LG Optimus G Pro for AT&T goes official

01 May, 2013

AT&T has just announced it will be launching the LG Optimus G Pro flagship on May 10. It will be an AT&T exclusive smartphone and will go on pre-order on May 3.

AT&T's Optimus G Pro is almost identical with its international sibling. It has a 5.5-inch 1080p IPS display and is powered by the Snapdragon 600 platform with a 1.7GHz quad-core Krait 300 processor, Adreno 320 graphics and 2GB of RAM.

The rest of the Optimus G Pro include a 13MP rear and a 2.1MP front camera capable of 1080p dual video recording, 32 gigs internal storage expandable via a microSD card slot, and a 3140 mAh battery.

The connectivity package of the Optimus G Pro is quite feature-rich - there is LTE support for the AT&T's network, HSPA support, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS with A-GPS and GLONASS, FM radio and even an infra-red port to turn your Optimus G Pro into a universal remote control.

AT&T's Optimus G Pro runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, skinned with LG's proprietary UI with various useful features, apps and services. You can check our review to learn more about those.

You can get the Optimus G Pro with a two-year AT&T contract for $200. There is also an option to return your old phone (up to three-years old) and receive $100+ credit.

There is an LG press event tonight in New York. We'll be attending it and we'll bring you some hands-on impressions of the Optimus G Pro. Even though we've met with the international handset a while ago, we haven't seen the black version of the device yet. It looks like we'll finally right this wrong later today.
