LG announces quad-core Optimus 4X HD


LG just couldn’t contain themselves and decided to unveil their entire 2012 lineup before Mobile World Congress. Tonight the Korean company has officially announced the Optimus 4X HD. This is the quad-core beast formerly known as the LG X3 and also the same phone that we think will launch as the T-Mobile G4X.

“LG introduced the world’s first Dual-Core smartphone exactly one year ago and today we’re announcing the next milestone,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Mobile Communications Company. “But speed in itself isn’t what makes LG Optimus 4X HD unique, it’s the benefit we’re bringing to customers with the HD multimedia experience in a mobile form factor.”

The main attraction of the Optimus 4X HD is of course the Tegra 3 processor which features 4-PLUS-1 CPU cores. Right now the official press release out of Korea does not include the full specs, so we will have to wait for MWC to find out the full list of hardware.

Confirmed specs of the Optimus 4X HD include:

  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
  • 1.5 GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor
  • 4.7 inch 720p True HD IPS display
  • 8 megapixel rear camera, 1.3 megapixel front camera
  • 1 GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage
  • 2150 mAh battery
  • Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, WiFi 802.11b/g/n
  • MHL, DLNA, etc.
  • 8.9 mm thick
  • SHSPA+ 21 Mbps support
One version of the press release claims the Optimus 4X HD would ship with Android 4.0, so this would be LG’s first device with Ice Cream Sandwich. As more details continue to roll in, we will update this post.
