Quad-core LG X3 leaks with 4.7-inch HD touchscreen
The HTC Endeavor (which may get released as the Supreme) won’t be the only quad-core smartphone to launch this year. Samsung’s Galaxy S III may also get a quad-core processor, according to some reports, and now it looks like LG won’t be sitting idly by either.
Today LG’s first quad-core phone, codenamed X3, has leaked. The LG X3 may get unveiled next month during MWC. It will have a 4.7-inch 1280×720 HD touchscreen, a quad-core Tegra 3 processor, an 8 MP rear camera, a 1.3 MP front-facing camera, 16 GB of built-in storage, microSD card support, 21 Mbps HSPA support (with possible LTE versions for some markets), 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, and a hefty 2,000 mAh battery. Its thickness will be under 9 mm, which is quite a feat considering the specs.
It should run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich when it will hit the streets in late spring or early summer. As you can see from the render above though, it will still come with separate capacitive Android buttons. This seems like it’s still going to happen a lot this year, despite Ice Cream Sandwich supporting ‘soft’ or dynamic on-screen buttons a la the Galaxy Nexus.
