AT&T makes the LG Optimus G Pro 5.5-incher official for $200 on contract, preorders start May 3

As promised, AT&T just made the LG Optimus G Pro official on its LTE carrier network. LG's seasonal flagship has many aces up its sleeve with a monstrous 5.5" Full HD display in a fairly compact body, 1.7 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 with 2 GB of RAM, 13 MP camera on the back, 32 GB of internal memory plus a microSD slot for expansion, and rounding it up with an equally impressive 3140 mAh battery pack, not to mention the IR blaster for controlling your TV, stereo and AC unit.

With these specs, it can go against any other flagship and beat it at its own game, and LG has spiced things up on the software front, too, with the QSlide apps hovering set, enhanced camera capabilities like a Dual Recording mode that lets you shoot with both cameras at once, and eye-tracking algorithms, for which it recently entered a kerfuffle about with Samsung on the topic of who introduced it first.

Android 4.1.2 is running the show, and the handset will be available for preorder as soon as Friday, shipping May 10 for the usual $199.99 two-year contract price, and you can read our thorough review of its Korean Optimus G Pro spitting image to warm up while you wait. Of course, AT&T's recent homebrew "cash for clunkers" program applies against the G Pro, so you can bring your rattled three-year-old or younger phone, and LG's finest will run you just a Benjamin, which is a sweet deal from any angle.
