Quad-core LG X3 gets benchmarked, specs confirmed
The LG X3 has surfaced again. We’ve heard about this device once before, and we assume that LG will announce it on the eve of Mobile World Congress later this month.
The X3 will be one of the world’s first quad-core phones. Most of its previously rumored specs have been confirmed today via one of MoDaCo‘s sources. Of course, you’ll have to decide just how seriously you take all this info. All of it does sound pretty plausible to us though, so while a pinch of salt is always good to have nearby, we’re betting that the X3 is indeed coming soon (hopefully with a less confusing name – after all it won’t be a triple-core smartphone).
So, the LG X3 will have a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor (which is actually penta-core), clocked at 1.5 GHz when just one core is being used, and 1.4 GHz the rest of the time, a 4.7-inch 720×1280 HD touchscreen, a 2,000 mAh battery, 16 GB of built-in storage space, microSD expansion as well, an 8 MP main camera with a fast shutter, a 1.3 MP front-facing camera, and it will run Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich, as is evident from the image above.
That has leaked today alongside a benchmark result for the X3, which scores 4412 in the new Quadrant. That should mean something for benchmarking fans. By the way, the kernel is 2.6 and not 3.0 because apparently that’s the latest optimized code pushed by Nvidia. And with such a monster processor, it kind of makes sense to have everything optimized for the hardware.
