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
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.
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.
