Companies generally reveal their greatest and latest handsets at the MWC every year. However, it looks like LG thinks otherwise. The company has announced a slew of handsets in the last 4 days, and has announced another one today – the Optimus 4X HD.
The Optimus 4X HD is the successor to the Optimus 2X, the world’s first dual-core phone, and comes with a, yeah you guessed it right, Nvidia’s Tegra 3 processor. All the four cores on the Tegra 3 SoC can run as high as up to 1.5GHz. The Optimus 4X HD is also pretty slim with a thickness of 8.9mm, and comes with a massive 4.7-inch IPS display with a 720p (1280×720) resolution. The phone still has capacitive keys, and not on-screen buttons like the Galaxy Nexus. The handset also packs in 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, and a microSD card slot.
All the usual connectivity features like SHSPA +21Mbps, GPS with A-GPS and the usual sensors are also present. At the back of the Optimus 4X is an 8MP snapper aided by an LED flash, and accompanied by a 1.3MP shooter in the front for video calling. Thankfully, LG has also packed in a massive 2150mAh batter inside the handset!
Also, the handset will be running on Ice Cream Sandwich with LG’s custom skin on top, to ruin the whole ICS experience. The company will announce more details about the Optimus 4X HD including its price and release date at MWC next week.
