LG has pulled back the curtain on its first quad core smartphone, the LG Optimus 4X HD.
The LG Optimus 4X HD is the manufacturer’s first venture into quad-core phones. The device comes with a 1.5GHz quad-core Tegra 3 chip with 4-plus-1 technology offering what LG calls a 'PC-like' experience.
The LG Optimus 4X HD runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, has 16GB of internal storage, 1 GB RAM and an eight-megapixel Backside Illuminator (BSI) camera. The phone has a 4.7-inch 1280x720 IPS True HD IPS display and is 8.9mm slim.
'LG introduced the world’s first dual-core smartphone exactly one year ago and today we’re announcing the next milestone,' said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Mobile Communications. '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.'
LG also launched another two smartphones at MWC today (27 February).
The LG Optimus 3D Max is an update on the LG Optimus 3D. It runs on a 1.2 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor. The device is HSPA compatible with speeds upto 21 Mbps. It is powered by Android 2.3 Gingerbread but will soon be upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The device has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and dual-cameras, with the rear camera offering five megapixels.
The LG Optimus Vu is being promoted as a cross between a smartphone and a tablet by LG. It measures 8.5mm thick and weighs 168g. Like the LG Optimus 3D Max, it runs on Android Gingerbread and will be upgraded shortly.
The device boasts a five-inch backlit LCD screen with a resolution of 1024x768-pixels and an aspect ratio of 4:3. It comes with a dual-core 1.5GHz processor with 1GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. It also has an eight-megapixel shooter with LED flash and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.
