LG’s quad-core beast of a smartphone is just about to be unleashed on these shores.
The Optimus 4X HD has a Tegra 3 quad-core processor on board, clocked at 1.5GHz, and a big 4.7 inch display with a 720p resolution. It also benefits from 16GB of storage and an 8 megapixel camera.
That camera has an interesting feature which allows the user to choose the best shot from multiple images taken just before the shutter button is pressed.
Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Mobile, commented: “Beyond the fast processor, superb display and largest-in-class battery, the Optimus 4X HD is the first LG smartphone to feature the new User Experience (UX).”
“As the smartphone segment consolidates even further, it’s becoming more and more apparent that both great software and great hardware are crucial to stay on top of the game. LG intends to be a strong contender in both areas and the Optimus 4X HD is our proof.”
LG’s smartphone also supports DLNA streaming, and has a number of unique features on board such as the Quick Memo system. This allows the user to jot memos wherever they are in the OS, and has been previously seen on the Optimus Vu.
However, the Optimus 4X carries a newer version which allows for URLs embedded in memos to directly link to websites.
Pricing hasn’t yet been revealed, but it will be interesting to see how the handset compares with the Galaxy S III.
