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

The LG E980 has now hit the FCC with AT&T's LTE bands. Considering the E970 was officially known as the LG Optimus G, this could very possible be the AT&T version of the LG Optimus G Pro.

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?
