LG Optimus 4X HD P880 launching in Europe next month
LG announced that its first quad-core smartphone, the Optimus 4X HD P880, will be officially available next month (June), in “key markets starting in Western Europe.”
First announced at MWC 2012 in February, the Optimus 4X HD comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a 4.7 inch HD IPS display, 1.5GHz Tegra 3 processor, 8MP backside illuminated camera, 1080p video recording, 1.3MP camera on the front, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, and a 2130 mAh battery (this uses a new technology called SiO+, providing “higher energy density for more power and longer run times without adding bulk to the phone’s already svelte form factor”).
Interestingly, LG says it plans to offer a software update for the Optimus 4X after launch, which will bring Eco-Mode – an app that allows “users to manually shut down any of the Tegra 3’s cores for even more control over power consumption and performance.”
After hitting European shelves, the LG Optimus 4X HD will be released in various countries across Asia and Latin America. LG didn’t unveil the new handset’s official price, but it will likely cost you around €500 SIM-free.
