LG announces May 1st press event in the US. LG Optimus G Pro official debut?



The LG Optimus G Pro has caused quite a stir in the tech world. What has really got people going is its similarity to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Basically the LG Optimus G Pro was inspired by the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, so it’s not surprising to see it hit the US market,probably hoping to have as much success as the GNote 2, perhaps?

LG is officially holding its “Share the Genius” event in New York city on May 1. It hasn’t been fully announced yet but word is, it probably will be the announcement of the LG Optimus G Pro. Quite the title too (share the genius). Yes the launch event could be of something unrelated, considering LG dabbles in different areas of the electrical appliance world but considering the good reviews its been having, now would be a perfect time to launch it.

The LG Optimus G Pro will have quite the uphill task considering its competitors, HTC are set to launch the HTC ONE on 24th April and the Samsung Galaxy S4 making its debut just a week before May 1 event.

So what specs does this highly touted device carry? The LG Optimus G Pro has quite the spec sheet, impressive in fact, that could actually challenge the Galaxy S4. Its specs are as follows:

  • 1.7 GHz Krait 300
  • 5.5 inch True full HD 1920×1080 IPS display with 401 ppi,16m colours
  • A 13 mega pixel camera with 1080p HD video
  • 32 GB internal storage
  • SD card slot for up to 64 GB
  • A 3140 mAh Li-Po battery
  •  Jelly Bean version of Android
  • 4G LTE
  • 2 GB RAM

Quite the beast yes? It will be interesting to see how it challenges the other heavy weights in the smart phone arena especially the Samsung galaxy note 2 which is several months old. AT & T is rumored to launch the device on  may 10. LG previously revealed that the device sold more than half a million units in South Korea.
