LG seems to continue the trend of “firsts” in mobile technology. Just before the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the Korean company announced the first quad-core smartphone in the world – LG Optimus 4x HD.
The Optimus 4x HD comes with an enormous 4.7-inch HD resolution IPS display. It packs a 1GB of RAM, 16GB internal memory, 8-megapixel main camera, 1.3 megapixel front camera, MHL, DLNA, and is fueled by a 2,150mAH battery.
But the main feature of this smartphone is its NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor having an architecture dubbed 4-PLUS-1. It has four processors working on heavy tasks and the fifth one working on mundane tasks.
The phone compresses these specs in just 8.9mm thickness. The Optimus 4X HD comes preloaded with Ice Cream Sandwich and a new version of LG’s UI. Information regarding the release and price is expected to be released on MWC.
