LG Optimus G Pro to be unveiled in Asia on May 30th

You might remember earlier this month when LG sent out invitations to an event to be held May 30th in Macau. While the name of the phone wasn't mentioned, a highlighted "G" in the word imagination hinted that this media event would be held to introduce the LG Optimus G Pro. The Korean manufacturer has released a newer image of the invitation that confirms that the LG Optimus G Pro is indeed the guest phone of honor.

The LG Optimus G Pro is currently available in the U.S. exclusively from AT&T for $199.99 with a signed two-year contract. On the horizon for the manufacturer is the LG Optimus G2 which is a sequel to the LG Optimus G and is expected to be released in the third quarter. This is the model believed to be the mysterious unnamed LG handset that was leaked in a pair of photos earlier this month.

Sorry, irrelevant post but check gsmarenahttp://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_note_iii_and_xiaomi_mi3__antutu_scores_found-news-6073.php for the Note III and Xiaomi Mi3 AnTuTu benchmark scores. The Mi3 with Snapdragon 800 and Adreno 330 scored 80k+...and that on 1080p resolution.

I still don't understand why OEM's think exclusivity is the way to go. EVERY exclusive device is held back because of carrier loyalty. As much as I loved the original Note, there was no way I was going to leave VZW to go to AT&T just to get it and many others felt the same. The Razr...held back. The Evo... held back. Do I even need to mention how the iPhone was held back for years because you could only get it at AT&T? LG is shooting themselves in the foot with this one. I tried waiting for the G Pro because I thought it would be a better phone but had to go with the Note 2. Now the G Pro is a very distant memory because I LOVE my Note.
