LG Optimus 4X HD Smartphone Unveiled Ahead of MWC2012

LG is having a rather busy pre-MWC2012 period; after the quick fire launch of the Optimus Vu, the Optimus 3D Max, the L3, L5 and L7 and the Optimus LTE Tag, the company has unveiled the Optimus 4X Max which will be the company's flagship, top of the range smartphone.

According to a Korean press release, the device will have a 4.7-inch 1280x720 pixels capacitive display which matches that of the HTC One X and should help it compete with the Galaxy Note and even the LG Optimus Vu.

As expected, there's an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad core processor clocked at 1.5GHz, 1GB RAM, 16GB internal memory, an eight megapixel camera with a 1.3-megapixel front facing one, DLNA compatibility and a massive 2150mAh battery.

The phone is only 8.9mm thick, thinner than the iPhone 4S and will come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. As it stands, the Optimus 4X HD shares almost the same hardware configuration as the HTC One X.

Other than HTC and LG, Samsung, Huawei and LG will release quad core smartphones, almost certainly based on the Nvidia Tegra 3. Expect the Optimus 4X HD to be formally released at the Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona on Monday evening during a special event.
