Back in February we reported that the LG Optimus G Pro would be coming to the United States sometime in Q2 of this year. Now the LG E980 has shown up at the FCC with AT&T’s LTE bands in tow. Could this be the Optimus G Pro for AT&T’s network?
All the signs seem to point to yes. First, the LG E970 was the model number for the LG Optimus G, so the 980 sounds very likely to be the Pro. The timeline also seems to fit.
So if this is in fact the Optimus G Pro, that means that AT&T could soon get a direct competitor to the Note 2 on its network. Like the Note 2, it is a large-screen smartphone with a 5.5-inch 1080p display. Some of the other goodies include 2GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 600 processor. There is also Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and a 3140 mAh battery.
How about it AT&T customers, anyone excited about this one or do you think it will quickly be overshadowed by other great phones coming with the Snapdragon 600 later this year like the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4?
