LG Optimus G Pro for AT&T pictured and spec'd
With the LG Optimus G Pro getting introduced at an event in the Big Apple on May 1st, perhaps this will be a three-team race after all for Android supremacy. The players, of course, are the Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One and the LG Optimus G Pro. Evleaks has taken a picture of the AT&T branded version of the LG Optimus G Pro and has passed along some of the specs. The 5.5 inch screen on the AT&T variant is a bit different from the version of the phone that launched in Korea. Still a FHD panel, it is a Full HD IPS screen as opposed to the True HD IPS+ found on the model that was launched in LG's backyard. Whether or not anyone can tell the difference is another story.

The AT&T version of the LG Optimus G Pro

Under the hood is a quad-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage. A 3140mAh battery keeps the lights running. A 13MP snapper is on back with a 2.1MP camera up front. It is a little disappointing that Android 4.1.2 will probably be pre-installed on the handset, when Android 4.2.2 should be running the show.

A number of LG's proprietary features will be on the LG Optimus G Pro including the multitasker's wet dream, the QSlide 2.0. You know the drill. Two apps are running at one time with one solid and one translucent. You can adjust the settings using a slide on the screen to change which app can be seen, and which one you can see through. Another LG feature is Quick Memo which lets you use your fingernail as a pen to write a quick note and send it to friends and family via a social network, email or SMS message. The LG Optimus G Pro also supports NFC.

The logo could be a lot worse, it could be Verizon's Note 2, that's just wrong. But good job LG on the 3140mAh battery, that's great!

I still can't believe LG copied the design of the S3 for their phones now. Also disappointing it'll be shipping with 4.1.2 and probably is going yo take months to bump it to 4.2.

Are the Optimus G and G Pro made of plastic?
People knock Samsung for using plastic. Is LG using plastic too?

If it wasn't for the logo I would have assumed this was a Samsung phone or concept.

I'm pretty disappointed that LG went the SS plastic route.. To me the last few phones were far better looking...plus the copy off of SS is obvious.. It's built into the DNA if their part of the world.
