AT&T launching LG’s Optimus G Pro in May?
The LG Optimus G Pro might be officially released in the US as soon as next month.
According to Android Central, the new smartphone is expected to debut on AT&T starting May 10 – and it might turn out to be the rumored E940. In any case, will be the 5.5 inch version that’s available in South Korea, not the 5 inch one introduced in Japan.
The Optimus G Pro is LG’s newest flagship smartphone, achieving sales of more than 500,000 units in Korea only. Its features include a Full HD display, Android Jelly Bean, LTE connectivity, 13MP rear camera, quad-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of expandable memory.
For the moment, it’s not clear if the Optimus G Pro will be released by any other US carrier.
The Optimus G is certainly capable of competing with Samsung’s Galaxy S4, which will be launched by AT&T on April 16. Still, since it’s the 5.5 inch model that’s coming to the US, it makes more sense for it to be seen as a threat to the Galaxy Note II, and not to the S4.
AT&T is already selling the older Optimus G – released in November 2012 and currently offered for $99.99 on contract. The Optimus G has been updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean just recently.
