Slowly but surely, LG is releasing more details about its "Share the Genius" event, that's scheduled for Wednesday, May 1 in New York City.

The event will take place at The Metropolitan Pavilion at 8 p.m. EST, and will feature the band Atlas Genius (hence, the "Share the Genius" event name).

Most importantly, however, is that the event will focus on the LG Optimus G Pro .

The handset debuted back in February, during MWC 2013. Its 5.5-inch full-HD IPS screen places it in "phablet" territory, and it's pitted as a direct rival to the Samsung Galaxy Note II .

In addition to its display, it has a 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor, a 13-megapixel camera, and SmartVideo eye recognition .

Currently, the handset is available overseas in Asia. It's heavily rumored that it will arrive in the U.S. on AT&T. Stay tuned to CNET, as we will be at the event to bring you all the details.
