I took a look at the LG Optimus G back in November, and was quite impressed by LG's high-end smartphone offering. LG is back on AT&T with its new LG Optimus G Pro, and ZDNet's sister site CNET has a first look at the device with a large 5.5-inch display.
Starting on May 3, you will be able to pre-order the LG Optimus G Pro on AT&T's site, with release in stores beginning on May 10. It will be available for the standard $199.99 with a two-year contract. Recent smartphone market reports show that LG is on the rise, and devices like the Optimus G Pro will likely help continue that trend.
Like the new HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S IV in the US, the LG Optimus G Pro is powered by a SnapDragon 600 1.7 GHz quad-core processor. Other specifications include:
5.5-inch display with 1,920x1,080 pixels (400ppi)
Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean OS
32GB internal storage with microSD expansion
13-megapixel rear camera and 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera
The LG Optimus G Pro also includes advanced software functionality, including the ability to simultaneously record with both the front and rear cameras for an interesting experience; VuTalk, which lets you draw and share notes in real time between devices; QSlide 2.0, which lets you open and use two apps at once on the large display; and more.
