LG announces first quad-core smartphone
LG has continued its pre-Mobile World Congress announcements by unveiling its first quad-core processor smartphone, the Optimus 4X HD.
The manufacturer is billing the device as delivering a 'PC-like performance in the palm of one's hand'. The handset has a 4.7-inch (1280x720) HD screen, 16GB of memory, an eight-megapixel rear camera and 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. The Optimus 4X HD is 8.9mm thick and will run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG mobile communications said: 'LG introduced the world’s first dual-core smartphone exactly one year ago and today we’re announcing the next milestone. But speed in itself isn’t what makes LG Optimus 4X HD unique, it’s the benefit we’re bringing to customers with the HD multimedia experience in a mobile form factor.'
The device will be on display at LG's stand at next week's Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona.
