Previous rumors indicate the LG Optimus G Pro might end up stateside in early May through AT&T. Today, LG began issuing invitations for a special mobile event taking place in New York City on May 1st. Without any explicit confirmations through the invitation, we believe the LG event will serve as the stage for the Optimus G Pro launch in the United States.
Specifically, the event includes captions such as “Share the Genius” and “Capture the Spotlight in True Brilliance.” I imagine the captions are alluding to special software features that are possible by superior hardware. On paper, the Optimus G Pro is rumored to be a strong contender, but we will know more following the event.
The Optimus G Pro serves as the follow-up to the Optimus G, but it includes a much larger screen making it a phablet competitor. LG will likely compete with HTC and Samsung as the top three Android smartphones that will be available. It will be an exciting battle between the One, Galaxy S 4, and the impending Optimus G Pro. Stay tuned to Androinica for an event recap on May 1st.
