Forced to live in Samsung’s shadow for several years now, LG is finally looking capable of breaking in the mainstream smartphone world. The company’s latest flagship device, the Optimus G Pro, has everything it takes to fight in the same league as the Galaxy S4, save for one key thing – a US release date.
We know very well America is the most important stage of any fight for global supremacy in the tech world, which is why LG has to release the G Pro stateside and it has to do it yesterday. Fortunately, rumor has it the stunning 5.5-incher is in fact headed to at least two major US carriers in the next month or so.
AT&T and Sprint are LG’s alleged partners, with a little bird telling us that the grand G Pro US unveiling might take place on May 1 in New York City. Coincidentally, that’s the day T-Mobile is expected to start selling the Galaxy S4, while AT&T is likely to be putting the “next big thing” up for grabs a few days earlier.
Of course, even if the rumor proves legit, it doesn’t necessarily mean LG’s Optimus G Pro will be available immediately after the press event. Then again, we can at least hope the giant will start selling by the end of May, which would complicate the battle for this year’s Android crown a little.
Remember, the G Pro sports a Full HD panel, runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and packs a quad-core Snapdragon 600 CPU, 2 GB of RAM and a 3,140 mAh battery.
