T-Mobile G4X, first quad-core smartphone in the US with stock Android 4.0?

If you were a T-Mobile customer disappointed with last night’s announcement of the Galaxy S Blaze 4G, then take note. Evan Blass of PocketNow is reporting that the device we have been calling the LG X3 could be coming to the US as the T-Mobile G4X. In global markets, the device will be known as the Optimus 4X.

Evan has a damn good track record and T-Mobile did launch the Optimus 2X as their G2x, so we believe this rumor is likely to come true. LG is expected to officially unveil this device in the coming days at Mobile World Congress.

Rumored specs of the LG Optimus 4X include:

  • Quad-core Tegra 3 processor
  • Android 4.0
  • 4.7-inch 1280×720 display
  • 8 megapixel rear camera, 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera
  • 16GB of expandable storage
  • Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, WiFi 802.11b/g/n
  • HSPA+ 21 Mbps support
  • 2,000mAh battery
  • Under 9mm thin

T-Mobile’s G-series has long been popular with the hardcore Android users because they ship with stock Android instead of the manufacturer’s custom skin. If the G4X follow that trend, it could be the first quad-core Android phone in the US with stock Android 4.0.

Even though the specs look impressive, we will have to wait and see how the device performs when released. Many customers, including myself, experienced all kinds of problems with the original T-Mobile G2x and LG was slow to address the issues. Hopefully they learned their lesson and this device will live up to the hype.
