AT&T makes LG Optimus G Pro official, opens pre-orders May 3rd
AT&T has officially announced it will be bringing the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/284706==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/02/18/lg.optimus.g.pro.55.inch.display.400ppi.snapdragon .600/" rel='nofollow'>LG Optimus G Pro</a> to its <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/284707==http://www.att.com/optimusgpro" rel='nofollow'>network</a>. Confirming <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/284708==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/04/12/optimus.smartphones.to.extend.lte.capable.catalog. of.carriers/" rel='nofollow'>previous rumors</a>, the carrier will be offering the smartphone on a two-year contract with an up-front $200 charge, with pre-orders online and in retail stores starting from May 3rd for a release one week later, on May 10th. <br />
<br />
The Optimus G Pro houses a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor running at 1.7GHz with 2GB of RAM, and uses a 5.5-inch IPS 1080p display. On the back is a 13-megapixel camera partnered with a 2.1-megapixel front-facing version, with the two able to simultaneously record video. Inside, there's a 3,140mAh battery, 32GB of storage with expansion via microSD, LTE, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth connectivity, and the ability to use it as an infrared remote control.<br />
<br />
When <em>Electronista</em> tried the Optimus G Pro at <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/284709==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/02/25/full.hd.55.inch.display.snapdragon.600/" rel='nofollow'>Mobile World Congress</a>, the size of the screen seemed to be a bit too bulky for normal use, and was quick and responsive to use, though was slightly overshadowed by other devices on display. <br />
<br />
AT&T will be offering customers who trade in a recent model of smartphone at an AT&T store an instant credit of at least $100 towards the Optimus G Pro, with some models of phone providing higher levels of credit.
