The LG Optimus G Pro arrived in Asia early this year and it’s a hot seller. No wonder AT&T wanted an exclusive for this smartphone. If larger phones appeal, this 5.5-inch beast is worth the look.

On Wednesday, AT&T scored another smartphone exclusive. This time it’s the LG Optimus G Pro, an Android 4.1.2 handset boasting a large 5.5-inch, full high-definition screen. Pre-orders for the phone, which is $199 with contract, begin on May 3 and AT&T will sweeten the deal with a free Quick Cover folio case for the handset.

LG’s Optimus G Pro is the follow-up to the company’s Optimus G from last year. That phone was also very similar to the Nexus 4 that Google partnered with LG to design and build. As good as the Optimus G was — it has been one of LG’s best sellers to date — the new Optimus G Pro offers substantial upgrades including:

  • Qualcomm’s 1.7 GHz quad-core processor and 2 GB of RAM
  • Full 1080p resolution on the 5.5-inch display, which is 400 pixels per inch
  • A huge 3140 mAh battery, which should easily last a full day
  • Rear camera with 13 megapixel sensor and front-facing 2.1 megapixel camera
  • Internal storage of 32 GB with a micro SD expansion slot

Of course, the phone uses AT&T’s LTE network where coverage allows and falls back to HSPA+ service as needed. I’m not a fan of smartphone exclusives — here’s why — but this is another solid smartphone offering from AT&T that should rival its other flagship phones ranging from the Apple iPhone to Galaxy S 4 and HTC One.

    As a LG fan I would like this phone ~ but AT&T, network coverage will keep me from getting it~ My friends have coverage where AT&T doe not~~ Hoping LG will release it to other companies !!!!
