LG is gearing up for unveiling the Galaxy Note II’s competitor, the Optimus G Pro for the U.S. carriers at a big New York City event, scheduled for next Wednesday, May 1st. LG Optimus G Pro is the successor to the yesteryear’s Optimus G handset, which was offered by AT&T and Sprint carriers in the United States. So, AT&T will be obviously one of the U.S. based operator that will offer the new LG Optimus G Pro handset over its network and it will have LTE.
The latest leak sheds some light on the upcoming Optimus G Pro smartphone. @Evelaks has leaked a new press shot of the Optimus G Pro all with AT&T branding. According to a previous rumor, AT&T may launch this device on May 10th. You might already know that Optimus G Pro is very similar to Note II in many ways. According to Engadget, the U.S. version of the G Pro will carry the following features:
