LG is on a roll, prior to MWC, so far they’ve already shown off three devices, the latest being the Optimus 4X HD. The 4X is a powerhouse to say the least, as it will be shipping with NVIDIA’s Tegra 3, a quad-core chip (4 main cores, plus 1 “companion” core), a 4.7-inch True HD IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1280 X 720, an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera for video chatting. The 4X will also be using Google’s latest Android build, Android 4.0+, Ice Cream Sandwich. Keeping this whole device running will be a decently sized, 2,150mAh Lithium-Ion battery.
Sounds like a pretty heft device, but despite such a massive screen, large battery and new processor, LG managed to keep the phone’s thickness down to a respectable 8.9mm. LG is really looking to make a splash by unveiling all these devices early, which they hope will translate into more foot traffic at MWC, which kicks off in just a few days. LG is going to have stiff competition at MWC, with Samsung, HTC, Microsoft and countless others looking to make some waves, but this Optimus 4X HD, should turn a few heads.
Full press release is below (translated via Google translate, the English is pretty broken and it doesn’t make a lot of sense.)
