proprietary software much like Samsung does with their Galaxy lineup of devices.

Next week, we will know 100% what to expect for the US.

    This is NOT a Note 2 Clone. Its much narrower and just overall BETTER even without S pen. I Love competition like this. Samsung is good at it too!

  • ROGandhi

    waiting for this…

  • Steve

    cheap, faceless, ugly, too narrow, no stylus, copycat “design”, LG.

    Galaxy S4.
    Note 3.
    X.

  • flosserelli

    Nice specs, but developer support will be virtually nonexistent.

  • RoadsterHD1

    It looks like the S4. Little different shape but for the most part, a S4

  • Jagdeep Singh

    aaannnnnnnddddd its ugly…whats new

  • Fattie McDoogles

    I wish it still had the TV antenna

  • meijin3

    LG should do it’s own thing instead of trying to copy Samsung with it’s UI.

  • Ibrick

    Given the option I would take this over the Note 2.

    • Calvin Williams

      Why? Besides the 1080p, SLIGHTLY upgraded processor and battery, what else makes you like this over the Note 2 which has the S Pen, Huge amount of extra features, 2 medium use battery life and a huge amount of dev support?

    Someone around here must love downing comments. Whoever it is, you suck if you can’t take criticism.

  • jzwerlz43

    not going to lie the design looks like a cheap galaxy s knockoff lol

  • PhoenixPath

    These “It’s an S4!” comments are all bad attempts at humor, right? Seeing the LG logo sitting right there at the top and the horrible UI interface, I find myself unable to believe anyone could make such a mistake IRL.

    Some folks may not like TW much, but even they need to admit it looks better than the crap pictured above.

  • Jroc869, Nexus-Life

    Such a fail on the back button placement

    • Ronald Natson

      Its in the same place on your nexus

      • Jroc869, Nexus-Life

        yeah but my nexus isbt 5.5 inches big its kind of a reach to to get the back button on a phone that big. I also have a note 2 and couldn’t imagine stretching that far every time to reach the back button

        • Tim242

          They are two-handed devices. Get used to it.

          • Jroc869, Nexus-Life

            No kidding i own a two handed device. That doesnt mean there shouldn’t be consideration on where the button placement is. I can use my note 2 one handed for a lot of things and its nice to have the back button on the right side

          • Tim242

            Trying to use the Note 2 one-handed too much will lead to wrist problems.

  • http://twitter.com/jamdev12 jamdev12

    I don’t know what it is, but why do LG phones look ugly compare to other phones? Is it their UI spin on Android, or something else? I don’t get it, but everytime I look at their phones, I just want to puke.

  • Logan Jinks

    Man looks like Samsung just got LG’d!

    Thats pretty shameless. LG is trying so hard to by Samsung that the have take a page right out of the Samsung play book. I wonder how many might actually buy this thinking its a S4.

    • http://twitter.com/nedrudrelytmai Tyler Durden

      The S4 doesn’t have a 5.5 in display.

    • http://twitter.com/P0iS0NXX P0iS0N

      Funny how things run full circle,eh? Kinda like how Samsung took a few chapters from Apple’s playbook. I’ve said this before, and will say it again. I think every manufacturer out there copies another to some degree.

      • Tim242

        Taking a chapter from the playbook is a little different than stealing the whole book and calling it yours.

        • http://twitter.com/P0iS0NXX P0iS0N

          I’m not sure why everyone is so stuck on Samsung. They copied Apple for tons of things, yet another manufacturer copies Samsung, and it’s like Oh my God, they’ve done the ultimate crime. Samsung just recently became a big player in the cell phone market.

          • Tim242

            Every company copies ideas. Samsung never put out a phone that is identical to the iPhone. The Optimus G Pro is a Note 2 clone.

    • Tim242

      You mean Note 2?

  • Alexander Garcia

    See!? Now AT&T knows how to minimally brand a device. Take notes Big Red!!! And stop Tramp-Stamping phones!

    • http://twitter.com/nedrudrelytmai Tyler Durden

      AT&T doesn’t have a presence like Verizon. Their network sucks.

      • Alexander Garcia

        I didn’t mention network performance at all. Regardless… Verizon is still the worst by far when it comes to branding.

      • Jroc869, Nexus-Life

        Att network doesn’t suck as would suggest. Unfortunately Verizon right now has a big presence for some of the wrong reasons. Over branding, slow updates, dwindling phone selection and when they do get a phone it is the last to be released

        • http://twitter.com/nedrudrelytmai Tyler Durden

          Because they can afford to do it. Not sure why logos are a big deal anyways. It’s called marketing.

          • Jroc869, Nexus-Life

            Really? I guess they are just like apple then

          • http://twitter.com/nedrudrelytmai Tyler Durden

            Like apple in what way? Trying to be a monopoly?

          • Jroc869, Nexus-Life

            Well your reasoning is because they can afford to. Same thing with apple they do the things they do because they can afford to which is the worst thing for consumers

          • http://twitter.com/nedrudrelytmai Tyler Durden

            Then yes. They are like apple in that way. Except Verizon isn’t big enough to put logos on an iPhone.

      • Warwick

        I use to have ATT for some odd reason my house never got signal.

        • michael arazan

          For $150 ATT would be happy to sell you a signal booster to put in your home and/ or office.

          That was their solution to fixing connectivity issues with their network, lame asses

    • BulletTooth_Tony

      That carrier branding is subtle and non-offensive… but I don’t think only having the V checkmark would be any better in Verizon’s case…

    • Brent Cooper

      I lol’ed at the trams stamp! Funny :)

    • http://twitter.com/P0iS0NXX P0iS0N

      Yeah, AT&T has been pretty good about their branding. It’s not all overwhelming like Verizon. They make sure you know what company the phone belongs to.

    • Tim242

      Yeah…you just have to look at at&t in your status bar all day. That’s like watermarking the display.

  • Bob G

    I’m loving the way AT&T is finally toning down its logo on phones vs. Verizon making theirs larger and in more annoying places.

  • John

    Why does the Note 3 have a LG logo on it?

  • Jason Self

    Why does that GS4 have a LG logo on it?

    • Fattie McDoogles

      lol

    • Tim242

      You mean Note 2/
