Mobile Cellphone Info has posted a new item, 'AT&T to launch LG Optimus G Pro on
May 10 for $199.99, pre-orders start May 3'
Looks like the rumors were true. AT&T this morning announced that it will launch
the LG Optimus G Pro on May 10 for $199.99 with a two-year commitment. Pre-sales
for the device will begin on May 3, and AT&T says that anyone that pre-orders a
unit will receive a free black Quick Cover case.
The AT&T-flavored version of the Optimus G Pro doesn't appear to be terribly
different from the international version that debuted this year. There's a
physical home button at the bottom of the device's face, complete with a
notification light surrounding it, as well as capacitive back and menu buttons
on either side of it. As you can see in the image above, AT&T has decided to
slap its globe logo on the backside of the unit, right beneath the camera.
The specs of the AT&T Optimus G Pro also look to be fairly similar to the
international model. That means that AT&T folk can expect a 5.5-inch 1080p
display, 13-megapixel rear and 2.1-megapixel front cameras and a 1.7GHz
quad-core processor. Here's the full spec rundown for AT&T's version of the
Optimus G Pro:
5.5-inch 1920x1080 screen
1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor
13-megapixel rear, 2.1-megapixel front cameras
32GB built-in storage, microSD slot with support for up to 64GB cards
4G LTE connectivity
Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean
AT&T notes in its announcement that its got an exclusive on the Optimus G Pro,
so it looks like any U.S. consumers that are interested in LG's new phone/tablet
hybrid will have to snag a unit from Big Blue, at least for now. That's kind of
a bummer for customers on other operators, but it is good to see that LG's new
flagship device is hitting at least one major carrier here in the U.S. So now
that it's officially official, do any of you AT&T folk plan on checking out the
Optimus G Pro once it lands on store shelves next week?
