We reported on a rumor yesterday LG was planning to host an event on May 1 to possibly announce the Optimus G Pro, and you guys will never guess what made it into our mailbox. Well – besides our usual hourly dose of cat videos, we received an invitation to an LG event for May 1. Shocking, I know.

The event is scheduled to take place on May 1 in New York City and says “Share the Genius” across the middle of the invite. At the bottom of the invite we can see the LG logo as well as the words “Capture the Spotlight in True Brilliance.” No other information was given with the invite, although we believe it’s safe to assume this event is being held to announce the U.S. version of the LG Optimus G Pro, which we got our grubby little mitts all over last month.

If the May 1 event does turn out to be the U.S. launch of the Optimus G Pro, we’re hoping the other rumor of it being made available on AT&T starting May 10 will also be true. For now, mark your calendars and stay tuned to Ubergizmo that day as we’ll be sure to cover what LG has to announce in New York City.
