With an expectation that AT&T would be launching the LG Optimus G Pro sometime in May, the carrier has since come forward with an official announcement. In short, AT&T will be releasing the Optimus G Pro on May 10 and they will have pre-orders available this coming Friday. For those looking for the date, the pre-orders will begin on May 3. Otherwise, aside from the price, the specs should sound familiar to those who have been following the earlier rumors.

Basically, that is to say the AT&T branded Optimus G Pro will arrive sporting a 5.5-inch 1080p Full HD IPS display with a 400 ppi. The handset will be powered by a quad-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, 3140 mAh battery and running Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.


Other features include a 2.1 megapixel front-facing camera and 13 megapixel rear-facing camera with full HD and Dual Recording. The Dual Recording, which is also on the front-facing camera, will allow the user to capture video from the front and back cameras at the same time. LG also has the Optimus G Pro loaded with a universal remote application and built-in Infrared sensor as well as software features to include VuTalk and QSlide 2.0.

Features aside, AT&T will have the Optimus G Pro priced at $199.99 on a two-year agreement. This handset will also be eligible for purchase under the recently announced AT&T trade-in program, which basically means of you have a handset to trade — you could get the Optimus G Pro for half price.
