LG is apparently looking to draw some attention away from the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 launch plans with a mobile event of its own.
While LG did a great job with the Google Nexus 4 handset, it's still working hard to launch a powerhouse of its own in today's competitive market. With that in mind, the company just issued a set of "Save the Date" announcement invitations to an event scheduled for May 1 in New York.
LG clearly has something to show off, and most bets are on an LG Optimus G Pro debut. The company is keen on getting its next-generation smartphones to compete with the likes of Samsung and others, and it showed some obvious progress with its latest devices. The company enjoyed some great success with the LG-made Google Nexus 4 and the Optimus G smartphone, and the LG Optimus G Pro is now poised to keep the ball rolling.
The company unveiled the new and improved 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080p Full HD LG Optimus G Pro back at the Mobile World Congress (MWC), and it's about time the handset hit the market. Some rumors suggest the smartphone will hit AT&T in early May, but nothing's certain until some official news surfaces. Most likely, the LG Optimus G Pro will take center stage at the LG mobile event on May 1.
Previous reports suggested that the new LG Optimus G Pro smartphone passed through the FCC and is ready to land on AT&T's network on May 10. The handset reportedly hit the FCC last month, complete with AT&T 4G LTE on board, which means an actual launch is just around the corner.
The invitations LG sent out are vague to say the least, but the company must have something juicy enough to deserve a press conference. The event headline simply states "Share the Genius," followed by the subhead "Capture the Spotlight in True Brilliance." The background, meanwhile, shows a picture of a microphone. Will the LG Optimus G Pro capture the spotlight or does LG have other plans? Stay tuned for more details as they emerge.
