We knew that the LG Optimus G Pro was eventually going to land in the U.S.
, and now we have one more clue indicating which carrier might be offering it once it is out. According to an anonymous source for Android Central
, AT&T is interested in adding LG's current flagship to its lineup. The LG Optimus G Pro
for AT&T is allegedly scheduled to launch on May 10
– just in time to compete with the Samsung Galaxy S4
, which is to be released around that same time. The date, however, is still subject to change, the source clarifies, and may be moved in either direction.
Just to make things clear, the AT&T LG Optimus G Pro will come with a 5.5-inch 1080p display, or at least that's what the source of today's leak claims. Chances are that its specs won't differ from what the Korean version of the smartphone has to offer, namely a Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB of RAM, LTE connectivity and a 13MP main camera. As a side note, a variant of the LG Optimus G Pro is now available in Japan
, but it comes with a smaller, 5-inch IPS LCD display.
So yeah, perhaps that mysterious LG E980 we saw at the FCC
was really the AT&T LG Optimus G Pro. It's a powerful device with plenty to offer, so buyers looking for a top-of-the-line Android smartphone should be quite interested. To learn more, feel free to read our in-depth LG Optimus G Pro review
