LG-Macau-eventLG has had a lot on its plate lately, mostly trying to advertise the hell out of the company’s newest flagship smartphone, the Optimus G Pro. The 5.5-incher has for now been unveiled in the US, Korea and Japan, with the last two set to get special versions of the device as well — sporting a slightly smaller, 5-inch panel.

At the same time, the rumor mill has accelerated its churning on the Optimus G2, the next LG high-end device, rumored to come out in the fall with a Snapdragon 800 CPU beneath the hood. Now we’re hearing that LG is prepping another special event, scheduled for May 30 in the exotic Macau Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China.

And the Macau event is not to be a modest one, mind you, because many high-profile tech websites have reported receiving invites over the past 24 hours. But what exactly is LG planning for May 30?

Honestly, we don’t know, but it can only be one of two possibilities. Either the Optimus G2 will come (much) earlier than expected, or a China-bound version of the G Pro, likely called GK or something like that, will be introduced.

Unfortunately, the odds of the G2 being revealed are astronomical, as much as we’d love to see that beast in the flesh. The G Pro is far too fresh for LG to already divert our attention from it and also Macau is not exactly the dream stage for a high-profile smartphone unveiling. Which leaves only one fairly unexciting scenario. Bummer, eh?
