A few days ago we heard that the LG Optimus G Pro will be sold by only one carrier in the US, namely AT&T. Now, the mobile operator has made the smartphone meant to compete with the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 available for pre-order.
The Optimus G Pro is the successor of the original Optimus G and comes with an impressive set of specs that will meet the needs of even the most exigent users. Probably the main attraction of the device is its display which is 5.5-inch in size, but the rest of the hardware is just as appealing. The LG Optimus G Pro packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor clocked at 1.7 GHz, a 13 MP rear-facing camera, and a 2.1 MP shooter located on the back, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of on-board storage, and a 3,140 mAh battery. Apart from the 802.11ac Wi-Fi, the LG Optimus G Pro comes with specs that could easily rival other smartphones that are more popular such as the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One.
Returning o what’s more important here, as of today the LG Optimus G Pro is up for pre-order exclusively at AT&T. Those of you who are interested in buying the handset should know that it’s listed at $199.99, and you should be receiving o May 7, which us three days earlier than the date when the smartphone will become available in stores.
It seems that more and more phone makers are building larges devices and LG has done a very good job with the Optimus G Pro. The device is great, but the downside of buying an LG product is that you will probably have to wait a lot until you will receive a software update. We all know the South Korean company likes to take its time when it comes to firmware upgrades. This is probably one of the reasons why LG is not among the big players of the Android world, because when it comes to hardware there is not much to reproach.
