LG's mondo Optimus G Pro touching down during May 1 event
22nd Apr 2013 | 17:09
Some indie rockers welcome it to America
LG followed up on the save the date notices it sent out last week with a full-fledged invite to a May 1 event in New York City today, leaving little guesswork as to what we'll see in the process.
"LG invites you to share the genius of LG Optimus G Pro," it read in part.
Indie rockers Atlas Genius will be there too, making this a pretty hip happening and bringing sense to the event's "Share the Genius" tagline.
Word on the street is that the States will see the 5.5-inch version found in Korea, the larger flavor of the phone (Japan commands a 5-inch variant). There, the phone costs 968,000 won, or $864.59, but you can expect a cheaper price thanks to contract agreements.
The screen comes packing 400ppi while the rest of the handset is alight with a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage (SD card expansion available).
There are whispers the device will land on AT&T May 10, though we'll certainly get more specifics at the event itself about whether the Pro is a one-carrier pony or not.
TechRadar will bring you all the latest live from New York (event kicks off at 6:30 p.m. EDT), so come on back for more.
