Normally $549.99 off contract, the phone costs $199.99 with the standard two-year agreement. That price includes an LG black folio case. AT&T promises a ship date of May 7, a few days ahead of the phone's official launch date of May 10.

Outfitted with a 5.5-inch, full-HD IPS screen, the phone offers a 1,920x1,080-pixel resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio. Powered by a 1.7GHz quad-core processor, the Optimus Pro comes with 32GB of flash storage. A microSD card slot allows for cards of up to 64GB in capacity.
