The invitation to the LG Optimus G Pro event May 1st in New York City

The LG Optimus G Pro will make its U.S. introduction on May 1st at a media event in the Big Apple. The press event includes a concert from what LG is calling "Indie music sensation Atlas Genius". The event will take place in the evening and we should find out then when the phone will be launched and exactly where those in the states will be able to find the device. We assume that if there are any changes in the specs, we will hear about them too. Earlier this month, sources said that the LG Optimus G Pro will be launched via AT&T on May 10th, which would dovetail perfectly with the press event.

The phone will be going up against some heavy duty competition in the U.S. market, such as the Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One and the Apple iPhone 5. Will LG be able to make any headway against its fellow Korean OEM? The device has some proprietary features such as QSlide 2.0 which allows multi-taskers to view two apps at once. One app appears solid and the other is translucent and by using the slide bar, you can adjust the settings to switch which app is which. Dual camera lets you use the front and rear facing camera together and Smart Video uses the front facing camera to track your eyes. If it detects that you are watching a video, it will continue playing. Once it notices that your eyes are no longer glued to the screen, the video stops playing thus saving battery life, and remembering where you left off.

Verizon have the the razr phones. So why should they get this one? Verizon is probably getting the motorola x phone exclusive as we speak just for themselves. Plus they always get the good phones anyway.

That RAZR phone is way outdated no1 wants that crap and what's all this probably? And I'm talking about now they didn't get the htc one, one X, one X plus, lg Optimus g, g pro, no high end nokia, and no Sony phones.. What we did get was a outdated RAZR that was worse spec wise than the s3 that was released months prior, and a DROID dna with some bum ass 16gb of storage that's it! If u think Vzw has better phones than At@t ur in denial

even though I love my verizon network, they are really getting under my skin with this lack of new phone trend. we get the S4....great! but what else have we gotten recently? the DNA??? REALLY?? what's up with the lack of Sony smartphones? if it weren't for needing great coverage and service, I would jump ship.

LG: no offence but your phones will never be in the same calibre as Samsung's. Nuff said.

This is probably the ugliest phone out of the flagships this year (HTC, Sony, Samsung, LG, Blackberry, Apple, etc.). I prefer the design of the Galaxy S4 by a long way. I'm kind of surprised because I thought LG was focusing on the designs of their handsets...

@Geek

Are you serious? Have you seen the S4? looks just like the S3. And you can't get any uglier than that.

Now it is time for Samsung to put a big poster on top of LG forum in New York. It is revenge for LG copycat the Galaxy Note 2.

Call me crazy, I don't care! In my opinion, the Optimus G Pro is better than the Galaxy Note 2!

I'm serious!
