There's another relatively massive beast of a smartphone in town - over the sea, actually - with the name LG GX here near the end of 2013. What we're looking at here is a device that's extremely similar to what was presented with the LG G2, only here we've got a bit more of a traditional layout with buttons along this smartphone's sides rather than its back. You'll be working with a 5.5-inch display with 1080p IPS LCD technology and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor under the hood.
LG's "G" brand continues to represent the cutting edge in top-tier smartphone hardware. LG cut the mold for the Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor last year with the LG Optimus G, brought one of the first Snapdragon 600 quad-core processors to the market with the LG Optimus G Pro, and again aim to be the first with the newest in new Qualcomm processor technology (in the USA) here at the tail end of the summer in 2013. That processor is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 and this smartphone is the LG G2.
If you hadn't already guessed that the August 7th New York City event being held by LG would be home to their next-generation hero, follow-up to the LG Optimus G from last year, you may as well give in this weekend. Today a set of three (count them - three!) screenshots have leaked with 1080p resolution about them and an aim for LG's soon-to-be-official handset. These images go on to solidify a collection of rumors we'd heard previous to this weekend and suggest some new abilities for the hero as well.
As we edge closer to the release of LG's next hero smartphone, it appears more and more likely that it will be coming with a display that's nearly edge-to-edge. What this means is, like a "Fat Free" box of crackers, there is a little bit of a bezel around the edges, but it's close enough to say it's simply not there. The device that's being pictured today in relation to LG's next smartphone release is also being tied to the name LG Optimus G2.
LG's Optimus G Pro phablet has launched on AT&T today, with the sizable smartphone on sale for the first time in the US. Priced at $199.99 with a new, two-year agreement, the Optimus G Pro has a 5.5-inch Full HD display and a 13-megapixel camera, with a quadcore 1.7GHz processor lurking inside.
The LG Optimus G Pro brings a massive upgrade to the LG Optimus G, a device put together so well that Google decided to use it for its most recent hero smartphone, the Nexus 4. The LG Optimus G Pro has been released internationally with essentially the same hardware build as you're seeing here, AT&T's additions being largely app-centric. That leaves the same high-powered processor, 5.5-inch display, and collection of odd software abilities that draw us in just as much as they did in the original.
We're still a week away from LG's Optimus G Pro from officially releasing in the States, but as promised, pre-orders for the new handset have officially begun. The AT&T-exclusive device is available now for purchase, with a ship date of May 7 in the hopes that you'll get your new Optimus G Pro on your doorstep in time for the May 10 launch.
AT&T has officially announced pricing and availability for the new LG Optimus G Pro, and as expected, the new flagship smartphone from LG will be available exclusively on AT&T's network starting May 10. Pre-orders start this Friday, May 3, at which point you'll be able to grab one for $199 after signing a two-year contract with the carrier.
Today the device known as the LG Optimus G Pro has appeared in a leaked image which suggests that the company will be working with AT&T for its first release. This device has been released internationally to more than one market this year, and will be appearing in-person at a concert event in May. LG has been tipped to be working with Qualcomm once again to deliver the same processor embedded in the international version of the device, that being the Snapdragon 600.
