Posted In News - By AndroidPress on Monday, April 22nd, 2013 With No Comments »

Last week we confirmed that the folks from LG were set to debut a new device at a press event at the beginning of May, and now we know exactly what’s to be shown off come May 1st. That being the company’s latest flagship smartphone, the LG Optimus G Pro. Complete with a 5.5-inch screen and a dedicated home button, read on for more details on the upcoming event.

LG has been teasing that they’ll “share the genius” with us on May 1st in New York City with a few save the date emails, but today they’ve spilled all the details. LG will be showcasing and announcing the all new flagship Optimus G Pro and showing us its “genius” by hosting an Atlas Genius concert live in NYC.

So essentially the Optimus G Pro will be taking center stage. And with good reason. The smartphone packs a 5.5-inch 1080p HD IPS display, quad-core power, and more. That quad-core is a Snapdragon 600 series at 1.7 GHz accompanied with 2GB of RAM, and the device is paired with 16 or 32GB of internal storage. Then it’s rounded off with a 13 megapixel camera, micro-SD slot, and finally a 3,140 mAh battery for all day enjoyment.

As you can see above, LG has followed their earlier press invites with the Optimus G Pro clearly taking center stage, literally. LG will be hosting an Atlas Genius concert in the heart of NYC and the Optimus G Pro will be a big part of the show. LG invites us to “experience true brilliance” as we enjoy some classic Indie Rock and then see their latest smartphone.

Can the 5.5-inch quad-core powerhouse compete with the GALAXY S 4? That is the question. We’ll need some more time with it to decide. It should be headed to AT&T, and check out our hands-on coverage of the G Pro below.
