LG E980 hits FCC, could be the Optimus G Pro for AT&T

Uh oh, Samsung Galaxy Note 2, you might be getting company soon on AT&T’s network. The LG E980 has now hit the FCC with AT&T’s LTE bands. For those that don’t know, the E970 was the model number of the LG Optimus G. This means it is very possible that the LG Optimus G Pro could soon be on its way to AT&T.

While Samsung’s Note 2 continues to dominate in the 5.5-inch+ smartphone market, the LG Optimus G Pro could possibly give Samsung a run for its money. The G Pro is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, has 2GB of RAM and 32GB of memory. Some of the other specs include a 13MP camera, and a 3140 mAh removable battery.

Of course there are quite a few other Snapdragon 600-based devices on their way in the coming months that could easily overshadow the Optimus G Pro, but if you really want a Note-sized smartphone powered by a Snapdragon 600 or higher without waiting for whatever Samsung brings with the Note 3, this one could sure be tempting.

At the moment we can’t say with certainty that the LG E980 is in fact AT&T’s version of the LG Optimus G Pro, but it seems pretty likely. If the G Pro does come to AT&T’s network, would you be interested or would you rather wait off for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3?

    This phone is awesome. It has 401 ppi on a 5.5 inch display unlike the Samsung Note 2 which has a bad display. Lenovo K900 is also a phone which is at least better than the Note 2.
    This is the best 5.5 incher smartphone in the world right now in my opinion.
    I hate smartphones which have a display that is 5 to 6 inch big but have pixel densitys ranging from 250 to 400 ppi.

      Any 1080p smartphone at 5 inches or under, doesn’t seem to make much sense to me. Just seems too small for that high of a resolution. That is why this phone, and the future Note3 look so good… I’m buying this phone as soon as its available.
