The Optimus G2 is just around the corner, with a possible announcement coming August 7th in New York. In the meantime, there are already two very good LG handsets available for your buying pleasure, the Optimus G and Optimus G Pro. Even better, they can now be yours at rock-bottom prices.

AT&T is currently offering the Optimus G Pro for just $99 with a new two year contract, or you get get the older Optimus G for only $49. The promotion applies to both new and existing customers.

What’s the catch here? Nothing other than the offer is only for a limited time, ending July 25th.

As a refresher, the Optimus G packs a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro 1.5GHz processor, a 13MP camera, 2GB RAM, a 4.7-inch 768 x 1280 display, 16GB storage and microSD. As for the Optimus G Pro, you get a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 2GB RAM, a quad-core Snapdragon 600, 13MP camera, 32GB storage and microSD.

For those that don’t mind committing to a contract, it’s hard to beat these prices. What do you think, are you tempted to pick one of these up on sale or would you rather what a bit longer to see what LG brings to the table with the Optimus G2?

    Amazon is selling the AT&T LG Optimus G for $0.01 (2-year new and upgrade) and the AT&T LG Optimus G pro for $79.99 (2-year new and upgrade).

    Very tempting deals!

      While the deals are tempting indeed, I took another approach. I bought the G Pro outright from ATT for $549.99 + tax ($596). I did not get any plan from ATT, just bought the phone outright. I then unlocked the phone and am running on Tmo unlimited everything for $70 month. Everything works perfectly on Tmo as well, including 4G LTE. Also, if I want, as new phones come out, I can now sell the G Pro if I wish, add a small amount of $$ to the sale price and buy anything else that tempts me. I like where I’m at right now. Much better than being tied into a 2 yr contract.
