LG prepping the launch of its first quad core phone, the Optimus 4X HD

LG has never been a major player in the smartphone market, not in the Android market for sure. With players such as Samsung, HTC, Motorola, and Sony Ericsson, it is difficult for LG to compete in the competitive world of today. But we are seeing a lot of hot and powerful Android smartphones coming out of the company’s stables from a few weeks. We saw that new LG Optimus LTE 2, which takes the credit of being the world’s first phone to have 2 GB of RAM.

Also, LG LS970 Eclipse is one awesome phone that is still in the pipeline for future release, the specs of which can melt the heart of any Android smartphone lover like ice cream. But that apart, LG is back in the news for another awesome phone, and this time, it is in the competition with Samsung’s new Galaxy S III and HTC’s new One X. Yes, the new LG Optimus 4X HD has an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad core processor running at 1.5 GHz which will for sure give the said two phones some competition.

LG Optimus 4X HD will sport a 4.7-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 1280 x 720 pixels resolution and will feature a quad-core 1.5 GHz Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, as well as 8 MP/1.3 MP dual cameras, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of on-board memory, a 2140 mAh battery, a microSD card slot, and Android 4.0 ICS out of the box.

Yes, that is what the LG Optimus 4X HD will bring with it. Isn’t that impressive? It sure is for me, expect the screen size though. I have been sued to the big 5.3 inch screen of the Samsung Galaxy Note and the 4.3 inch screen of my HTC Desire HD also looks a bit smaller to me. You just get used to it.

Anyway, the LG Optimus 4X HD will go on sale in select European countries by the end of June, these countries are Germany, Sweden, Great Britain, Italy, and Poland. Countries in Asia and South and Central American will receive the phone in the coming months, no exact date or month here. So be prepared to welcome this awesome piece of technology.
