Quad-core LG X3 to be sold as the Optimus 4X HD, T-Mobile G4X version planned too
The LG X3 will be unveiled this Sunday on the eve of Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, we’re expecting. This will probably be the company’s first quad-core smartphone. The recently announced Optimus L7 looks like it won’t be LG’s flagship device for this year after all.
The LG X3 will thankfully not be launching under that confusing name. Instead, PocketNow has heard, it will be called LG Optimus 4X HD when it hits the streets. That name highlights the quad-core processor that has been rumored many times (and even confirmed in a benchmark), as well as the 4.7-inch 720p HD touchscreen that it will come with.
The LG Optimus 4X HD will also be making its way to T-Mobile in the US, where it will be rebranded G4X (following in the footsteps of T-Mobile’s version of the Optimus 2X, the G2X – undoubtedly).
Other features of this upcoming beast: an 8 MP camera, 21 Mbps HSPA support, and it will be less than 9 mm thick.
We’ll be in Barcelona to play with the Optimus 4X HD, as well as all the other smartphones that LG and other manufacturers will announce.
